My name is Erika Barner. I am a military wife and a mother of 1. My husband and I have been together for almost six years and share one beautiful daughter. Her name is Zoey, and she is 3 going on 16. My husband has served in the military for nearly 17 years. We are currently in the middle of a deployment, which is proving to be extra hard as we approach the holidays. I was born and raised in San Diego by two schoolteachers who passed on their passion for education to me! Even though I was born and raised in San Diego, I am a die-hard packer fan, Go Pack Go. My husband is not a Packer fan; he wholeheartedly supports the Atlanta Falcons. It's good that they don’t play each other every year, that would be bad for our marriage. In my free time, my daughter and I like to go to Disneyland; we also spend a lot of time at antiques and thrift stores. I love collecting vintage items such as singer sewing machines and vintage colored Pyrex. I have been able to collect several beautiful pieces over the past ten years. Zoey loves the thrift stores as well; she loves finding treasures of her own! Tells us more about your interests by leaving us a comment on our social media!
