Today I’m sharing with you a simple print that means a lot in our household. My husband is an active duty Marine, and I couldn’t be more proud of him. From the first time, he stepped onto the infamous yellow footprints at age 18 to now at age 34 he’s still keeping up with the younger generation of Marines, this journey of his will never be forgotten.
You would think that our home would be decorated in all Marine Corps things, but it’s not. We display a few things and if you were to walk into our home, you would never know we are a military family. Even though we don’t display his medals, flags, or uniforms throughout the house, I always try to incorporate something of his.
I wanted to create a print that I could display throughout our remaining time in Japan. So, why not create something that’s inspirational to us and many other military families.
Semper Fidelis is Latin for “always faithful,” and has captured the spirit of Marines, past, present, and future, since the 1880s.
Being faithful is an important element of a person’s life, in my opinion. And “Semper Fidelis” is more than just a military mantra; it exemplifies every honorable aspect of being human. Having faith means that there is always happiness to be found and it that there’s a glimmer of good in this chaotic world.
Faith creates life by giving meaning to it and I think there’s something really wonderful about that.
I would love to see how you display your lovely print. You can tag me on Instagram @paintmepinkblog.

Even though I don’t share much on our military lifestyle, I have so much respect for all the men and women who serve in our military.
