    It's easy to walk away

    and date a civilian. But instead we wake up to an empty side of the bed, we check our phones every seconds hoping for that 5 minute phone call or three word text, we break down and cry when we miss him, we force that smile because the pride and love for our men is stronger than...

    I can finally say this!

    !!! After 7 months apart and numerous texts back and forth and 1 Skype date, my man is home!!!!! I should be seeing him this weekend and I can't wait to wrap my arms around him. I can officially say we survived deployment number 2 and we are so much strong because of it.

    I loved you before the uniform

    and I'll love you after. before the dog tags and combat boots. before the sleepless nights and unwanted tears. We've been through it all. To be where we are today are worth those homecoming kisses because true love conquers all.

    I feel so alone without him here.

    None of my friends or family understand what I am going through. Everyone just expects me to tough it out and put on a brave face. So that's exactly what I do. When I'm around my friends and family and even working, I put on a brave face. But as soon as I step into my bedroom I...

    He's might come to see me this weekend.

    How often do they normally get mail?

    ? Is it like an everyday mail thing or only once or twice a week? I'm trying to decide how often I should send letters when I am finally able to. And do you suggest sending a bunch of different days in 1 letter, should I send each day separately, or should I wait to write him...

    reenlisting and I didn't want him to because of the overwhelming fear I have that something could happen to him. I never said anything to him. Silently, I would hope he'd change his mind while acting like his cheerleader on the outside. I had this idea that he's safer out in the...

    As I was stuck on what to write him,

    my phone blew up with texts from him and all of the words just came to me. I overthink and filter too many things when really, he just needs to know I'm thinking of him and I care about him. A 9 month hiccup.. that is all this will be in the end.

    In a military relationship,

    getting married or engaged at a young age is normal. Because to us we probably don't have forever, but we have right now. So we take it, and appreciate it. That's why we decided to grow up faster and be the spouse of someone in the military. We chose to put things aside for our...

    Days are weird. They don’t always make sense.

    One filled with inconsolable sobbing, followed by the next with unexplainable happiness. It sucks. It’s hard. It’s a constant whirlwind of emotions, many which you never knew existed. Every time you think things are about to even out, you wake up in tears; you roll over and...

    We have so much going on but right now he's visiting his family. I'm glad he gets to see them but part of me wishes he was home. I have a doctors appointment Wednesday that's super important for the both of us but he won't be there. I just hope he's having a good and safe trip.
