    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...

    On a rollercoaster ride it seems.

    But things are beginning to look up. He surprised me last night by saying that the plans for christmas are back on because he made it happen. And to top it all off, he's bringing his dad with him which means so much to me. His dad is his whole world and I'll be able to meet him...

    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...

    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.

    but I can't help but think I will totally break down when I get alone time with him. He's the one person I will cry infront of and who gets me...but he hates when I cry. I am so nervous. Is it bad if I break down infront of him?

    I've realized that these irrational

    and bipolar emotions are all apart of being a military significant other. One minute you love him & you're happy, the next you're asking yourself what the hell am I doing then he says something that reminds you why you're doing this & why it's all worth it. But a few moments...

    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...
