    It's been a week since we broke up

    and I really miss him. I feel like calling him tonight. Does this sound like a bad idea or should I do it??

    2 weeks left until he will be back!

    so hopefully not too long after that I'll see him, his phones broke so back to Skype which means we get to talk less but on the plus side only a few weeks to go and then he'll have a new one :) no word in a couple of days so will hopefully speak to him soon, wishing the days to...

    Feeling depressed my boyfriend left

    for some training he'll be gone a whole month. And it's over Valentine's Day so I'm bummed as well. I just got to keep busy and hope time goes fast. Being a army spouse or significant other is never easy but in the end it's worth it

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
