    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...

    Nite Babe

    I wake up every morning and check my phone looking for a text message or hoping I didn't miss a random call. There's normally nothing. I go through my day working in a daycare practically on my own with nine screaming kids but I try to stay positive about it. The whole day I keep...

    When girls talk about having to go ONE WHOLE

    WEEK without seeing their husband or boyfriend, I'm just like "please shut your mouth." Girls that aren't milsos just have no clue at all.

    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...

    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...
