    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...

    never in a million years would expect "just

    friends" to hurt more than cutting everything off.

    Nothing feels better

    than having his family there to love and support you. That phone call from her made all the difference today as he starts this journey.

    My Life as a Military Girlfriend

    I hold no formal recognition with the powers that be. I am at the bottom of the chain. I hold no Military ID card, I am not a dependent or a parent. The man I love may face unspeakable dangers, and I am at the mercy of those who possess this recognition for news. I understand...

    Today's the day. The day he finally comes home.

    The one that I've waited for for 6 months. After today I'll leave with him. Nervous but excited :)

    So after a 13 hr drive by soldier is finally

    home! The only bad side, is he's not at his dads for two days so I have to wait to actually spend proper time with him. He did come and see me last night quickly when he first got home. Ahh so excited for the next two weeks with him!

    Dear girls who can drive five minutes to their

    significant other and not spend over 500 dollars on a fight to maybe see him for a Few hours on the weekend: Understand how truly blessed you are. Sincerely all military girlfriends, fiancé's and wives who are not anywhere close to who their hearts desire.

    Not everyone is fit to be a girlfriend of a

    Military Man, whether he be at boot camp, AIT, deployment, or training. But you must choose to let them go in the beginning or be by their side from the beginning to the end. The truth is no one is ready to take on this life, but for those that stick by them til the end it is...

    My Soldier was sweet enough to set an alarm

    so he could wake up and talk to me despite being out in the field and only sleeping 6 hours in the last week just to talk to me before the start of my week. This is the kind of stuff that makes it worth it.

    .. It was so good to finally hear his voice!! Too bad we couldn't have talked longer though but I'm thankful for the time I got! He says a lot of people in his platoon have been getting sick so it's a "vicious cycle of getting sick the unsick then sick again" but he sounds great...

    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...

    For all the girls worried about their men

    changing during bootcamp, they don't! Mine didn't, he was the same goofy loving man he was before he left. If anything he's more sentimental and caring.

    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.

    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.
