    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...

    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...

    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 don't want to smother him.

    I don't want to push him away. Trying to find stuff to talk about with him is difficult. He's like a stranger to me... This is so hard.

    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.

    A week that feels like a month. Here's to hoping October passes quickly. 🍷 Is it irrational for me to be scared that he won't feel the same way when he comes back?
