    I've gone through a lot this week.

    Along with some really big life changes. I decided yesterday it was time to just be happy. I'm happy because my man has decided to support me in everything. I'm happy because I found a man who loves me unconditionally. I'm happy because I have him and I don't need anyone else...

    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.

    Guys I dream about him like 4/5 times a week.

    Sometimes it's a little upsetting, other times it's normal. The thing about it is that I feel like I'm fine. I don't worry although I do miss him and the thought of him makes me happy. Idk why my brain is doing this to me, I really need to figure myself out :(

    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.

    I've realized that these irrational

    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.

    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...
