    Dear you, We are just alike.

    We wait on our phone every night. We cry when certain songs come on. We have him as our wallpaper and have a playlist of our songs. We tear up seeing something about the military but when his branch is featured your heart starts pounding. When he is wounded you panic for him but...

    "Distance is not for the fearful it's

    for the BOLD, for those willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It's for those who know a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough."

    I felt like I should post this

    since I've read a few stories where girls are saying they haven't talked to their deployed man or soon to be deployed man is getting distant. In most cases it is true but there are some that are the exact opposite. I asked my cousin who had been in the military since 1994 if it...

    My boyfriend texted me last night,

    and asked me to take selfies for him, he said all the ones he had weren't current enough. I looked a mess, but I did anyway. He said how much he loved and missed me and how beautiful Iam. He's too cute ☺️
