    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    At night is when my head gets going the most

    It still shocks me that we've gone 143 days

    apart. And that we only have 68 days until we see each other again. Never thought I would be able to do it, but I guess love makes you do wondrous things sometimes. Less than a year & he'll be back in the states for good! We can definitely do this :)
