    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...

    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...

    Ok so I kinda want to say something

    and this is not meant to put anyone down or to make you feel bad. Just some advice. I've seen lately a lot of posts saying every thing is going wrong or that their guy is very distant or that they can't deal with this and don't feel it's right. The one thing I can say to...

    I got another letter today.

    It feels so good to know that he actually reads my letters and soaks in the words that I write. Especially since he hates reading and writing. :)

    I was at work and missed his call this morning

    by less than a minute, I had never been more mad at myself because I walked away from my phone without even thinking, but thankfully he called me back a few minutes later! I was crying like a baby in front of all of my coworkers but hearing his voice just made me so much more...

    It's so hard to believe

    that just a few months ago we had over 200 days till we would see each other again. Now here we are in double digits with just a few weeks. I'm eagerly waiting his return but it definitely is not coming quickly enough for me. I'm super excited and I get alittle more nervous...

    I was strong for us. But

    now I feel myself braking. I know he flirts, it's just who he is. I accepted it even before he joined the military. But now it's started to feel like they know him and talk to him more. I feel my heart braking. He asked to take the next step which is living together and I was...

    I just had one of the best nights of my life

    yet on my way home I couldn't help but wishing that he was there with me. My heart aches, it's his first weekend away at MCT and I'm terrified he won't get a phone call tomorrow.

    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.

    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...

    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...
