    So I got letter today from my sailor.

    It was good to hear from him but he told me that his leaders had to put names down of people not putting out. They put his name down even though everyone knows he's does everything asked of him, he puts out everyday. The instructors knew it wasn't true but he got his phone call...

    Just read his letter

    and it made me cry. Part of it said, "Carissa Maree Lynn, I'm gonna marry you someday." I melted. <3

    Today is the day! Hopping on a plane to Great

    Lakes, IL to surprise my boyfriend after his graduation ceremony πŸ’™ I can't wait! Stay strong to the rest of you ladies. Your day will be here soon enough and you won't even be thinking of how much you miss your SO. You'll just be thinking of how much you want to kiss them!

    Love

    I think I'm beginning to figure this all out. I have my awful days. Those days where you want to do nothing but sit in your bed and cry. Where you feel like you miss him so much all you want to do is sleep until he returns again. And the days where I'm so insecure about myself...

    and said, "Baby, I'm sorry for the Navy thing. I hate to put you through this." I looked him in the eyes and said, "I'm sorry for going to medical school to be a cardiologist." He said, "What do you mean? That's been your dream. I can't hate you for that." I said, "and I can...

    even know how incredibly lucky they are to get to see their other half everyday. Or every week. Or even every month.

    Girls, please don't give up on your guy.

    It will get easier, I promise. He needs you now more than ever. If you truly love him and believe he is the one for you, it will be worth it in the end. If you haven't heard from him, don't worry. That doesn't mean anything. Just keep hanging in there <3

    ! It was a long one too, 4 pages! He says how he is putting money in his savings every check he gets. Hes putting it aside so when he saves enough we can buy an apartment or house. I'm so proud of my man! Ahhh!! :D

    Remember ladies, it's not about the quantity of

    letters, it's about the quality. Don't worry if you haven't received a letter in a week. They're super busy and tired. I promise you they're thinking of you as much as they can. Keep your head up girls! We can do this :)

    It's easy to walk away
