    One day, he looked at me

    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...

    LOL turns out it's been a busy day

    for him. He was on watch and was helping new people get situated and stuff. Says it's been extra busy! Sounds like I was overthinking :) I'm sorry for being that crazy girl everyone.

    I have cherished these past two days together.

    They have been so amazing. But I can't help but think about how tomorrow will be the last day. I just don't want to leave:(. I missed him so much and it sucks that this time is so short

    It's easy to walk away

    and date a civilian. But instead, we check our phones every second hoping for that five minute phone call or three word text message. We break down and cry when we miss him. We force that smile because the pride and love for our men is stronger than anything else. We cherish...

    and I can say I'm not fine today. Got to talk to my boyfriend yesterday for almost an hour and we only used this hour to argue about stupid stuff. Then he lost signal and he hasn't written me yet. Not sure if he's still mad or the ship as Internet problems. I am just sad and...

    I hate comparing things to how they were

    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

    Non military couples just don't

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

    I have found the best book ladies,

    i cannot put it down haha. It's called Confessions of a Military Wife. It's written by a marine wife but it's amazing. It really made me look forward to my future with my sailor and made me feel better about a lot of things. It will give you a good laugh if you need too :)
