    Just got off the phone with my sailor.

    He is leaving to sea for a month. I know it is not a lot at all because we already went thru boot camp and A school and a few months when we weren't talking but I got off the phone and now I'm crying! I love this man so freaking much!

    It had been a while since I shared

    so I figured I update a little. I moved to Japan about two months ago with my twin girls. Slowly but surely my husband has been learning how to be a father. He was doing great but now it's deployment season. He has been underway since last Monday. Normally I would be devastated...

    Girls hang in there! I know how hard some days

    are; but push through it! I thought it would take forever for the day I get to see my sailor and I thought it would never get easier. And some days are easier than others. but at long as you try and keep busy; and write your sailors as much as you can. it will come faster than...

    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

    My honey is in basic training

    and will be graduating May 8th. I'm so excited for him, but I have not had a phone call in 17 days and I am unsure why. Has anyone else experienced this or have a suggestion for the cause of it?

    And he's gone again. The worst part about his

    deployments is the not knowing. I hate not knowing when he'll be back or when the next time I speak to him will be. For the next few months I'm going to be without my best friend.

    Those Moments..

    So tonight I'm laying here after writing my boyfriend a letter, and it's one of those nights.. One of those nights where it just feels like you want to go buy a plane ticket and be with him, just be near him, even if it's only for a little while. You miss everything about him...

    I keep re-reading the two emails I've received

    from my Sailor since he's went underway for the second time. Especially since he was unable to make my graduation and I know it kills him that he couldn't but just reading that it makes him want to cry in a good way because he's so proud of me makes it okay. Oh how I miss him..

    As Valentine's Day Approaches...

    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.

    All I can think about is how much I wish he was here laying next to me. He's sleeping and I've already texted him three times telling him how much I love him. I don't want to call because he has to be up in just a couple more hours. I miss him so much. I miss being able to touch...

    I keep checking my emails,

    he said it would take a while but its just upsetting, not having him there to make me feel better after days like today. I just wish he would come back already. I know that it will get easier than it is right now but for now I'm just a big mess of frustration and sadness

    Acceptance

    I haven't talked to him in over a week. This is the first deployment I've ever had to go through with him. Before I met him, I knew nothing about the military & didn't really care. The last person to be in the military in my family was my grandpa, back in like the 50s. I have...

    Anyone who had a loved one in any branch of the military knows this ride all too well, and sadly for us, it isn't a ride we can get off easily. Just when you have one foot out of the rollercoaster car, the ride takes off again. I am (of course) no exception to this wonderfully...
