    We are talking about marriage!

    I'm so excited within the next year we will be engaged and I'll be following him wherever he goes. I haven't told anyone yet, because ik they won't really understand. But I'm glad I have you ladies to share this exciting news with!:)

    We sent him off to A-School today.

    I cried, not because I'm sad, but because this brave man chose me to stay by his side. I'm so proud of him. <3

    So I really need help with my graduation plans!

    I got a hotel near the training center for the first night. He will be leaving the next day to go to A school , so would it be better to get a hotel near the airport for Friday night ???

    My boyfriend is currently at basic training

    for the Navy. He's been gone for a little under a month. Everyone told me that it would get easier, but for me it's just gotten harder. All I want to do now is cry. I am not myself at all. Please tell me that this is normal and that I'm not crazy.

    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...

    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 can't even begin to express how excited I am

    that there's only 12 days until my boyfriend graduates from Navy Boot Camp! I honestly thought that these 8 weeks would drag by, but they have seriously gone by faster than I expected them. 10 days until I leave for Chicago in 12 days until I get to wrap my arms around my love!

    The Wonderful World Of The Emotional Rollercoaster

    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...

    Girls. If you have problems with your SO's

    being distant before, after, or during boot camp. Do not fret. Keep calm. Don't give up on them. Support them. Be there for them. I know how hard it is, but I promise little by little they will open back up. And be the same one you fell in love with. At least, that's what...

    I wish I was closer to my bf.

    He is on the opposite side of the country and plane tickets are just too expensive. It is so hard having to decide if it is worth $400 to see him for a weekend or wait until December to see him again. At least there is Skype!

    It's easy to walk away
