    Sometimes, I Wonder...

    There are times I wake up in tears.I can never remember the nightmare that caused them- bits, pieces, but never enough to piece together what occurred entirely. Then I begin to think, and my mind wanders instantly to him. I remember exactly the way he looked in his uniform, the...

    Hey girls , Just wondering

    if any of you are in the Norfolk, VA area. My sailor is stationed there and I'll be moving there soon once the semester is over. Really nervous about making the move and not knowing anyone over there :(

    Well trying to think on the positive side

    (which is so hard since I've been missing him so much these last couple days) today I have a phone interview for the Disney College Program which I never would have applied for if Josey hadn't joined the Navy because I wouldn't have wanted to spend 5 months away from him. Now...

    Today is one of those days

    where I just feel really lonely and wish he was a phone call away ... It's just so hard to be away from him this long .. I know it's only been a month and other people have it worse but I'm really starting to question whether I'm strong enough to do this or not ..

    As Valentine's Day Approaches...

    I have always thought Valentine's Day was stupid, but it makes me miss Mikey, of course. I was talking to some of my friends about what they are doing etc.. I was just thinking how lucky we are, their men will probably never write them a love letter. Our civilian girlfriends will...

    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.

    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...

    Navy Girlfriends Prayer

    I'm so new at this. We just started dating -

    and I know he isn't deployed yet - and he's online - but he's been so cryptic lately. I don't want to bug him - but I have no idea what's going on in his head. I feel like I have no one to talk to about this. Wish I knew other girls who have gone through the same thing.

    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...

    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
