    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...

    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

    My baby will be home in just three more months.

    I can hardly believe it. It seems like just yesterday I was kissing him goodbye in front of the airport terminal.

    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...

    This week is hell week

    for my sailor.. It's going to be the first time we don't get to talk for days at a time in a really long time, since boot camp. Anyone have words of advice? I'm nervous about how upset I'm going to get from missing him/ that I'm going to reach my breaking point

    He would txt me first. Especially since he was underway it only made sense for him to contact me on e he got back. Well he came back to land and a whole month went by ( can't believe I stayed string enough to not get ahold if him) so anywYs it seemed as tho we had broken up...

    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...

    I spent the last 5 hours at the hotel with

    Tyler, but we all known I can't stay all day. Tomorrow he swears in and is off to Great Lakes. Everything feels very unreal. It literally feels like I am in a dream. He has been in DEP for 8 months and suddenly BAM the time has come. I miss him already.

    I miss him so much. He's been gone

    for almost 3 weeks now and the only communication I've had is through his mom. Is that weird? If he can talk to him family, why can't he contact me?

    Every time we make plans

    for a skype date something comes up. Either it is work - which I can understand and it's not his fault- or he does something with his friends, even after promising me that this time he won't go with them. It's so frustrating.

    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, 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
