    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...

    To All The Girls Whose Men Are In Boot

    I want to show you why you can get through this. Why it is worth it. Just based on the reassurance to all the insecurities I had, which Mathew was able to tell me once he was in A School and had some time to loosen up and start really talking.   I know you're hurting...

    Navy Girlfriends Prayer

    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

    to get the first letter from your sailor at boot camp? It's been 9 days since he left and I know that doesn't seem like long but I'm a wreck and I feel like each day gets harder and harder. I just want to know how he's adjusting and that he's okay
