    I hate the days we don't talk

    or barely say 2 words.. I know that these days happen, and I expect them to, but still sucks sometimes.. Just feeling a little down right now.. Missing his support and strength.. ??

    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

    Third phone call yesterday!

    Only about 10 min tho. He still has 25 days left so I'm surprised he's been able to call that much but I'm not complaining!!!

    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.

    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

    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...

    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.

    I walked into a small room

    and his back was turned to me. Hands behind his back and thumbs linked. three other guys stood next to him. The room was dead silent besides the sound of one of the moms crying. Tears streamed down my face, but they were happy tears. I am so proud of him and nothing could change...

    It's easy to walk away
