    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...

    I'm going to be really sad

    if I don't get a letter today. Especially since I didn't get one last week either. I know he's busy and don't have much time to write, but there's always that fear that he didn't simply just because he didn't want to. What if I don't ever get another letter? :( Thank GOD there's...

    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...

    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...

    Missing you gets easier everyday

    because even though I'm one day further from the last time I talked to you and saw you, I'm one day closer to the next time I will. <3

    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

    Connecting with families

    and friends from his division feels amazing. I'm glad I found these groups. Girls if you haven't all ready do a quick search on Facebook of his PIR date, you'll surprised at what you find. I even got to order his division shirt before they went off sale!

    I think I'm beginning to figure this all out. I have my awful days. Those days where you want to do nothing but sit in your bed and cry. Where you feel like you miss him so much all you want to do is sleep until he returns again. And the days where I'm so insecure about myself...

    You loved me when I was loving the wrong guy.

    You made me laugh when my cousin died and I had no sense of humor. And you took a risk and decided to start your game by adding your number in my phone. We would call each other "uncondish" because you made fun of me when I sang that one Katy Perry song. You took me by surprise...
