    She said," when I'm with you it feels like I

    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.

    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...

    Today is the day! Hopping on a plane to Great

    Lakes, IL to surprise my boyfriend after his graduation ceremony ๐Ÿ’™ I can't wait! Stay strong to the rest of you ladies. Your day will be here soon enough and you won't even be thinking of how much you miss your SO. You'll just be thinking of how much you want to kiss them!

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    Love

    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...

    No matter what the circumstances,

    no matter how lonely the days get or how slowly time drags, just remember: Your sailor/ soldier/ marine/ etc. loves you more than you can imagine. These times are tests of faithfulness and loyalty. We see other couples together and instantly miss our man even more. But guess...

    I want you to know that I will always love you,

    even if you move across the country, even if you never speak to me again, I will love you more even then because absence triggers love. See, I didn't think I loved you until you were gone for months. I needed you to leave because I wasn't sure you were what I wanted but I know...

    Doesn't matter the quantity of time y'all have

    been together, it's the quality of that time spent. It's why military relationships are so unique. We don't need each other 24/7 in order to know there's love here. <3

    I just don't understand

    why he won't tell me he loves me in his letters. He will say everything else, like "I miss you so much. Can't wait to be done so we can talk." And so on. It's kinda like he's scared to say it and I don't know why. Can somebody please help me out here?! Lol
