    Spent the holidays with my man & it was amazing,

    sadly tomorrow is the day he leaves which is gonna be super hard considering the fact we spent every single day together this past two and a half weeks. I pray for the time to fly by. Oh yeah, & look at what I gotta :DDD

    I said goodbye to him last night.

    I ended my year with him but I didn't start a new one with him. I couldn't stop crying. We went somewhere alone and snuggled until midnight and I had to go home. He held me the whole time and I cried in his arms. This is our first time leaving each other since we got together...

    We've made it through the multiple goodbyes,

    boot camp, graduation, A school, him being home, and now we're a little ways into his first deployment. It seems so miserable in the beginning, but man let me tell you it sure is an adventure! There's been some ups and downs, but over all I wouldn't change a single thing about...

    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...

    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...

    all I have been able to do today is cry.

    he hasn't even been gone a week. but he hasn't start a school yet and they aren't telling him when he will start. which means I don't know when he can come home and all I can do is think about him. why does it hurt this much

    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...

    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...

    I live in Florida and his next station is Norfolk, Virginia. I mean I guess it could be worse but it feels like a giant weight on my chest. That's about 11 hrs from me and with me going to college it's gonna be hard. Love takes sacrifices. I just wish it could be easier...
