    Today is the day! Hopping on a plane to Great

    Lakes, IL to surprise my boyfriend after his graduation ceremony 💙 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!

    This man really does know how to make me smile.

    I love going to bed after reading things like this ☺️ These next couple weeks need to fly by so I can have him back with me.

    boyfriend today but I'm even more worried to find out that it's because he was stuck in bed because he got his wisdom teeth pulled out.. I'm so worried because every time he gets sick he doesn't know how to take care of himself. All he does is try to sleep it off. And I know...

    One day, he looked at me

    Today has been one of those days.

    . Where everything just seems to get on top of me. Haven't spoken to him in over 24hrs. He has duty every four days now which makes it even harder to talk on top of the 11 hour time difference!! I just miss him so much :(

    My boyfriend left for RTC a little over a week

    I know my sailor is busy and tired during the week, but when he makes these promises and then changes his mind it does hurt a lot. I can't tell him that because it will make him worry. I just feel really lonely, like I don't have anyone to talk to. I mean I know I have you...

    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
