    What An Army Guy Told Me

    So, I have a blog where I write about everything. And recently I've been writing about my soldier a lot. Recently, I wrote about how I wondered if he thought about me as much as I think about him. He's in Iraq and I just can't imagine he has time to sit and think about me too...

    My boyfriend Stephen and I met in the first grade and we never thought that we would end up where we are now! He is a triplet (there are 2 boys and 1 girl). We were all friends when we were younger, them being some of my best friends as a child. After a few years due to family...

    So my man just started AIT

    and today is his birthday. I got him a gift and have it to him when I saw him on family day. But he's turning 21 and he can't even go out to a bar or anything. Does anyone have any idea what I could do for him to make today a little more special?

    All I can say is being a soldiers girlfriend is

    hard, and it sucks at times for different reasons. But if your willing to stay for all the right reasons, to stand by the man you love. In the end everything will turn out okay, and you'll know. It was worth the wait. He was worth the wait.

    When your friends ask you about your boyfriend

    and when you say you have to write letters they think it's so cute. But to me it was only cute at first. Now I just wish I could hear his voice or see his name pop up on my screen. Anyone else feel this way?

    My boyfriend is currently in AIT.

    He graduates in December, his motivation is weakening and he wants me to send him a package with something to help him get through the next couple months. Any ideas on what I could send him? we've been together almost 2 years and he has a 4 year old daughter(not mine).
