    I leave for Alaska in one week!

    I am getting nervous but it still hasn't hit me yet that I only have a one way ticket and I will be living there! I cannot wait to see my husband and start out lives together. After over 2 years of long distance it still doesn't feel real that it's actually happening.

    Me and my boyfriend are a pretty young couple.

    Have been in a serious relationship with him. He recently left last week for basic. I miss saying goodnight to him and falling asleep in his arms. I basically miss EVERYTHING! I want nothing more than to hear from him right now and time to go by so I can see him.

    being with me. He's been very distant with me lately, and I feel like I'm not a top priority for him, and it makes me so very sad. When we met, we clicked together so well. Now, I don't even think he feels the same about me :(
