    We're halfway through deployment now.

    My fiance messaged me today.

    Everything has been great since my last post. He called me on my birthday, we talked for a hour. I've been keeping busy and staying away from negative energy. But things were different today. He added in a lot of "...." after everything he said. He told me he was tired and...

    I received some gifts from my soldier

    while he's deployed. It amazes me how he puts in the effort to send me gifts even though he's on a tight schedule. I'm really trying to keep a positive outlook on this. If he can put in effort then I will try twice as hard.

    My husband didn't want to have a ring

    that he could possibly lose, so we got tattoos instead of wedding rings. We chose the King and Queen of Spades tattoos, on our ring fingers. The Spade, because it represents a leaf of the "cosmic" tree, Life. It also represents the seasons of fall, and winter. As well as the...

    My boyfriend hasn't brought up marriage anymore.

    But whenever we talk about the future and his next duty station after he comes home from deployment he'll say like "when we move" or "when we find out where our new station will be" I get really excited because I know he still sees me in his plans.
