    I am confident in our relationship

    but sometimes I do get scared and have moments of doubt. I honestly feel like our relationship is just sort of a countdown until we get married.

    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.

    I am dreading Saturday.

    It's our anniversary and knowing him he will probably forget because he has so much other stuff on his mind and all day I'm going to have the constant reminder that he isn't here more so than most days.

    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.
