    I miss my soldier so much already.

    I know I still have a long while left until he's done with basics but I know my longing for him to be home will be worth it in the long run.

    I often read and reread the letters he sent me

    while at Boot Camp just because it is something personal and intimate. I catch myself smiling and laughing once in a while because i can hear his voice as my eyes go over the words. Not saying that phone calls and texts aren't but letters make it so much more romantic, and I...

    My boyfriend called me this morning at 5 am,

    I talked to him for about 4 minutes. The first time I've talked to him since he left 2 weeks ago. It's crazy how just the sound of someone's voice can remind you of how in love you are with them. Needless to say I've had a great day.
