    Homecoming Reality

    I'm not sure why people don't talk about the realities of homecoming and adjusting to life, love and relationships, post-deployment, but it's something people need to hear. Homecoming is the most amazing moment you will ever experienced. There's something to be said about...

    So I'm an emotional wreck I don't know why.

    I feel like I'm probably pmsing and overreacting. I just miss my marine so much. I am so grateful I get to talk to him once everyday for maybe 20mins. But I'm just a ball of emotion. Last night I cried all night. Don't even ask me why? Because I don't even know. He was out until...

    I Love My Marine

    Being married to a Marine isn't the easiest thing to do. It can be a pain that is for sure. You never know when he's coming home and then they get deployed and you don't know when they are coming home. But it's worth every moment. I wouldn't trade it for nothing in the world. I...
