    Deployment

    I guess I have a question that not many people may have the answer to. But after A school would my sailor be likely to get sea duty or get stationed. Guess I'm just curious about other peoples experiences:)

    So it's only day 2 of my boyfriend being

    deployed and it is already insanely hard to handle. The fear of not knowing if he is ok and safe is incredibly overwhelming. How do y'all cope?

    The First Night Update

    So, as I thought it would be, the first night was pretty hard. My mind is programmed to already expect a phone call at night from him, and I had to remind myself that it (sadly) was not going to happen. I made the bittersweet mistake of listening to his last voicemail to me...

    It's For The Bold Not The Fearful

    Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for for a little time with the one they love. It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough.
