    I had an amazing time with my soldier

    while he was home. He proposed Christmas morning in front of my family. We are officially engaged :) My ring is absolutely beautiful. We spent every moment together. I missed him so much, his smile, his laugh, his cologne, his kisses on my nose and forehead that I think is so...

    Day 9: I find myself to be writing in this log

    more towards the evening with college closely approaching. Still no letter, or word from him since the last phone call, a little tough but I know he's working hard. A big fear of mine is if he would begin to lose the love we share, I doubt it, but worry still hinders in my mind...

    My boyfriend is currently at AIT

    so we are long distance right now, I feel I am having a problem where I don't believe he values our relationship as much as I do. He is very loving especially when we are together, but it always feels as if he is very self focused whether it be his goals, future or life in...

    So my boyfriends mom scheduled my plane ticket

    and paid for it without giving me information beforehand. Now I can't switch my flight times without paying $200 on top of the $200 I owe her and then getting a taxi that'll cost $300. So this trip is gonna cost me $700 because my boyfriends mom can't ride in a plane alone and...

    Missing My Soldier.

    I've been reading some of your stories of how everyone copes with the absence of their significant other. I don't seem to find the right words to describe those feelings right now. I just know its hard for my family to see me this down, since he left for BCT. It's my first...

    They Say That Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

    So I made it through the sucky weeks that my boyfriend spent at Basic. I'll be honest; there were many nights that I cried myself to sleep and would wake up in the morning to mentally slap myself and pull it all together until Sunday. I was actually very fortunate; my boyfriend...

    Day 8: Visited his mother today

    Even though it's only been a day I can already tell it's way better than basic, my fiancé gets to keep his phone all week long but can only talk during personal time which isn't that long but at least it's daily and it's a phone call . Although I admit I am going to miss the...

    My soldier broke up with me yesterday.

    She's in AIT now while she was in basic we were the strongest we have ever been. We even have been talking about marriage. At her basic training graduation she even went ring shopping with her mom. She's been in AIT for about 2 weeks now and she's been so distant. When I would...
