My Story So Far.

I am not sure if anyone has noticed me comment here and there, but I am new.

I haven't written a real story in here yet because my sailor and I are not official, though we act like it for the most part. I live in Panama City, Florida which is where the Navy's Dive School is located and where Kenny was a couple weeks ago. He just recently graduated Dive School, and I was actually his guest to his graduation (besides his dad), so it was awesome watching him achieve that. He is now going through another phase of the EOD pipeline: EOD School in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida- Eglin AFB. After his graduation from Dive School we decided we would take things day by day, and the MAIN reason for this is because the last "real" girlfriend he had passed away. It was a year and a half ago and I don't know much about it, and I am not going to rush him into talking about anything he is not comfortable with.

Well, I went to visit him at Eglin AFB on Saturday after work, because it is only about an hour and a half drive away from Panama City. It turned out to be a greaaaat trip, we talked about a lot of things, and we definitely got closer and I can tell he has most definitely opened up towards me. This week things are going even better, he sends me cute text messages, letting me know he is thinking about me and all that good stuff and calls me. Now, this upcoming Saturday I have a wedding to attend, and I invited him to be my date. He doesn't have a car right now since he is in training and all, but he is actually looking for one now. So with that said, I will have to drive all the way to Eglin (which he HATES) to pick him up, then drop him off. So since it will be a kind of late wedding I am just going to drive up there early and spend the day over there then we will go to the wedding, and will be with each other all day. I am SO excited, because even though we are "taking it day by day" things seem like they are progressing.

Some background info (even though my story is long enough lol): I have been in a military relationship before. I dated a Marine once, and that was definitely an experience. I know how long distance works, and how military works, so I know I can handle it and I am not going in with my eyes closed. It also helps that I grew up a "Navy brat", and the funny part is Kenny did too. My dad was a Cheif Petty Officer and his dad is a Commander in the Navy.

Sooo, wish me luck ladies! I hope Saturday will be great :)
And I hope you all are hanging in there and keeping your heads up!
