Well, my boyfriend left for basic training yesterday. Saying goodbye was honestly harder than I could have imagined, because I just didn't want to let him go. He even cried, and I didn't expect that at all. Today was also my birthday and I'm on my period so I have been extra emotional about it! I don't think it has even hit me yet, I think in a week or two I'll be more of a wreck than I am now. I know that I will get through this and our relationship will be so much stronger, but it's just a hard adjustment to make. I am so thankful to have such a strong brave man in my life though, and I can't wait until I get my first letter!
