THIS IS NOT SPAM... I promise!!! I did it for my boyfriend. They are creating and shipping FREE photo books to FPO/APO addresses- if your boyfriend is deployed you can make him a FREE 20 page photo book and they'll provide shipping too! :D SO THOUGHTFUL! I'm sending it IN addition to my care packages- just an extra pick me up for my man!
SPEAKING OF- I can't express enough how thankful I am to have such an amazing support system while my love is in Afghan! I miss him so much but in all honesty my friends have made this time apart PRETTY bearable so far. I know I have a ways to go but I have great friends and family! :D YOU GIRLS included! :) I dont know what I would do if I hadn't stumbled onto this site. What a lifesaver sometimes right?!
OOOH--- I have a quick rant- I was talking to a friend of mine (coworker, acquaintance, whatever) about Ian reenlisting because he still hasn't made up his mind. So I said, "basically if he gets out there is no rush to get married. We can date till whenever, but if he reenlists, I want to get married and move to him cause I can't be alone for another 5 years" She called me an idiot and said that is a terrible idea and I should marry him for love not convenience. Then she said I'm rushing into it. #1 He has NOT popped the question or reenlisted yet so I'm speaking hypothetically #2- you ladies KNOW that I am NOT marrying him JUST to move. I would marry him tomorrow no matter where he was stationed. I love him. I can see us growing old together. He is an exceptional man and I've never met anyone who even comes close to his amazingness--- THAT is why I would marry him. #3- it is MY business and even if we've only been together for 10 months (in a military/ long distance relationship thats like 2 fricking years) I KNOW I could live WITH him... If I can live WITHOUT him for this long and stay in love with him, I know I can handle the quirks that usually drive women insane.
Damn civilian girls just do NOT get it. Then she had the nerve to complain for HOURS about her BOOTY call- not even a serious relationship- being gone for TWO weeks. Like seriously? Take it to someone else- I do NOT feel sorry for you! Psssssh Am I right ladies?! HECKS NO!
Anyhoo- I am hanging in there... trying to think of good care packages and cherishing the emails, and one minute phone calls I get now and then. I love him so much!!!! <3 SEMPER FI <3
