Planning A Wedding. Soo Stressful. :b


You think you know me, but you haven't the slightest clue. Im the brunette standing behind you in line at the grocery store, eyeing the newest "Support Our Troops" magnet while paging through the latest issue of Modern Bride. The look on her face is lost and her thoughts are thousands of miles away on some military base she's only been verbally described of over the phone. Im the young girl in the... next car. The radio is set to one of the local country stations which is currently playing "Letters From Home." Im the girl who is planning an entire wedding on her own, with only the little input she can get from her husband-to-be over the phone.Im the girl who visits the Marine Corp Wives website at odd hours of the night to find some kind of comfort for that lonesome feeling that has settled in the pit of her stomach. Im the girl who has fought an inner battle, trying to accept the path the man she loves has chosen. I'm the girl who will willingly sacrifice her family, her home to follow a man clear across the country. Im the young woman who swells with pride every time she sees her Marine standing tall in his dress blues.Im the one who spots a Marine sticker, license plate, or flag and feels a connection.I am the girl who tries her hardest to go about her everyday life. Im the girl who hates sleeping alone. I am the girl who closes her eyes and pretends that the man she loves is laying right there next to her, his arms wrapped around her. I am the girl who tries not to miss him, who tries not to cry whenever she hears his name or even the mention of soldiers. I am the girl who is terrified that the love of her life will be sent off to war, enabling them to get married when they had planned, hoped, and prayed. I am many things. A daughter. A sister. A cousin. A niece. An aunt. A friend. But most importantly, I am the fiance of a United States Marine. ♥
