well we got engaged in sept as i said before…. we got married Oct. 12th! officially a navy wifey! we are saving up for a formal ceremony with family and friends. we are hopping to maybe have it in may… if it doesn’t work out no big deal.. but it will be sometime within the year! i am loving life<3 it’s so nice to have the love and support from our family and friends. every girl deserves her dream wedding, but in the mean time i get to call him my husband… and in the end that is all that matters!! <3
my sailors mom asked him for money today… he told her no because he was saving up for his leave & a ring for me………ahhhhh =]]
i was proud of him.. not because of the whole ring thing, but because i knew something like that would happen when he was gone. he didn’t join the navy to be everyones wallet.. he did this for himself and our future. he tells me that all the time… & i was worried his family would be hitting him up for money.. but im glad he stuck up for himself.. i don’t want all this separation to be for nothing yanno?
anywaysss only 60 days til the big move to south carolina! =] i can’t wait<3
well i have visited my sailor 3 times since he graduated in march! i actually just saw him this weekend! big things have been happening, i decided that i am moving closer to him in the summer with my friend! just signed the lease this week! i am super excited and so is he! it makes me so happy to see how excited he is for me to be moving closer to him. the look on his face every time we talk about it and how he says he’s so excited just melts my heart!
i feel like we have gotten even closer since he has been gone, which i thought was impossible because of how close we are..but out love and relationship gets stronger everyday. leaving him never gets any easier.. but knowing i will be near him soon helps! i know that i wont be able to see him everyday, but just being closer and being able to see him when he can will be great! we will only be miles apart, instead of states apart which makes me feel better.. i just want to be closer to him as much as i can before he gets deployed. my family doesn’t seem so enthused about my move as i am, except for my mom.. she has been so supportive. i know my dad and my aunt are just going to miss me a lot, but i wish they could just be a little more supportive… im not happy without my boyfriend i just wish they would understand that this is important to me and what i want to do. im 22 years old, and i am in love with a man in the navy… me moving is bound to happen.
he is my bestfriend and i don’t know what i would do without him. tomorrow (well technically today) will be our 7 years… 7 years ago he asked me out! it is so crazy to think about. we have had our fair share of ups and downs, but being together is the most important thing. we’ve made it through so much, and a lot of changes have happened this year with him joining the navy.. but he is my one and only. he is the man i want to marry and i couldn’t picture marrying anyone else.
we’ve been talking about marriage a lot lately! it’s actually pretty exciting. last time i visited him, we were in the mall and passed a lot of jewelry stores… he said ” i don’t even know your ring size” so i joked about going to find out one day.. and he said “you seriously should”.. so i did! and he’s been asking what kind of rings i like… and we’ve just talked about marriage. it is something we both want. he tells me to be patient all the time… “he wants to do it right” & “give me the ring i deserve”. he is such a sweetheart i am so lucky and thankful that he is mine and in my life. i am so excited about our future! i can’t wait to marry him and have his babies :) we talk about it all the time, he’s excited too which makes me happy that we both want the same things. & we saw a wedding on the beach this weekend and started talking about wedding plans and what we would want. ahhh<3
i know navy life is hard, its hard for them, its hard for us.. but it is worth it in the end. he is going to have a bright future and i will be by his side supporting him the whole way. he’s the love of my life and i am so proud of him! <3
being able to talk to him everyday makes me soooooo happy! i loveeee having the communication back! i missed him so much it is nice to be able to talk on a regulalr basis again! the weather is gorgeous and i get to talk to my boyfriend, life is good! now if school could just be over & i move close to him life would be perfect! but hey, at least it is already mid march! ::thinking positive::
im going to visit him in 9 days! super excited =]
love you baby! missing you like crazy! aeb, always & forever <3
Friday i got to see him!!! he is so fricken sexy. as always.. but i could not take my eyes off him. i missed him so much! i can’t tell you how many times i kissed him and told him how much i loved him. after graduation we went into chicago for lunch and walked around. then we went back to the hotel to hang out. i didn’t get any alone time because we were with his mom and brother =[ .. kinda upsetting. it would have been nice just to have time to ourselves. but yeah that didn’t happen. but he had to be back at base 7-7:30 because he had an early flight. we met up with him at the airport before 2am to spend the day with him. his flight wasn’t until noon. so i soaked up all the time with him. it was so hard to let him go again!!! i was so upset. but we decided that i will be visiting him in less than two weeks!!!! so that really helps keep me going i can’t wait!
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhi just had a hour long phone call with him =] =] =] words cannot describe how i am feeling right now. im almost speechless i am so happy. this week has been so stressful and i was just wishing he was here to get me through it… so im so happy i finally got to talk to him!
he sounded exhausted but happy at the same time. he said everyone has been sick… and he’s been up since sunday so its been hard to not fall asleep. i found out this week i have an opportunity to move to his A school.. i got to tell him the news, he was excited just said i have to finish school if i come. =] i feel bad leaving my family, but it is just like i am transferring to a different school.. i know i will be a much happier person if i do this. time is precious, i want to see him as much as possible yanno?
well anyways. im on cloud nine. i can’t wipe this smile off my face. he wrote on my facebook wall after he called… i wish i had my reaction taped, it was absolutely priceless. i was surprised! but anyways, i see him friday and i could not be more excited!! im looking forward to a good night sleep tonight & can’t wait til friday!!!!=]
well i got a bunch more letters! always make my day better! i love being reminded how excited he is to start our lives together and start a family! i just hope the navy doesnt prolong this all =[ i can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him!!!.. im glad to hear he is doing well and is healthy. i can’t wait to see him. i’ll be getting ready to go see him in about two weeks! yay yay! he did give some upsetting news.. they are learning about deployment and stuff.. he’ll be gone about 8 mts at a time over the four years after A school =/ well we did talked about it before he left, it just hurt to see him confirm it.. i mean i know i shouldnt complain i know some people are gone much longer than that.. but it is still a fricken long ass time! =[ …not fair.
anyways, trying to be more happy than sad. i got letters, he loves me, and i get to see him soon thats all that matters!
soo just found out that a recruit died of pneumonia this week… my boyfriends mom said she found out on the navy mom forum that someone died and one or two got discharged because they had it. i looked it up and it did happen… like what the fucccckkk. the week he left some kid died after he passed out now this?! pray everyone stays healthy please!! stressed! no news is good news…
total of 3 envelopes this week! 5 more letters! so good hearing from him, it always gives me a little boost. i was really down in the dumps the past few days… so it deff helped hearing from him. i can’t wait for bootcamp to just be over and have some communication again… and he told me when he gets to A school i will be allowed to come visit weekends, and if he gets it approved he can stay overnight eventually =] ..he’s going through “hell week” right now.. i hope everything is going well!! im just getting really anxious i want it to be his graduation day so bad! im going crazyyy. tomorrow is 3 weeks!! the number of days is getting more bearable to look at =]
Well for starters, this week started off horrible. I had a Biology test and my alarm didn’t go off. Luckily my professor is awesome and didn’t care and just let me take it. my day all changed when i got home and got the mail… totally not expecting anything… and found another letter from andy! ah! so that turned my day around =] anddd booked flight and hotel to go see him graduate! so excited, getting closerrrrr!! … but today is valentines day.. oh yippie. my man is away and i can’t even talk to him.. i was kinda bummed at first, but its okay because when you are truely in love with someone you don’t need one day to show your love for one another, you do it everyday… so today is just another day. we have a lifetime to look forward to. but if you do get to spend your valentines day with the one you love consider yourself lucky… but just know that the next time i see my boyfriend… it will be better than all of your valentine days. ;)
So this has been hands down the best week I’ve has since he left. I got to talk to him for half hour on Monday, and then 3 days later I get 6 more letters! He is the fricken bestttt! I miss him so muchh! It feels so good hearing from him and knowing how everything is going. I just want this all to be over, I want to be back in his arms where we should be. He said that he knew it was going to be hard being away from me, but he didn’t know it was going to be this hard. He made my day when we wrote in one of the letters “Im so excited to start our lives together” … me too baby! I can’t fricken wait! It’s nice to know he is missing me just as much as I am missing him. I can’t wait to see him!!!!!! I love how he can make me the happiest girl ever and his miles away<3
this is the worst feeling ever. you really don’t know the meaning of missing someone until your forced to be apart for awhile, and there is nothing you can do about it. im so happy i got to talk to him earlier this week, but it definitely made me miss him a thousand times more! i can deal with not seeing him every single day, but this whole not talking at all thing is breaking my heart. i hate feeling sad, i am not a sad person! i love being happy, but it is so hard to be when the person who makes you the happiest is away. i feel like i miss him more and more as each second passes. i know i loved him before, but this whole experience is making my love for him even stronger. i never knew it was possible to love so much. he means EVERYTHING to me, without him here i just feel so lost. i can’t wait to be in his arms again and so excited for our future together. until then, i’ll be here waiting<3
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I GOT TO TALK TO HIM!!!!!!!!!!!! of course it was during my night class, i ran out of the room shaking and tearing up with excitment!! i was so happy to hear his voice, it feels like FOREVER since we’ve talked. but we got to talk for a half hour! made me so happy but a million times more emotional. I MISS HIM SO MUCHHHHHHH!!!
my question is about after navy bootcamp graduation… How long do you get to spend with your sailor? i know some of them are “grad and go”, but if they are not do you get one day to see them or the whole weekend? or does it really all depend on when the fly off to A school?
im going bananas! we’ve been dating for over 6 1/2 years… i miss him so much =[ i just hope i get to spend some time together
I GOT LETTERS FROM HIM TODAYYYYYY!!! a total of 6! i can’t even begin to explain how good it feels to finally hear from him. My heart broke when he didn’t receive them yet and the first mail call he didn’t get anything he said you don’t know how hard it is to see everyone else get letters and not get one. but he finally got all of mine =]] I have been writing everyday! It is just so good hearing from him, i was really starting to go insaneeee. ahhh im so happy =]]] he had to get his wisdom teeth out, but he got chosen to be a section leader at graduation =] he also said he was told that he gets to come home after bootcamp, but has to confirm it with his recruit division leader and would let me know!. so ahhhhh! that just made my dayy. i never cried so much with “happy tears” today was awesome.
Well the day I’ve been dreading for months has arrived. He is on his way to bootcamp :( I got to see him one last time wednesday. That was one of the hardest things ever. It made is easier with him still having his phone… I could still talk to him. However, his flight got cancelled today because it’s snowing in Chicago! I found out it was gonna snow before he did, I told him and within 5or 10 minutes he told me it was cancelled. Bitter sweet.. I can still talk to him on his phone but just adds another day of not seeing him. I have never been so upset. He is the love of my life and not hearing his voice for 2 months breaks my heart to pieces. He left the sweetest letter in my room it made me cry and laugh, he’s the best. That’s enough for now I’m getting bummed out again. :’(
I Love you babe. aeb
