I hope that you and your husband have a very good time together :) I'm so happy for you! My brother leaves in September for Afghanistan, and he'll be gone for a year, so I'll soon enough be going through the same thing. Well, kinda the same thing. Brother and husband are quiet different ;)
Thank you! I’ll keep your brother in mind… I hope he stays safe! Send him lots of energy drinks and funny things in care packages. Although he’s not your husband, he still loves you and you need to be there for him 100%.
I don't know you or Justin, but I just had to tell you that the love that you two share inspires me. I was never sure if I truly believed in love, but reading your blogs gives me hope. I wish you guys a happy life together :)
That one comment sums up why we created this blog. Thank you! xo
I don't even know you and I have been following yours and Justin's blog for a while now and im SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED FOR YOUR LONG AWAITED REUNION WITH EACH OTHER!! I really do wish you the best of luck with everything and the most happiness I could ever wish for anyone :)
thank you thank you thank youuuuu. I pick him up in a matter of hours… somebody to pinch me! I might explode with happiness.
Your blog is so amazing. Congratulations to you and Justin, for your wedding. I hope you guys enjoy Texas as much as I do. Its an amazing place, and you two are an amazing couple.
PS. You're stunning! :)
What a nice thing to wake up to:) Thanks a lot. I can’t wait for Austin…I became obsessed with the city after visiting. Live music, warm weather, good shopping and outdoor activities everywhere? Love it.
Yours and your husbands blogs are amazing! You can truly feel the love between you two! I just wanted to say that your love story is beautiful and I'm so happy for the both of you that he is on his way home! I know how excited you must be! My husband and my brother are deployed together and will be back in October :) Just a few more months for me!
Aw thank you! Our love amazes me everyday. We are sooo lucky to have each other. & Yes I couldn’t be more excited for this week. Jumping in his arms will be the greatest reward after this long hard year. Stay strong for your husband and brother! Justin’s brother was over there as well. October is right around the corner! xo
i've just recently become an army girlfriend...he leaves for training in less than two weeks now. he'll be home in october & december for a short time, then shipped off to afghanistan in february for his second deployment for a year. it's funny because i've been following you for months before i even knew i would be in this situation...i can't even imagine not wasting my days with him anymore. how do you get through the months?
Make every moment count with him. Have as much fun as possible and take lots and lots of pictures (you’ll want each and every one of them). When he leaves, keep yourself very busy, this is KEY. Use the time he’s away to better yourself. For example, I finished my college degree and tried to perfect my body by working out. Keep your friends close. Go out with them as much as you can. You’ll never be able to have girl time like you will during a deployment so enjoy it. You’ll miss him and at times it will be really really hard, but just remember that you need to be strong for him. Also, set small goals. Never look at the whole picture because you’ll drown yourself in your thoughts of him being gone from you for a whole year. Don’t think about the end, just think about the next time you’ll be able to look him in the eyes and kiss him.
Trust me, if you love him, it’ll be worth it. A year is long but in the grand scheme of things, it’s nothing.
for the day that I can jump into your arms and have you say to me “we did it” with the biggest smile on your face. Teary kisses, emotional hugs and the heaviest weight being lifted off of our shoulders. This is what I’ve lived for the past year. I’ve dreamt about our reunion every day, every hour, every minute and every night. I’ve cried myself to sleep with unforgiving amounts of depression and separation anxiety in my body. I sit and wonder what life will be like knowing that you aren’t ever going to have to leave me again. We won’t have to hold each other close, afraid of the minutes being lost before our eyes. This is it, we have forever together. This is our life now.
"I know we keep saying it, but it remains so true. I’m so ready for this to be over. I’ve spent enough time away from you and now I just want to spend all my time with you. We’ve done such an amazing job and I’m so proud of us. But really, I wish we never had to do this.
I’ve learned so much about you though. I’ve learned how strong, patient, and faithful you are. I’ve learned everything I need to know, that I made the 100% absolutely correct decision about wanting to marry you. I don’t regret it for a second.
