"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.

I just wanted you to know that its blogs like this that give soldiers like us hope that the women and ladies we love will hold on to us while we are gone. I admire your dedication and commitment, and hope that my wife/girlfriend will be just as faithful while I am deployed. Thank you!
Thanks… you don’t know how much that means to me! The deployments been really hard physically/emotionally, I won’t lie but I’ve been so proud to stay I have a soldier fighting for our country. Most of the guys in his platoon had girls back home cheating/stealing from them. I hope they go to hell. If you find the right girl, you treat her right and you guys love each other you should have no problem! good luck.
I opened your mail today and there was a letter that said "your military obligation is completed, congratulations". I want to frame it for the first great accomplishment we conquered as a couple. Or burn it so we can forget the devastation.
I love reading this blog.
Your relationship gives me hope that there is still true love out there and good men out there as well.
I'm so happy for you both and wish you a lifetime of happiness :).
Hang in there, It's almost over!
Thanks for the support! You will find your prince charming someday too I’m sure xo

See, our relationship is kind of confusing. We dated in ‘06 (I was a little baby, almost a senior in high school…Justin was 23….but we shouldn’t go there…) then fell back in each other’s arms last Spring when we realized the true love we had. It was funny how it happened. I was in a serious relationship with a complete loser for 3 years and we got into a fight because he made me walk home from a party the day before (such a special dude), therefore I wasn’t with him this particular night. I was on Facebook and Justin messages me, mind you, I haven’t talked to him in almost 4 years. The relationship started with talking about my happiness or lack thereof. It ended with Justin saying, “you know we are going to be together in the end, yea?” and I said, “yeah… I know”. Needless to say, it was a pretty powerful conversation for Facebook. I ended up breaking with my boyfriend the next day with no real explanation, I just knew it needed to be done. I deserved better and Justin was just that. Things sped up fast due to know that he was going to leave for a year on August 2nd for the deployment. We got engaged in a month and then married in about 7 months. I had no idea what I was getting myself into with this deployment, I had never dated anyone in the military before and I thought it would never happen to me. Most people definitely questioned our relationship moving along so fast but let me explain this way… I used to ask the question to my mom when I was little, “how will I know when I want to marry someone?” and she used to say, “when you know, you know”. Welp, I knew. This deployment has taken so much out on me physically and emotionally, but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger right? I knew I had to wait for him. He was the one. We are the perfect match and we’ll get our fairy tale “happily ever after” this summer when he comes home. I’m so lucky to be able to spend the rest of my life with somebody so caring, so handsome, so strong, so loyal, so brilliant and so funny. (There’s way more things I could say, but this is getting long…) Anyways.. Today is our one year “official” dating anniversary.
Happy Anniversary Justin, I took a huge leap of faith for you and it was the best decision of my life. I love you more than words could say. Come home soon darling.
I was a freshman at the University of Maine on September 11, 2001. I had just returned from class when the creepy kid from down the hall told me I should check the news. Apparently some idiot in a plane crashed into one of the Trade Towers in New York.
