New Beginnings.

It’s all started September 28, 2018 when my girlfriend( now wife) joined the Navy. Her shipped out date was set for February 13, 2018. We still had a few months left to enjoy each other. I was so excited for her. But ultimately PROUD!

Our last hug.

It has only been five days since she has left to boot camp and honestly it’s the hardest thing I think her and i have ever been through. I had no idea what to expect. It’s only been five days, FIVE DAYS(going a bit crazy here) and I miss her like crazy. I already knew that she wouldn’t been able to call me or text, but only write me letters. I’m thinking to myself well maybe it would be easier because I won’t hear her voice and cry, but nope! No matter what it’s hard.  I’m just waiting for her first letter with so much anticipation. I have no idea what to do with myself. I figured I would write a blog since it will help me kill time, maybe help me be less lonely with my thoughts and share my experience. I give couples that have gone through since so much props because this isn’t easy. This isn’t a new job for her, it’s a whole new life. A whole new life that I would also have to get used to. I know this is what she wanted for herself and I for stability and a better life.

The life that her and I have built together in the last 4 years has been pretty great and this is just another chapter in our lives. I can’t wait to share more of this journey with you guys. Let’s see what the next couple of weeks hold.

I miss you, my love.
