Military Talk: What I’ve Learned In One Year of Military Life

One Year.jpg

Wow! I really cannot believe my love has been in the US Air Force for one year!! I can still remember the day he left like it happened yesterday. That day I was filled with so many questions. Will we last? What am I going to do if I can’t talk to him? Is this going to be too hard for me? 

I’m here to tell my younger self, that yes you CAN do it! Being long distance is tough. It requires a whole lot of effort, and a whole lot of trust.

Military Talk: Our Christmas Holiday, 2016

holiday-vacay-pintThis past Christmas was our 3rd Christmas spent together. But this year was definitely the most difficult. He had just gotten home on December 23rd, and it was a constant struggle finding time for just ourselves. We were able to celebrate Christmas and his birthday (NYE) together and that was really important for me. He wasn’t able to come home in time for my birthday (Dec. 14) but being able to spend time with him for 11 days definitely made up for that.

Military Talk: Saving Up To Visit

The time is finally here! You get to travel many, many miles to see your loved one. The best part? Getting off that plane knowing you’re in the same city again. The worst part? How much money it costs to see your significant other. It’s not easy being in a long distance relationship, and I think this is the part I struggle with the most. The fact that seeing him relies heavily on how much money we can save. Continue reading

Behind The Card: Pt. 6

This card was originally created for my boyfriend (no surprise there, am I right!?!). I wanted to be supportive and be proud of him for passing one of his exams. However, for some reason this card NEVER got delivered to him. It was completely filled with all of these uplifting words, and he never got to read those and feel that encouragement. It kind of made me sad when I found that out. Continue reading

Behind The Card: Pt. 4

This was my very first long distance card!! Before heading off to boot camp, my boyfriend moved home leaving us 45 minutes away. It was kind of a warm up for this whole long distance thing. I was starting to feel the effects of the distance. I  made this to let him know I was struggling. Before he left, he was only 15 minutes away from me. He was 5 minutes away from my work and I would always go over after my shift. So we were spending a lot of time together each week. That’s probably why this process was more difficult, but I was still happy that he was in the same state as me. Continue reading
