RIP to the seven marines who passed away in training due to a mortar explosion. My heart aches for the families, I can’t even imagine what they are going through right now. Tradegies like these just go to show how precious life really is and that we must not take anything for granted.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the familes who lost a loved one<3
only one more year of being an undergraduate and planning on furthuring my education to get my masters. yikes! This is scary stuff but also exciting.
I’m at a crossroads right now and I need to figure out exactly what it is I want to do.
I am really interested in working with children and families in either a school or community setting. Maybe even work for a youth organization or become a school psychologist. But after I graduate next year there are two options I need to figure out:
Move in with Travis after graduation and travel from one place to another …or go on to more schooling for a few more years then settle down. ( I know the second option sounds more reasonable). But I want to make sure I am happy with whatever decision I choose and make sure it’s the right one. What makes this more manageable is Travis is such a good support system and will accept whatever path I choose to go down, that’s why I love him so much. & he knows I would do the same for him<3
I can’t believe on April 2nd it will be a year since my boyfriend left for bootcamp. Soon I will be preparing myself mentally and emotionally for my boyfriend’s first deployment. I remember the exact day/moment my boyfriend told me he was deploying. When he called me and told me those dreaded words everything in my life seemed to stop. Eventhough I knew I would eventually have to prepare myself for him to delpoy I just wasn’t ready.
Recently i’ve been wishing I already lived on a base with Travis and that I could surround myself with people that actually understood what I was going through. It’s extremely hard when it seems like you are going through this by yourself.
It’s already been three months since I last seen him and sometimes my emotions get the best of me. But the good news is Travis is coming home in three weeks for his pre-deployment leave! It’s really hard to control my excitement just thinking about him coming home.
I’ll keep you all updated on my journey alongside a United States Marine.
Keep you head up, keep you heart strong.
I need to start coming on here more.
I am thinking about blogging again especially about the events going on throughout this year. This year is definately going to be a challenge and writing has always helped me through the tough times. So I will warn all my followers now that my posts will most likely be military/deployment related so I hope you don’t mind!
I am so thankful that I was able to spend the last week of 2012 with my boyfriend and was able to welcome the new year with him as well.
The last time I seen my boyfriend was october 28th, after patiently waiting he finally gave me a surprise visit the morning after christmas and it was the best feeling ever. He also surprised me with a promise ring<3.
We had such a fun filled week together and it could not have been any better. We were able to reunite with his friend that had just returned home from afghanistan and we also got to have date night and go cosmic bowling. It was such a fun experience and definately created life long memories.
We ate at Tokoyo Steakhouse and it was an interesting experience watching our chef cook right in front of us. Then we went cosmic bowling and realized that we all suck at bowling lol
Then on New Year’s Eve Travis and I made frozen fruit daquiris and hung out with his friends. Then we attended a little house party which wasn’t the greatest but I was just thankful I was able to welcome the new year with my boyfriend because I do not know when we will see each other again. Which is why I am so scared to see what the year 2013 holds. 2013 is going to be a lot like 2012 with goodbyes and new challenges. Biggest challenge of 2013 is going to be making it through my bfs 7-9month deployment. It is definately not going to be easy but when I see him once again it will be all worth it. The few hours I spend with him are worth the thousand hours I spend without him. & that’s absolutely true because eventhough I was only able to spend a week with him over winter break that week was so worth it. I enjoyed every minute of it. The hardest part was ending the week with another goodbye and watching you walk through those airport doors. But it’s not a goodbye, its a see ya later. love you more than anything babe<3
Deadliest Elementary School Shooting in America. Hearing about this awful tragedy makes me sick to my stomach. I just can’t put it into words. How can someone be so heartless?And to hear that the majority of the souls lost today were children.
First grade teacher in the elementary school locked her class in the bathroom and reassured the children with positive words. One child announced ” I just want christmas, I don’t want to die”. So heartbreaking to hear and watch the news right now.
For the past three years, I have dedicated my time to working in a preschool classroom. This story definately hits home.
My deepest condolences go out to all the friends and families affected by this tragedy<3

What better way to spoil yourself with a new necklace and Stella & Dot will donate a gift to active duty members, family veterans, military wives and their daughters. This is a great way to give back to the badass women of the military :)
