Girl is available.
Boy likes girl.
Girl likes boy.

Girl says yes.

I'm that girl, welcome to my blog.

Boy comes home for leave

Boy proposes to girl.
Girl says yes.
Boy leaves for training.
Girl misses Boy.
Boy misses Girl.
Boy comes home for leave.

2 weeks. That's all we get. After days... weeks... months... of training and another 400 days of separation quickly approaching... 2 weeks together.

We're learning to make the most of the times we have together. To laugh and have fun and make memories. We're learning not to be sad... not to argue... not to cry (well I'M learning not to cry).

2 weeks.

We have 2 weeks to make a year's worth of memories.

Make plans for what you'll do when he gets home. Buy voice recorders (one for each you) so while he's gone you two can record little "voice mail" and then send them back and forth to each other. Nothing was more comforting than falling asleep to the sound of Darrin's voice ....even if I heard that tape a thousand times. Crying is ok and normal - but remember that there will be plenty of time to cry when he leaves. Fill these days with happy memories and fun times together. Cherish EVERY SECOND - every look, every touch, every kiss. Take lots of photos. You can do this hunny. You'll be surprised at your strength. Hugs
