learn to communicate with each other. being in the same city as them doesn't always mean you will see them every day so it is important to understand (to the best of your power) the way the other person is feeling :)
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
Hey Ellie! I couldn't find you on Facebook! But it might be alil easier for you to add me lol I am pretty much the only Devyn Corren (That's my first and middle name..should be all you need lol)...But I have some questions for you about being in Pensacola lol...I rarely get on here anymore for lack of time, but I get facebook on my phone lol
Jacksonville, that's exciting! Things are going very well over in VA, I'm nannying for a navy family and couldn't have asked for a better family. Its definitely going to be hard to leave at the end of the summer when I return to WI to finish up my internship. How are you liking the married life?! Are you working or waiting to move?
Hello Ellie, sorry I haven't been on here for a while. We've actually had a change up in our schedule and we're now in VA. I hope everything is going well in P-Cola, your wedding pictures are beautiful! Have a good summer!
Hi Ellie, I just saw your post to me..My son was in a room in phase one with a guy whose last name began with H i think. I know he likes him alot and wished they could be roomates when they moved. He is now in a room with 2 other people, one was already there and the other guy just phased up when he did and his last name begins with a G (he is from 802). Thankfully he is a great guy and apparently the other guy is too. My son was concerned about who he would get..lol..He likes to keep everything just so and his new roomates are the same way..He said alot of guys don't care and that makes life miserable for all involved...Your pictures are beautiful and you two look so Happy !!!
