Together forever, and never apart; maybe in distance.... but never in heart ♥
A little about me:
I'm 18, and the proud girlfriend of a Nuke. We have been together over a year and a half, two years in October! I love him to death and he is my best friend<3 He was a part of the celebratory centennial PIR on 07/01/11. He is now in Goose Creek, South Carolina and I miss him dearly but am incredibly proud of what he is doing.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was concerned or afraid
The Navy offers opportunities that...
Absence really does make the heart grow fonder and tough times bring people together. You realize how much you truly love a person when you are forced to be without them for awhile.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
Yeah, I'm glad BC is over too! Lack of sleep and altering ones sleep habits is difficult at first, but you eventually do get use to it...Enjoying my sailor while he's home, because this week will slip away entirely to quickly---before, I know it, he will be off to Washington state...ugh!

We're flying into Milwaukee and renting a car. My sister lives in Hoffman Estates (we grew up in Franklin Park). I have rooms reserved at the Ramada, but would much rather stay at the Residence Inn and will keep calling them to see if they get any cancellations for a 2 bedroom suite. Failing that, I might take 2 separate rooms there. Either that, or we might switch to Springhill Suites. I picked the Ramada because of the Meet & Greet, but we'll have a car so it doesn't matter.
