I'm in love with my sailor. We've been together for 7 months now and it's been the best time of my life. I'm so very proud of him for taking this step to doing what he's always wanted to do. I have more respect for him that I have for people I've known my entire life. I'm always gonna be here to support him. He's my forever. I LOVE YOU BRADLEE! <3 :)
I work at a health and wellness spa. I like my job, but I'm beginning to think about changing my occupation. I just don't want to make any changes until I know where we will be when he's stationed and have more of a plan. I like to crochet. I sing constantly. I love bright colors. I'm one of the most honest people you will meet. I get along with everyone. I'm very random at times and I love to take pictures. :)
I have 3 sisters and 1 brother. I've recently gained 4 sisters and a brother, from Brad's side of the family of course. I now also have a second amazing mom and dad. Most of my time has been spent with them since he has been gone. We have the most amazing and supportive family and friends and I wouldn't trade them for the world. I'm super excited to see what the future holds for us!
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?

Yes, i did get a call :) i took half the day off at my other job, so there would be NO interruptions haha. i work at an athletic club, and they were totally understanding! he sounded sooo good & so happy. he's having fun too. I was by myself at home so i got him to myself, but i felt really awful that he didnt call his mom, and so i had to fill her in. she was totally bummed. i was so bummed when we had to get off the phone. i was in too good of a mood to hang up already!
