Time to Go.

Today is an extremely hard day for me.  As I said last week, I was not really doing well with Tim deploying.  Luckily for me, I have family and friends that have really taken care of me lately.  I would truly be lost without them.  So thank you.

I know these next few months will go by quickly.  Dating and now engaged to someone in the military is not always easy.  It’s not fun to wave goodbye on long trips.  It’s not fun to wave goodbye on deployments but the time we have together makes everything worth it.

I truly appreciate everyone’s love and support.

Soaring high

  1. Text me if you need company. Just remember time flies (no pun intended).

  2. Take care of yourself, buy yourself a huge coffee with huger whip cream, and feel free to text me anytime you need to vent.

  3. I can’t imagine how hard it is to be so far from someone you love. I will be thinking about both of you!

  4. Coming from a military family, I understand how hard deployment can be. We are all here for you – though I know we can’t replace Tim 😉

  5. This made me tear up just because I know exactly how you’re feeling right now. I sobbed uncontrollably on my flight back to WI after seeing J off in Texas. It is very challenging-especially all the unknowns. But know that you have the support & that each day he’s away is one day closer to seeing him again. =) <3

    1. Then you move…and I still drive up to spend time with you hahahaha. You can’t escape the LOLZ.

  6. XOXOX staying strong with you in solidarity! DM/FB me if you ever want to chat or just be distracted! My ears are always open and I’d love to be there for you!

  7. I really feel for you. I wish there was something I could say or do to make the times you’re apart easier! For now, lots of twitter conversations and diner reviews will help a little, right? 🙂

  8. Virtual hugs! I can’t begin to imagine what you’re going through, but you have an online community ready to support you if you need it. Hoping your next few months can go by as quickly as possible.

  9. You are one touch chick, Hollie. I know you will get through this! Feel free to text me any time if you want to talk 🙂

  10. I have never left a comment (and I live in S. Jersey, Gloucester County, and love reading about the diners you go to – try Hollywood Cafe in Woodbury Heights some time!) but I am a working military wife and mother of three. My husband is an officer candidate in the NJ Army National Guard and he was gone for 2 1/2 months this year in basic training. It was difficult during that time, especially with the kids and work. But you will make it through!! As you probably know, basic training means hardly any phone and basically letters once a week from your significant other. I wrote my husband every single day, sometimes three times a day, and prayed constantly for him. Even though it was not a deployment and he was not in a combat zone, the separation was very difficult. But I learned so much about myself during the process – especially that the Lord supplies my strength whenever I need it!! Again, you will be fine and I will pray for you. This too shall pass 🙂

    1. That means a lot Melissa and thank you for stopping by! If you ever wanted to go to a diner or something, let me know!
