The Story Of Us-It's Love.

I'll make it a quick one..promise. We met on a whim. He had just come back from 1 yr. in Iraq & I was trying to get out of 7 years of bad luck. We were straight out of bad relationships. Instant besties. Talk on the phone for until dawn, hang out for hours, and laugh like it's no ones business. Two months later he left to Korea for 1 yr. After he came back we dated for a year, long distance only seeing each other one weekend a month. After the year of long distance dating we moved in together. Married 4 months later. I would've married him on day 2, which I told him. No regrets. One year later he left to Afghanistan.
One year later he came back. Our daughter holding the flag while we wait for the plane to make it's way to our city!



It's here!


He's back :o)


1 year later (5 hours ago)...he's gone again. Back to Afghanistan.

I miss him so much. My heart is breaking. But when it's real true love you do what you have to. In my case I wait. I have 2 years of waiting under my belt so far. I would wait a lifetime and beyond. If It's In God's Will.

What a love story...your daughter's beautiful. You're right...when you know, you know. This is how I felt about my husband!

I give you so much credit for holding it together with your husband gone so much. My brother-in-law was in the military for 20 years and I know how hard it was on my sister. Thank God for men and women like your husband who make the sacrifice to go to Afghanistan and thank you to the spouses who are left to take care of things at home.

You have a beautiful family.

Please visit my blog today...not for me, but for my sister. I've provided a link for everyone for her submission to the Progessive Help Flo contest. May be you'll vote for her? Please tell everyone you know about her submission.

you're a stronger woman than i am, that's for sure. thanks for the comments and the mutual turquoise love!

This is too sweet! I've often thought that it takes a special person to have a military spouse. You often hear of what the not so nice spouses have done while the military spouse is away...thanks so much for sharing the positive side! I'll pray for his safety!

This brings back memories. I know exactly how you feel. Although my relationship didn't work out (we were young), I would do it all over again (wait for him). It's amazing that they have the courage to put themselves out there on the frontline to keep us safe. I'm very appreciative to your husband and everyone else who serve for our country. It take a BIG person to do so.

I'll keep him and you and you "CUTE" little girl in my prayers.
Take care...

Adrianna, I didn't know that you are a military wife!! I guess I missed that detail somehow.

My thanks to your husband for his service. And to you my friend, thank you as well for being a supportive wife. Thank you for the sacrifices that YOU make for our country.

I already adored you and your blog... who knew I could like you even more?

Beautiful photos by the way.

jennifer said...

And Adrianna? You are in my prayers. I can't imagine how tough it must be to see him leave again.

Struggler said...

Wow, what a romantic story. Does the practice you've had make the waiting any easier? I hope you've found some "tools" for coping, at least.

thedomesticfringe said...

It must be hard to wait. The rest of us appreciate what he does on our behalf and the behalf of our country. We appreciate you too for being willing to make the sacrifice of waiting, so thank you.

Your daughter is super cute!

True love story =) You must be strong to live apart from your husband for a year at a time, at least you have your children while he's away =)

~Dana said...

I am so grateful to the soldiers who serve our country. Thank you to both of you.

Redesign Diva said...

This post makes me sad and happy all at the same time. So sad that you have to be apart but so happy that you've found someone that you are so in love with. I know how hard it is and I appreciate your sacrifices for this country. I'm thinking positive thoughts that he'll be back home in no time!

P.S. - Your daughter is beautiful.

Symone's Mommy said...

Wow! True love is worth waiting for. I hope to be as lucky in my future. I know you miss him. Blog world will have to keep you busy, huh? You have just motivated me to keep my blog updated...just to stay in touch :)

Mary Ellen said...

Oh my goodness! I'm sitting in Starbucks with tears in my eyes! I usually have to go to the Hallmark for a good cry! How lucky he is to have his two beautiful girls to keep the home fires burning! Thanks for telling your love story!

PS- I really love your blog!

Sending you warm thoughts and hugs today!

Fran said...

God bless you and your family. Your family is doing our country proud. My brother deploys in 2 weeks to Afghanistan. He's already done 2 depolyments to Iraq. I can't imagine having a husband that deploys...I admire all of your strength and courage!

micah @ the yellow front door said...

I honestly have no idea how you do it, I am in awe of what you and your husband sacrifice for the rest of us! I hope the waiting goes by quickly for you. Your daughter is beautiful!

Megan Biram said...

Hang in there! It's just started for me. My husband is in the Air Force. Love is totally worth is.

Rebecca@Harmony and Home said...

Adrianna, I just adore your writing. It is so honest and raw. It really speaks to my heart. And, what you have to endure while your husband is away I'm sure is very hard and painful. I'm going through a separation from my husband of 20 years and everyday is SO hard. He's the one leaving, so I have no choice, much like you. There is a blog called "Kind Over Matter" that is so inspirational. Check it out. Their posts lift me up when I'm having a bad day! Keep going, keep a smile on your face and God bless your husband and keep him safe from harm.

Oh man...wow...That shows the measure of your strength. I seroiously dont know what I would do. I could barely take my husband going on a business trip for 30 days! God bless him and your family. God has it all babe!

Laura said...

I grew up a Navy Brat and understand! I know it's hard on your family. His service is appreciated and in our house, service men and women are prayed for every day. He's in our prayers for his safe return!

Freckles Chick said...

Yours is a love story that will withstand the earthly challenges we are dealt. I can just feel it, as I can feel your incredible strength.

It's not the same thing I know, but when my husband and I did 1.5 yrs of long distance, my heart was broken only to be mended when I did see him. Then it'd break into even smaller pieces all over again when we were apart. But it told me that I'd wait till the end of time for him.

Hang in there! =]

OMG, this post is such a tear-jerker. I would do the same for my husband. God bless you and your family. Is this tour for another year? We'll try our best to keep you company while he's gone...hugs
