Two months ago, I packed my entire life up into my Honda Civic and drove across the country to finally close this damn distance between Taylor and I. I insisted to my mom, who came along for the ride so I wouldn’t get mugged or kidnapped, that I wanted to drive the entire way. I savored every mile that got me closer to him.
To be honest, I mostly do these posts for my future self. I’ve always treated this site like a journal, in a sense, so I can look back years from now and see my own growth as well… and I tend to wash my phone in the washing machine and drop it in the toilet a lot so this is also my way of preserving pictures!
When I first got into an LDR, I looked at all the downfalls. But over the past year of being a Navy girlfriend I have come to find many reasons why I actually like this kind of lifestyle. Now, I’m not saying I want this kind of relationship forever because…well…no. I couldn’t do this forever. But there are some bright sides to this type of love.
