The Horrors of My Boyfriend’s 12-hour Shifts and How I Deal With Them

….I have a phone full of these kinds of messages. The only time Taylor has a chance to talk is late at night but I have to go to sleep early because I wake up early to go to work. I text Taylor for maybe 30 minutes in the morning and then I get the message that he is leaving for work.

Now, don’t get me wrong, he is very sweet in telling me to have a good day and reminding me that I’m loved everyday. I like that about him but I absolutely hate getting these messages because I know what it means: another 12 hours of not talking.

…Which really sucks. He’s my best friend and all this stuff in my life is happening and I’m sure he has a lot on his mind and I can’t tell him any of it because he is always gone. This frustrates me, infuriates me at times even. But over the past few months, I have learned a thing or two about dealing with this…

The Importance of a Beach

“We need to go to that beach one last time.”

For most people the beach is a place to lounge around at, sunbathe, swim in the ocean and spend a day with family or friends. For me and Taylor, I think Sullivan’s Island means a tad more.

The Solution To Your Airline Ticket Troubles

My best friend at work bought tickets the other day for her and her boyfriend to fly round- trip to Denver, Colorado…for $50 dollars each. That blew my mind. Fifty dollars?! Round trip?! That’s insane considering my flight tickets are always at least $200 a pop. So, I asked her how she did it.

“Look at this!! This could be something that could be really useful for you,” she texted me later that night.

As I found out, “this” was an app called Hopper, an absolutely beautiful thing for MILSOS.

Reasons Why You Should Be In A Military Relationship

One of my biggest missions in creating this blog was to bash the notion that long distance relationships or military relationships are bad or too hard. They aren’t. Plain and simple. Matter of fact, I recommend trying one at least once in life to see what that is like (though if you are already married I do not recommended…).

And here is why:

Airline Prices Got Your Wallet Feeling Skinny?

Air fare literally gives me anxiety. Every time I go to book a trip, I have to do some yoga breathing and cross my fingers and toes hoping that airline prices are in my budget range. For a long time I considered getting a credit card that rewarded with airline miles (still in consideration) but I have it good at the bank where I currently am so I am kind of eh about switching over.

Turning Twenty-Three in Charleston…in Pictures

kc-1

Twenty-three is such an eh age to turn. Not twenty-one anymore but not quite old enough to be a full on adult either. But as far as twenty-third birthdays go, I’d say I had the best.

Best 7 Places to Eat in Charleston, SC

Charleston has always been one of my favorite places even before I became the girlfriend of a sailor. I grew up in Chicago and have found a lot of the Windy City’s qualities in Charleston which makes it feel like home for me. All the history, the bars, King’s Street, the different kinds of people, having a big body of water nearby. It all feels very familiar.

And one of my favorite parts of Charleston is the food! While I have never lived there and don’t 100% know the area, I have been there enough times to throw out some good recommendations when asked.
