Home Again, Home Again

Leaving Jacksonville yesterday was hard. Harder than I thought it would be. I was only there for 9 days, but it felt like I had been there forever. I enjoyed being 10 minutes from Andrew at any given point in the day (that never happens for us on a usual basis) and getting to eat dinner with him every night. It was just.....wonderful.

Andrew has developed a really funny sense of humor over the last three years that I have known him. He had me cracking up so many times. I had to right down all the things that we thought were funny just so I wouldn't forget them! Also, he is now a squad leader which is great, but it is A LOT more responsibility then he has ever had before. He has also started to develop this more serious side of him, which I sometimes hate. I love when he is happy and not stressed or worried all the time. A couple of days were a little rocky. He was trying to adjust to everything new being thrown at him, while here I am just wanting to spend every second I could with him....and it was hard on both of us. Who ever said love takes work was right! We finally talked about some stuff and everything is so much better. He actually started laughing again. Just hearing that sound makes me smile, because I love when he is happy! His happiness makes me happy! Andrew also told me when he is set to deploy again.....UGH. I can't say that I'm surprised but I really don't wanna go through this again. I'm gonna deal with it, but I'm allowed to pout a little now, right?

Anyways, that was a little about my week. I had a great time overall. I got to meet some girls who I already felt like I knew (and a couple of their dogs) so I wasn't bored sitting in my hotel room all week. I really love Jacksonville. I know it can be boring and there isn't a whole lot to do, but you make it what it is, and if Andrew is there and a lot of girls who I absolutely adore are there, I'm pretty sure I could make it a great place to live!


  1. glad you enjoyed yourself! :)

  2. I understand how you feel one hundred percent. I went through the same stuff with John and we just moved from Jacksonville to California. BIG CHANGE. I lived in jville for over a year and although there isn't a lot to do and not much opportunity unless you're in the military, if you have great friends, it is definitely a great place to live. And you're definitely allowed to pout about the deployment. I am doing the same thing because John wasn't supposed to deploy again until 2011 but you know how that goes. keep your head up girl and I'm glad you got to see your love!
