I like to think of myself as a pretty independent person, until it comes to how I act when I'm around my S.O. I couldn't ever be happier in a relationship. I finally found a man who treats me like I'm a literal princess, and also makes me sandwiches (which is why I keep him). When I'm with him I feel like I'm on top of the world. It's nice to have someone do things for you even when you don't ask them, like when you can't reach things on the top shelf. Two years into the relationship and I am honestly so excited to get to marry this young man. Not only is he my best friend, but he's my personal chef too.
Whenever he used to talk about the military or joining it I thought it was no big deal, until it became a reality. I thought that it was just a joke, something that you'd think about for your future but you'd just rather get a 9-5 job and spend the rest of the day cuddling on the couch. When Jeremy left for BMT (Basic Military Training) my heart sunk. It honestly felt like it was the end of the world at that point. Getting through that made me feel like I could take on the whole entire world that deployment & tours looked so easy.
Knowing now that whenever I get the chance to see him again, no one can ever compare. No one is him. I can find new friends and I can go dating around too. But no one in this whole entire planet can fill his shoes. Literally not one single person. Our relationship isn't the easiest, it's honestly such a huge amount of work somedays (mostly when I miss him and just want to stay and bed and watch movies together, and he tells me no). But I wouldn't ever trade this man for the world. I would literally do anything to be able to see him again, but I know that when I do it's going to be the best thing on this whole entire planet.
The amount of posts that I've seen recently about girls/women speaking out about pads/tampons/period products is INSANE! It's so amazing that women are not ashamed of who they are. I mean lets be honest here, without periods- NO ONE WOULD BE HERE!
We feel so ashamed that we hide out tampons/pads in our back pockets and running to the bathroom to change them. We have to be as quiet as possible to make sure no one in the bathroom knows we're on our periods. Yet everyone in there has them too! We even feel so embarrassed just to talk to our gynecologist about our women problems, when they're here to help us!
The issue around the world right now, is that girls/women do not have access to period products. This shouldn't be a thing, every person should have access to sanitary products.
This is L. has partnered with 4,000 female entrepreneurs and has making over 200 MILLION health products available just for girls around the world! It's INSANE! Just thinking about the fact that there's even MORE people who need access to these products literally breaks my heart.
L. pads are made with organic cotton, is chlorine bleaching free, hypoallergenic (WOOHOOO!) and there's no synthetic pesticides. It's so amazing to see that there's a company out there that are actually working on keeping our areas healthy & safe. It's something that ALL companies should do.
I'm a huge fan of chicken nuggets, and enthusiastically excited about what God as in store for my life. My other half is currently in the Air Force, so a lot of blog posts will be about the military as of right now.
