One Year Ago Today

I can't believe that a year ago today I was balling my eyes out because my fiance had left been picked up by his recruiter at 4:30AM. I really couldn't sleep at all that night . We had spent the whole day together on Sunday. That same Saturday before he left, we had his going away party. I decided to spend his last night in NJ with him. I really didn't get a lot of sleep I just kept looking at him, crying, & hugging him. Then around 4AM his alarm turns on & all I can think is "No it's time for him to get ready, I can't take this feeling. I don't want to be without my fiance for 3 months......" His family is all awake by this time time too. Even his best friend Andy came by to say "see you later". At exactly 4:30AM his recruiter pulled up to the house after I cried in his arms, hugged him, told him I loved him, & that I would miss him; off he went to embark on his new journey to becoming a US Marine @ Parris Island, SC where many of his fellow brothers in arms have gone through the same ordeal as he was about to start.

How time flies, those 3 months were one of the hardest moments I ever went through in my life but I can truly say it made me appreciate my husband more, it helped strengthen our relationship, & it helped me to never take him for granted.

I love you Mr. Camacho you are truly the best thing to ever happen to me!!!!


  1. Awwww I remember when my husband left too (over 4 years ago!) and I'm so glad that you are so proud of him! =)
