You see him up there ^^^? That’s the love of my life. Here’s our story :) We met 2 months before he left to Boot Camp. Just a random add on FB through a mutual friend I met 3 yrs ago in highschool. The attraction was not only mutual but very evident. We were looking for the same thing but I was too focused on getting my life together. A few days before leaving to boot, he asked me for my address and promised to write. Needless to say, I waited days for a letter that never came. I got on FB and saw his mom post on his wall “Mikey lost his address book. Write him to this address”. It took me about a week to get the courage to write him. I got a response within a few days. By the 3rd letter, we had already claimed one another. I found myself falling in love, wondering if he was falling too. The weeks turned into months and after a rough 16 weeks of boot camp, I got my first ever call from him. I was shaking and couldn’t talk. I found myself out of breath and my heart beating like crazy. 1 week later, I found myself holding on to him for dear life when he walked in through the door. We spent 23 of 25 leave days together. He proposed to me before he left to MCT, and I now find myself married to a United States Marine. Michael Angelo Acosta, you are My Best Friend, My Marine, My Husband, My Hero & My Soulmate. I love you with all my heart
First Kiss of My 20th Year. Happy Birthday to Me! There’s nothing i would rather have done than bring in my birthday with my Marine. I thank the USMC everyday for giving him extra time at home with me and his family. I truly believe he is a blessing.
Nothing Compares to that 1st hug! I cannot explain the emotions running through my body as I heard HIS keys in the lock. I was suppose to be hiding but I stood frozen in place. My brain just couldn’t shoot commands to my legs. At that moment in time, nothing else mattered but finally having him home after 4 months of letters back and forth and 3 short phone calls.
Nothing can replace what I feel for him. He is my everything. I live for days by his side and sleep when he’s away. I try to keep myself busy by working and going to school full time. he is so proud of how independent I am. I try to not think about how many miles away he is, or how many days he’s been gone. I’ll admit, I have a countdown for everytime he graduates from another training, when he leaves to come home and how long the trip is. But when he’s finally home, I take as many kisses as i can and cherish them with everything I have<3
