On 12/6 Matt left for boot camp. It has been extremely hard for me here without him here but I have been writing to him everyday and a few days ago I finally got his address. I cant wait until I get a letter from him. Our 1 year anniversary was on the 8th and it was hard not having him here to spend it with me. My friends and family have been very supportive throughout this whole process and his parents have been wonderful to me. I have even got calls from his friends to let me know that they are here for me if I need them. Having a good group of friends and support system definatly helps but I just can't wait for him to come home. I miss him so much and I know that there really is no stronger love than a Marine's love. I can't wait until graduation day which is March 11th so I can see the great transformation he has made.
