Wow, my first blog!
It's Christmastime so naturally i was online looking at presents for my boyfriend. K technically i wasn't looking for him, i was looking for myself. Who doesn't look for things that they want? Don't answer that. We're both LDS and Preston is going on a mission in two months. That's what this blog is going to basically be about. Wait i'm getting ahead of myself. So i was Christmas shopping and i want a locket that says something about being a "missionary girlfriend" or "waiting on a missionary" on it. I couldn't find one.. But i kept running into blogs about being a missionary girlfriend. So here i am now. Writing my own blog about how i am going to be a missionary girlfriend.
I found so many blogs that offered so much support, and stories, and advice. So i wanted to be a part of it right away. Technically my missionary hasn't left yet. But it's hard before he leaves too. It seems so hard to focus on present when all i want to focus on is trying to prepare myself for him to be gone. We've been together for 2 and a half years in January 2011. We met when we were 16 and now he's about to turn 19 on December 28th. The thought of him going on a mission was so incredibly distant and far away. But now it's here. And as supportive i want to be, it's so hard not to explain to him how much i'm going to miss him.
I seem to be kind of obsessed with the whole idea. He's going to Hungary, and now i want to learn Hungarian. I want to buy him Hungarian stuff, i want to read the Book of Mormon along with him. I want to make sure we write every single week. Goodness why am i even thinking about this? It's still about two months away... it's just coming faster than i thought..
