so yesterday I bought my girlfriends engagment ring. this is such a huge step for me and my head is still swirling. but it is something that I am totally committed too and I am so ready to be with this girl for the rest of my life. no matter where life takes us i know that I will be with her for the rest of my life. she is trying to join the Air Force right now because she is graduated from college. I still have two years and she doesn't know this but I am planning on joining the Navy Reserves. I don't want to do active because then I will never see her but I figure that if I do the Reserves I can still be with her all the time, and now that DOMA is gone her and I can get married and recieve the same benefits as man and woman couples. I am so excited for our future together and I am so ready to start my life with her.
