To write a book????

I want to write a book that inspires while making people laugh.  My fiance just deployed and one of my friends said I had to read the book “Confessions of a Military Wife” by Mollie Gross.  Now I am only part of the way through the book but I am in LOVE!!! I can completely relate to the author in some very creepy ways; not only because of having some similar experiences but also we fell in love with our Marine for the same reasons.  So of course, immediately I am comfortable and interested in reading about what she has to say, because I want to know what I have to look forward to!  The best part of this book is that she makes everything so funny and the same things that she finds funny are the same things I giggle about, which make them hysterical!!!

So I guess in order to write a book that will inspire along with making people laugh, I need to make a book that will inspire me and make me laugh.  Now, what to write about????  I can’t do the military thing because I barely understand it myself, in fact I call myself a military illiterate!  Maybe I can write a book about trying to survive ……..  Well I guess you’ll have to wait and find out what I survive!!!  And hey if I don’t then maybe it can be a book about how not to survive!!  Wish me luck!!

Thoughts of a Marine Girlfriend.

It’s the constant unknown,

When will he come home next,

Will I get to see him before he leaves,

When will I get to hold him and hug him and kiss him again.

 

What if something happens,

How can I be strong,

How can I not be strong,

Does he know how much I really love him.

 

I cry when it hurts,

And it hurts most of the time,

Except when we are together,

Those are the best times of my life.

 

When will he be safely home,

I wish I knew the unknowns,

I know he is my future,

I could never give this up.

Idiots Guide to Proposals!

Ok so this weekend I was out with my boyfriend’s friends and one of them is about to ask his girlfriend to marry him.  He was planning on asking at Christmas time in front of a lot of people, but apparently his girl friend happened to mention how cheesy that was.  Now he has no idea what to do and he asked me what I thought.  I am sure that there are a lot of guys out there that are about to ask there wonderful girlfriends to marry them and don’t know how to do it.  I hope that this will help you out.

Christmas and New Years are probably the cheesy way to ask a girl to marry you.  It’s uninventive, typical and not very romantic.  This is the person that we are hopefully going to spend the rest of our lives with.  The proposal will tell us how much effort you are planning on putting into the future relationship.  I’m not saying that it has to be large and extravagant, but it definitely should be memorable.  If you can remember a particularly romantic moment in your relationship and recreate it says that you remember the important things by remembering the little things too.  It says that you are creative and romantic and will be throughout the rest of your lives.

I like most girls are only planning on getting married ones and I know that I want to remember this one proposal for a lifetime.  I remember the weekend that my boyfriend first told me he loved me.  We were at the beach for the weekend, in the exact same room that we had the first time we came to the beach and we were standing out on the balcony when he told me he loved me.  Recreating that would be a memorable scene.  That same weekend one of those mornings we were out on the balcony and at the next hotel over someone had gotten up early and written Shelly will you marry me in the sand below I’m sure their room.  I would find that very romantic

Creating a memorable proposal doesn’t have to cost a lot of money.  Pick a favorite place that you both like to visit, recreate your very first date, or take her on a walk down memory lane.  If Christmas is a favorite moment in your relationship then yes it is acceptable to propose at Christmas.  It doesn’t have to be a long speech but it shouldn’t be too short either.  I want to know why you want to marry me.  I may already know that I want to do it, but I still want to know why you want to too.

Don’t by any means be offended by my blog about proposing, I am not engaged nor married currently, I am not a professional or an expert on proposals.  However, I am a girl that like many other girls thinks about the way that she would like to be proposed to.  You don’t have to take any of what I say to heart if you don’t want to.  It takes a lot of courage to ask someone to marry you and I respect that.  I know that like most things if there is something that I can’t get an idea for I search for it on the internet and maybe this will help a few guys get one girls perspective on proposals.
