I'm Near, You're Far.

"I hear them say that what we have may fade away, but I refuse. We'll never lose."

With 150 days left I have completely lost my marbles... 
but I have also fallen in love harder than I thought possible.
How on earth is it possible to love someone this much when you can only hear their voice twice a year and communicate through letters and emails?
It's beyond me, but I'm guilty as charged.
This whole journey is crazy, and long, but mostly crazy.
I don't know how we make it work, but we do. 
So, to those of you that think I'm absolutely crazy 1) I forgive you because 2) you're right. I am. But I wouldn't have it any other way. 
I realized that there really isn't a word, or even a sentence to explain what it is like to be away from your love for 2 entire years.
It's a roller coaster of emotions and even though I couldn't be any happier that he is out doing the Lord's work, it is still hard.
I figured I would try to make a video to somewhat explain what this is all about and what better time to post it than when we hit 150 days remaining?
It's completely cheesy and I try not to laugh at myself every time I watch it, but it is also my life right now.
I remember those snobby little high school girls that would whisper about how Hunter and I would never be able to make this work. 
Well, I only have 150 days left and despite the fact that my heart aches every. single. day. I have never been more in love and I plan to only grow deeper in love with him for the rest of my life. 
We're only just beginning.
