Marcella K. - Ever since I first met Tom, the love of my life, we have been inseparable. I don't mean inseparable in the attached at the hip sense, because we have faced some big challenges during our relationship. He was stationed in North Carolina in August of 2012, and we had plans for me to travel down and see him over Labor Day weekend before my next semester started up. A couple days before I was supposed to take off, he called me and asked, "Would it be okay if I came home this weekend instead of you coming to me? I'm being deployed next week." So, a one thousand dollar plane ticket later, and I had him for two nights. He then returned to North Carolina and shipped out shortly after for a six month deployment. I told him I would wait for him, as long a he'd still have me. When he came home, he made me the happiest women alive and asked me to marry him by starting out with, "You know you wrecked my plans today, right?" I may or may have accidentally ruined his first three ideas at proposing, but he still wanted me. We are planning a wedding for this upcoming January for all of our family and friends to come and watch us make this important step. Winning this contest, would definitely help us with some of the expenses but more importantly, it would help me prove that it is possible to make a long distance relationship last - even when the girl is hot!
