DH and I only did one deployment together. He had come home right before we met and then left after we had been dating a year. He was gone for 8 months. Then afterwards he went on shore duty.

Send lots of pictures and packages. Silly cute things too. For holidays I would send all those goofy holiday things just to make him laugh. I also made a package for each holiday and themed it like the holiday. There are lots of ideas on pinterest and blogs.

For me it got easier and then harder again. At first it was really hard and then I got into a new routine and things felt better. I made myself busy while he was gone. Then when it came time for him to come home again it started to feel slow again.
