Perry, I know you're struggle all too well!
My fiancÚ and I were friends for a year before we started "going out," and the week we became exclusive, I moved halfway across the country for a job, and we stayed long distance for the next 10 months. And let me tell you, it is HHAARRDD! But you already know that.
The good thing is it sounds like you guys are pretty solid, so I don't doubt that you'll make it through. Honestly, the best advice I can give is to try not to think about all the ways it sucks. In retrospect, I look back on the 10 months my fiancÚ and I were long distance and while I know it was hard, that's honestly not what I remember. I remember my family making fun of me ALL THE TIME because we talked on the phone literally every chance we got, many times we'd fall asleep on the phone together. Because that was the worst part, I do remember that. That time when it's late and you have to go to sleep but you don't want to hang up the phone because then they're gone and you're alone again in your own bed and they're not there anymore.
And you can still celebrate with her. When we were long distance, there were no ipads or skype, and smart phones weren't really all that popular yet, so we didn't even send a single picture mail or video chat once or anything. But now, you guys can skype and video chat and what-not, so you should do that!
I wish you guys the very best!
Sweatin' for the dress!
