The Vampire Diaries Soundtrack

While every fan expressed affection for this incredible show, Jennifer moved us with her story of life as the wife of a Marine. Read all the entries HERE and follow the jump to read excerpts from Jennifer's entry.

I'm a wife and mother. Now, while that might not sound all that different from anyone else, I'm married to a United States Marine. My husband recently returned from a seven month deployment in June and is gearing up to head back overseas again come November.

It takes almost all of my time to keep our children entertained and distracted from missing daddy while he's away. One of the ways I do that for them (and myself) is with road trips to see family (something that requires amazing music of course) and other adventures. And finally, the time that I do have to myself, I love to listen to music while I unwind...

After dealing with an active duty military member, the strays he brings home from his squad, cooking for a full house (I feed 8 or 9 on any given night), looking after children, attempting to work at home, donating plasma twice a week, and making the solid effort not to go insane-- I need all the help to unwind that I can get.

All I know is that right now I wanna rip your clothes off right here in the middle of this hall and throw you in one of these classrooms and kiss every square inch of your body, while a bunch of people who drive minivans listen wishing they were us.
