I have little notes and pictures and quotes stuffed throughout my Bible and often they fall out, and I get to look at them again and be reminded of why I keep them there. One in particular caught my eye this morning.

Matt moved into the condo we were gonna live in after we were married about a month before we got married. Since I lived in a house with 6 girls and one bathroom, I often went over there while he was at work to escape and have peace.

One night in particular I walked up the stairs and found this note on the dining room table:

"If you come for something to eat, just know I love you with all my heart, my beautiful soon to-be wife,
Love Matt"

Just like that. Written in his distinct handwriting on a page that was torn out of some journal I'm sure. Direct and simple and full of meaning, just like my Mateo.

I loved finding that note this morning and just remembering back to us and the beginning of our journey. We could never in a million years have guessed then that three years later we'd be living in Montana, about to have a baby boy, and still dreaming strong.

Oh how I love doing life with Matt. Seriously, I can't express it more deeply. I wouldn't want to do life with anyone else.

We have an entire date day tomorrow, and both of us wonder if it'll be our last one just the two of us. That's a crazy thought. Lord, may it be blessed and full and infused with Your presence.


  1. What a sweet man! Have fun tomorrow! I will be thinking of you and waiting for the call! Forget the laxative stuff---you just have diarrhea and your miserable----Micah will come when he wants too----soon soon soon. So excited to see you and Matt and sweet little Micah. Take care of each other.

    Love Mama 2

  2. Oh, I know what you mean. My hubby loves to try to write poems for me. I have a box with all (and I mean every one) of the notes, letters and cards he's ever given me in the 13 years we've been together. It's so nice to go and look again. Each writing takes me back....and I love it.

  3. OOPS! That previous post was from me! Krystina

  4. That is the sweetest thing I have ever read. You guys are so lucky to have each other.
