One of my ideas, or I should say Dating Divas ideas, was to text Brandon every hour with one reason as to why I loved him or why I was thankful for him and our marriage. Well, I was so busy getting ready for the Summer Party, I totally forgot! I was a little bummed since I had written out what each text would say and in what order I wanted to text.
So, one of the decorations I had to set out before the party. Krypto had to stay in the kids bathroom during the party and so the only bathroom open was our master bath. I’m sure people who walked into our room and saw our wedding attire on the bed, as well as rose petals, didn’t know to think! HA!
I even felt a little morbid setting them out on the bed. Like I was doing some chant for the bodies to fill the attire up. I know…..morbid thinking!
Anyway, when Hubby came home and saw the decorations on the bed, he thought it was really cute and said it was his favorite. He changed and then we headed out to eat at one of our most favorite Mexican restaurants, Mercado Juarez.
Dinner was lovely. We barely talked about the kids. Which, was nice. We always talk about the kids. It was nice to talk about us, work, life; we are always interrupted when we try and talk.
After, we headed back home to work on our Love Time Capsule.
We played the “Matching Game,” where I had printed out a few pictures of us, glued them to the red cards of a playing deck of cards and wrote the event on another. We placed those back in the time capsule to see next year.
I also found a Love Quiz from this blog. So we read over, answered the questions and thought up some goals for our marriage. We placed that back in so we can review next year as well. There are a few more things we placed in to look back on as well.
We ended our night snuggling and eating ice cream!
I love you more than words could ever express! Thank you for your love, for being the father that you are, kindness, support, encouragement, selflessness, forgiveness, protection and devotion to our marriage. I am ever more thankful that we placed God at the certain of our marriage and the center of our lives. He alone has changed us, our marriage and our family life. I couldn’t be any more happy than I am now. God gave me the most perfect best friend, husband, and father a woman could ask for!
I look forward to many, many more years of growing and loving each other deeper and deeper.
Love you Puffin/Schmoopie Pie!!
