Valentine's Day 2004 was another milestone. We were just a few months from getting married. I was working two jobs, making my last attempt to get good grades before graduating college. Matt was in between jobs in Kentucky - trying to scrounge up as much cash he could before supporting a wife in a few months. I don't remember if we saw each other that weekend, but I know I sent him a card that said "Enjoy your last Valentine's Day as a single man." Sweet.
Since getting married, each Valentine's Day has become less dramatic (less expensive) and more about enjoying the deep love we have for one another.
This Valentine's Day, I'm celebrating Matt as husband and father. He is a loving leader in our home. He loves Annelise with a passion. And he loves and cares for me daily.
We love you Matt!
