You "stretch" my heart.

Stretch started his new job yesterday. This past weekend we wanted to have some time together, just the two of us. A date. We went and ate sushi at our favorite sushi spot, and then on to Starbucks. It's sort of a tradition for us. And it was so good just being us two. We hadn't had a real date in a long time. We talked about it over the best sushi rolls in the universe, and we figured out it had been since January. Unless our memories fail us. Which is a possibility. The point is, it was sorely needed. We missed each other.

At Starbucks, he surprised me with this!


It's ceramic! It has the little check boxes!!! And it has this message on the bottom: Careful, the beverage you're about to enjoy is extremely hot. That last shot may be too blurry to read. That's because my photography skillz are magical. Anyway. My new mug? I. love. it.

I had seen that cup at our last Starbucks visit (for Holly's birthday) and it was lurve at first sight. That man, he is awesome! I love you, my t'reasure.

{{Let me count ze ways. Uno, dos, tres, quatro. I am now done wiss ze counting.}}

  • You are a caring provider who is better at talking than I am; I love that about you.
  • You are completely in love with Jesus - which makes it easier for me to follow you as the leader of our household; I love that about you.
  • You always surprise me; I love that about you.
  • You wash dishes and clothes; I love that about you.
  • You keep our yard looking beautiful so that we can all enjoy it; I love that about you.
  • You never leave things between us unresolved for long; I love that about you.
  • You are ambitious and driven; I love that about you.
  • You talk AND you listen; I love that about you.
  • You make me feel pretty; I love that about you.

I am lucky to have you. Not that luck has anything to do with it.

I'm so glad that God made you want to marry me.

Beau mentioned something to me about a new jog. I guess ... Congrats to Stretch! We'll miss him at his other job though.

I also have a favorite mug that was a gift from Starbucks. What is it about their mugs? They just make my coffee taste better.
