Time Flies

7:41 PM

But really, it does.
Even though when I think about it, so much happens in all that time.
I just realized today that Trevor has been home from his mission for 3 years now!
I just dug through my old email and found some of the notes we sent each other the weeks before he left for the MTC.
At the risk of everyone gagging at our dorky mushiness, here's a few sweet little excerpts of our story from 5+ years ago:

I'm so proud of you!! I'm sure you'll love it, you'll be great! I can't wait to hear from you.. and send you your cake from across the street!
Much love,

True confessions time: I never sent a cake.
I know, I know. I caught a lot flack for that and have since made up for it, I hope.
I was, however, completely twitterpated the whole week knowing that the love of my 16-year long life (that I had seen a total of 5 days ever) was right across the street being a missionary.
I knew this was something big, and I was right.

I should also mention that I left out the email in which he sent me a bunch of his sexy headshots. For my eyes only, sorry.

I'm so glad I have such a vast collection of emails and letters detailing our entire relationship. And I'm so glad this happened:

  1. I love this!!! It makes me want to re-read all my emails with the hubs! So sweet!

    Have a fabulous week!

  2. P.S. the first email I ever had with hubs was Jan 10, 2007 so it made me smile when I saw the first date on this post :)

  3. That's not dorky at all; it's incredibly romantic & sweet. My husband & I dated long distance when we first met. I still have his first texts in my old phone, I've kept all of his emails, twitter DMs, cards & love letters. They're priceless. May we all continue to cherish the sweet little romantic things :)

  4. Too cute! I love looking back at old emails/Facebook messages between my hubby and I when we were first getting to know each other! You guys are so precious!!!

  5. It's nice that you have these old love notes to look back on!

  6. So cute that you have those notes. I only met the hubs in 2009, but I love going back and seeing the cute cards and notes he left me.

    And you should definitely go to the festival of colors at least once before you leave the area. Its not something you need to do every year, but its a cool experience.

    Ps. How'd you find our blog?

  7. I love that! So cute :) Ps; you look like bethany joy galleotti in that last picture. Thats a compliment. She's gorgeous :)
