Why wait?

I couldn't help but surprise Matt with a night out on the town. The last two weeks had been crazy. I worked 6 days straight (very crazy for someone who might work one night a week). Matt works days and I work nights. So we didn't see each other for 6 days then I left the very next day on a 5 day sisters trip for some crazy fun, leaving all worries behind (on my husband). I came home just dead and slept for three days. My poor honey never said a thing but I could see the life draining from him. Not only has he been the sole parent, party planner (they did so much while I was gone), barber, painter, homework king, on cleanup duty and to top it off he just started a new job down in Salt Lake about an hour's drive which is nothing compared to the stress of a new job, new people, new everything. My honey is AMAZING, and it just so happens I tell everyone but him. So I finally woke from my sleepy funk Thursday morning to a loving message on facebook and a text saying how much he loves me. It made me feel so high that a man can love me so fully but then get treated like dirt. How is that possible? How long can someone give and love with nothing in return? I love my husband he is truly the most perfect, caring, loving, thoughtful person I know. And all he wants is my love. He melts me.

I called him and told him to work late. It took me time to drive down there to surprise him. It was fun. I had him meet me at a brewpub downtown. For those who don't know our first date was at a pub, and they always have the best food. I first checked into the hotel and dropped our bags off and then was able to walk over there and we got there at the exact same time, very romantic. And very sweet that Matt thought me getting a babysitter and finding a new place to eat was the best thing ever. Little did he know.

Surprise.... going up.

Happy Valentine's my love, I'm here for you forever and ever xoxo

And this is not how it ended but began. Got to love a man in a lady's robe.

This is the sweetest, greatest surprise and tribute I could imagine. Thanks so much babe. The night out was a surprise--and so welcome!--and I couldn't have had more fun. You make me so happy, really it's indescribable. I'm looking forward to all our future date-overnighters (and just every overnighter in general with you). Love you.
