This week I’ve been working a lot with Arthaus. I attended my first board meeting with them at The Tea Cozy and offered so many ideas. I left feeling so energized and full of hope. Since then I’ve been appointed as the secretary. I feel like Arthaus will be an amazing opportunity for me and for us. We’re also getting ready for Hands On Greenville Day this weekend. I’m excited for our cause this year: The Foothills Golden Retriever Rescue. We’ll be washing cars and dogs for their fundraiser. I’m so excited that this will be our first HOG Day together and my fourth year as a team leader. The more that I volunteer and am involved in the nonprofit world, the more I know that it’s my calling. Arthaus is nearly identical to the nonprofit organization that I wanted to start myself. I am so excited to be a part of it. I’m so glad that you’re my partner. I’m glad that you will listen to me tell the same story to you ten times with the same enthusiasm each time and you will still listen to me. That means so much. You’ll never know how much I appreciate you. Sometimes I just look at you while you sleep and just think about how thankful I am for you to be the one that I get to sleep next to.

Luna is adjusting quite nicely. She’s gone from hiding under the couches to being very loving and following us around.
We celebrated Easter with your family and had some awesome food. The Red Velvet Cupcakes were a hit. Someone else brought a pineapple-coconut pie that was amazing. I had to note that here so I wouldn’t forget it! As always, it was great seeing them all.
I’ve joined ArtHaus as a board member and I couldn’t be more excited. Great things are happening.

Today we added a new member to our family: Luna. She is the sweetest cat. I’m absolutely thrilled to be co-parenting a gorgeous grey haired, green eyed pet with you. I think she’ll make an excellent new addition to our family. I’m excited for Easter this Sunday and to be able to spend it with your side of the family. I love them all so much. I’m going to bake cupcakes for the event--- you’ve requested Red Velvet ones. This will be the first time that we’ve seen everyone since we’ve gotten married (and some before that!) so it’ll be fun. I love you more every day. This is just another week where I feel all happy just being your wife.

I’ve told you before that you were my favorite person many times. Most of the time you laughed or told me you loved me or something. But this week you told me that I was your favorite person. You probably thought it but you never said it. It totally made my week. I can’t stress enough how wonderful it is to have a hard-working, supportive, playful, loving husband. I can’t help but smile every time I look at you. We’ve been together for nine months and married for nearly three. It feels like a lot longer---- in the best possible way. I feel like you get me in a way no one else can. I’m so thankful for you every day.

I finally got my wedding ring on the day we were moving. I keep looking at it and all its perfection. I adore it.
We have been settling into our new apartment this week. I’ve even been tackling ‘laundry mountain’. Things feel different here. The air feels crisp and clean and happy around us. Maybe we brought in more love to this place? I don’t know. I’m full of corny thoughts these days.
You’ve rediscovered the happiness the internet can bring with your ability to finally play Call of Duty with your best friends live. I’ve rediscovered slam poetry and the way it gives me goosebumps when something the artist says strikes a chord. I’ve been playing a lot of music lately. I’m addicted to the album Crosses and have been listening to it daily. You’ve been working so hard and taking such pride in what you do. It makes me so happy to see how you’ve stepped up. You’ve said time and time again that you “haven’t changed” but you have. You haven’t changed your core- the things that make you, you. But you have changed in the way you care, the pride you have, your outlook seems brighter, and it seems like you love deeper. This love that I feel with you and for you is like nothing I’ve felt before. It just feels so real, so unquestionable. It amazes me every day.
