you know when you find those certain pictures that bring back 10,000 different memories and emotions? this is one of them. i remember trying really hard to look good this night; i wanted to impress jake. i remember feeling like a frumpy returned missionary...oh what would i give to look like that now. i remember that i thought he looked so hot this night in that green shirt (i had just recently bought it for him...and he wore it. so sweet). i remember hoping that he would think i looked pretty. i also remember that we had a lot of fun this night: we played ping pong and old school nintendo. as i look at this picture now, i feel a lot of gratitude for how far we've come. we still have that little spark that we had on this night. i still try to look pretty for my husband... and i seriously look forward to the day when we can all go out together (me, goldie, and jake). please pass quickly winter.
when i look at this picture, i feel motivation. i was in pretty good shape, better than i thought. i want to get back to that. i want to wear my pearl earrings again and come up with cute outfits. i want to revamp my look-- change up my wardrobe a bit. i just want to get in shape again. 2 more weeks. it's exciting for me to think about.
i'm glad i came across this photo tonight because it's helped me to remember that i am still me. jake is still jake. and we're still in love. we just have a whole lot more of it in our home now that goldie girl has arrived.
those are my evening thoughts. i am going to bed. good night.
