Show My Heart

Brittany over at Living in the Moment tagged me to "Show My Heart." Thanks girl! My heart is with YOU everyday!

The rules: "With as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, a poem, a song (or piece of music), a phrase (or quote), an item of clothing, a place, and (just for fun) a Disney princess. If you want to join in, tag six more blogs."

Ah, creativity, on a Friday? Hm. Here's my best shot!


This is Christmas 2007. It was our very first tree together and I forced Matt (and will continue to force him every year until we die) to get a real tree. I just love going out with him to find the perfect tree, bringing it home to string it with lights and ornaments, and enjoying that fresh pine scent! To say he was not into it would be an understatement, but for this one day, he put aside his own feelings and let me experience this little part of Christmas that reminds me of home. He even put the star on himself...and fixed it a bazillion times when I told him it wasn't straight. Oh how I love this man...


During the first few months of our relationship, Matt wrote me a haiku. Here's an example of a haiku if you aren't familiar with one:

God has lots of strength
God is a heavenly God
God is heart

I can't remember exactly how it went (I'm pretty sure I have it saved at home??), but it was something about me being amazing and beautiful :)


This was the very first song Matt and I ever danced to. It was one of those spontaneous dance sessions that just happens out of nowhere when you are playing music. We were at his parents house upstairs going through CDs and he put on this song. I had never heard it before and it was really catchy. But my favorite part was when Matt sang to me.

Although the song has no business being a wedding song, seeing as the couple breaks up at the end, it was ours. It was our song and I could think of no other one that would've fit that moment any better.

This has been my very favorite quote since high school. I even used it in my graduation speech...very appropriate!

"Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

Item of Clothing:

My favorite piece of clothing I have ever worn has to be my wedding dress. I loved everything about it. When I first tried it on it definitely became one of those moments where you just know you will be wearing this exact dress when you walk down the aisle.


This is my favorite place to be...right in his arms.

Disney Princess:

I'm going to cheat on this one. Sorry! I'm not really into the princesses. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like them. But my very favorite Disney movies do not include princesses. So here is my favorite Disney character of all time from one of my favorite movies:


Lilo! Oh how I love this girl! She is just the cutest!
