Home

I was on the treadmill today and Feels like Home by Chantal Kreviazuk came on. It is the song that, from the first moment I heard it on How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days, reminded me of Matt. It is the song that I used for the portion of our rehearsal dinner slideshow that showcased pictures of us. I have it on my running playlist because it reminds me that he is part of the reason I am doing this. I want to be strong and healthy for a lot of reasons... he is just one of them :).

Anyway, as I was listening to the words today it hit me once again how much I love this man. We have our ups and downs just like any other married couple (especially married couples with kids!!!), but at the end of each and every.single.day I am so glad to be climbing into bed next to him. I have always had this feeling of complete and utter relaxation when cuddling up next to him and that is something I pray never changes.

There are a lot of words that come to mind when I think of the way I feel about our relationship...about him, but I would say the one that resonates the most is just HOME.

Feels Like Home by Chantal Kreviazuk
Somethin' in your eyes, makes me wanna lose myself
Makes me wanna lose myself, in your arms
There's somethin' in your voice, makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts, the rest of my life

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I've been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you've done


Christmas 2008 with Snuggles


It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong


Summer of 2009 at Matt's cousin, Tim's wedding. We had just found out we were pregnant with Connor a mere 2 days before and didn't tell anyone until we got back from that trip!


A window breaks, down a long, dark street
And a siren wails in the night
But I'm alright, 'cause I have you here with me
And I can almost see, through the dark there is light


Christmas 2011 and obviously pregnant with Cade


Well, if you knew how much this moment means to me
And how long I've waited for your touch
And if you knew how happy you are making me
I never thought that I'd love anyone so much

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way the back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong
It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

I love this song too! I first heard it on that movie as well (one of my *favorite* movies!) and then we had it played at our wedding. :)

You guys have some great pictures of the two of you.
