Why ...I love that?

The prospect of moving to Texas along with the great and ever growing distance (in miles) between family and friends was the motivation behind starting this blog. I have long been a lurker on several blogs (see sidebar), but just recently began desiring a blog of my own. I want to be able to share all of the wonderful things that are happening in this family of ours with all the people who matter most. This desire began several months ago, but did not come into fruition until now because...I'm anal! I wanted the name of my blog to mean something AND I wanted the web address to be the same as the blog title. Sounds easy enough right? Wrong! Every name I came up with right down to the boring "Alyssa and Evan" had already been taken. So one night out of sheer frustration I got out all of the cards Chris and I have ever given each other. I was reading through each and every one looking for inspiration. I found it on a card Chris gave me not too long before I had Alyssa.

I was in the last month of pregnancy and looking like this:

Let's just say I wasn't feeling the most attractive. Chris was sweet enough to give me this card...which I totally didn't believe, but sweet none-the-less.

Thank you for the inspiration Hallmark. This time, the $2.29 was totally worth it.

Husbands that care enough to lie...I love that!
