You Capture - Letters

This Week at I Should Be Folding Laundry, the theme is You Capture - Letters. I know normally I would be out and about looking for interesting LETTERS on signs and what not. This week... I wanted to think outside of the box. I have 3 very special photos that mean the world to me.

The first is of Letters that my DH sent me when we were dating and he was in Iraq.


The next one is our last name on the mantle. A friend of mine made this for me. I ADORE it. I am so proud of the name I took when I became his wife.


And if anyone watched Friends when it was on, you'll get this. When I met my husband (physically met him) I was sitting at a restaurant/bar eating with a girlfriend. She was saying that she thought she met her "Lobster". (According to Phoebe, lobsters mate for life and walk claw in claw with one another in the tank forever... Ross and Rachel were "Lobsters"). As my friend told me about her Lobster, I said "When am I going to meet my Lobster?" At that very moment my husband rolled up to our table and struck up a conversation with me. And the rest is history. From about 2 months in, we've called each other "Lobster". It's very hard for me to call him by his name. It's usually "LOB, can you rub my back?" Or something similar. So, in our kitchen, over our stove is a vent and on the vent... the sign.
