Thank you to Yahoo! Mail for sponsoring this post about staying connected. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away Matt and I shared an email address.
*gasp* I know
We were so 1999.
As time went on I decided I needed my own email address. I wasn't sure who or what I'd be emailing about *gasp* (yes, we shall be gasping a lot during this post) but I knew I wanted my own. I was tired of reading Matt's emails about Fantasy Football. So I joined Yahoo! and my love affair with email began.
It was easy to see how emailing made my life easier in a practical way. But what I didn't expect was how much fun it would be! And also? How much it would affect my marriage...don't worry, in a good way!
Matt began to email me during the day while he was at work. I'd wake up and there would be an email from him and my morning was instantly exciting!
Remember when getting an email was exciting?

Actually, I still get excited about getting an email.
Also related: I am a nerd.
Anyway. Email. Love affair. Stay with me people.
It began as a little hello here or there, a list of things that we needed to talk about, a reminder about picking up milk on the way home. But as the days went on, the emails between us became so much more. Flirting and silly bantering became a fun way to keep in touch throughout our day.
As a stay at home mom, emails from anyone felt like "Oh thank God there are real humans out there!" but emails from my husband were sweet reminders that even though he was terribly busy at work, he always had time for me. My love affair for email totally started a fresh love affair with my husband.
To this day we email each other daily. It gets me through the day. I love it. I love him. I love email!
All for different reasons, of course. Just thought I'd clarify.
The video below is so sweet and pretty much sums up what I'm talking about!
Yes, we have also sent a lot of I'm Sorry emails. But they always end with me sending Matt pictures of us in a slide show! Wait, no they don't. I'm such a slacker.
So tell me, who else has some good email love stories? I want to hear them!
Right after I go send my husband an email...
