My husband and I (Christine of Pure Joy Events) first met in college almost 20 years ago. You know what? I'm even more attracted to him today (alright, he may have been a skinny Engineering student back then, but still). He really is my perfect match in so many ways.

On February 14th, show your Valentine some love with these Matchbox Love Notes.
