Last night the wives got to decorate the locker room for the senior football game this afternoon. 
I brought my balloons, streamers, and poster board and walked into the lavell Edwards stadium locker room for the first time. 
A million memories came flooding back to me as I had done this all of high school for Hunter as well. 
Of course these lockers are bigger, nicer, and more official. Oh, and it didn't smell half as bad as the high school locker room! 
But... It brought back the exact same feelings of excitement and pride for our team, and love and adoration for Hunter. 
I've loved watching him play all these years and I'm so grateful it didn't end in high school. 
I stood back and looked at his locker all finished, just as I had in high school. I smiled and pictured him running out in his helmet, cleats, and shoulder pads just as I had in high school. Only now, we're married. And next year, I'll bring our baby girl with me to decorate daddy's locker. 
I was sure feeling incredibly sentimental, and incredibly grateful that we get to experience this journey, and all of life's other journeys... Together. Forever. 
So here's to your first year of college football lovebug! I can't wait for the years to come :)

All my love,
Aleigh Joy

Ps. It gets better... He played in his first college football game today and I thought my heart was going to beat right out of my chest. My eyes were wet, my heart was pounding, and my hands were shaking. I've seriously missed watching that stud play. He's incredible. And he's all mine ;)
