Marist Valentines: Matt and Erin, Class of ’05

Written by Erin Berthold, Class of 2005

Matt and I met the night before Valentine’s Day 2002.  We were hanging out in Champagnat’s 2nd floor lounge with mutual friends and decided to stay up together to wish each other a Happy Valentine’s Day.  Matt had sent all the other girls heart balloons which were delivered around midnight.  Even though I was the only girl to not receive a balloon that night, we have been Valentines ever since.  IMG_5257

I knew that night I was going to marry him.  I even woke up my roommate in the middle of the night to tell her I met the man I was going to marry.  It was late and I was tired so I got his name wrong and told her it was Mike.  

I may have gotten his name wrong, but I was right about marrying him.  We have been married for six years now.  Our 5th wedding anniversary happened to coincide with alumni weekend 2014!
