The Date Nights

There are so many reasons to be thankful that Phil and I got out of debt very early in our marriage. One reason that reaps rewards most often is our ability to go out together, bash around town enjoying good food, entertainment of course each other. I’m so grateful for a husband who makes this happen and also of course for the kind people who are able and willing to watch our babies for us while we do these funsie things together.

“Dates” do not need to be out on the town or even that fancy to be enjoyable. We also have many “dates” right in our own kitchen, grilling steaks and opening wine after the babies are down. The important thing to us is being able to spend some time together just the two of us.

St. Elizabeth of Hungary, November 19th. Here’s a bit of a controversial saint. I save the controversial bits for another year and think on the princess and mother who put aside her own wealth and comforts to feed the poor and create a place they could come for medical attention.


Celebrating TEN Years

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017


“If ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were loved by wife, then thee. If ever wife was happy in a man, Compare with me, ye women, if you can. Thy love is such I can no way repay; The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray. Then while we live, in love let’s so persevere, That when we live no more, we may live ever.” Anne Bradstreet

 We rejoice and thank God for the 10 years of marriage He has given us. To celebrate we took several days over a couple weeks to enjoy some outings together. I’d been pretty sick but God was good to allow me to feel so much better on each of the days we were out.
