The Date Nights

Sunday, March 18th, 2018

There are┬áso 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.

Thursday evening we held our annual Valentine’s Day Fancy Supper. I found this idea years ago and we’ve had fun with it since. like to have everyone dress up fancy but our weeknights are sometimes pretty busy so that didn’t work out this year. Mercy did arrive in a her ball gown though just to make the rest of us feel way underdressed.

That afternoon she helped me in the kitchen get all the pizza crusts made for the meal.

And living so close the a lake it’s just so easy to skip over and get those fish. Phil’s taken the kids out a lot this Spring. Here’s a long overdue recap.
