A reminder to date your spouse was the last bridal shower card I wanted to share. Its a good reminder, I believe. And lady from who it came, I remember her and her husband walking the pier in Grand Haven, MI very regularly. They always seemed happy and content to be together...at peace.
Clint and I went away for a night for our anniversary. It was a gift. Quite literally because some wonderful friends had the girls and we went away with much ease. A hotel, wine, eating at hole in the wall places with great food...I felt quite spoiled.
We went post packing, moving, and starting to settle in to a new place. As we started off I felt that there was too much on my brain, but that quickly turned. We reminisced about the past 9 years and thought about the year ahead and all that it holds and how we can be together within it all.
It was good and I feel like that couple who I would see walk the pier. They took one night a week to just be them. They are much further ahead of us in their marriage. We will continue to take their advice to heart. We will keep dating.
