If I could give any married couple advice it would be the importance of date nights. We didn’t used to do it when the kids were small but now that they are older and more independent we try and get out regularly. If you don’t invest in your spouse you’re not doing your kids any favors. All your energy is spent raising them when you’re younger and if you don’t take the time to make your husband/wife a priority then how will your children know what a relationship looks like? What will you have left over when your children are gone and it’s just the two of you again?
We went to a concert last night and had a ball. Only the 2nd time I’ve ever set foot in a casino. Those places freak me out a little. I ran into some friends from work and we chatted a bit. Just a great evening! I’ve been married for 21 years to the same man and I love him more now then when we were first married. Is it always easy? No.
Love is an action not a feeling. Feelings fade. If I’ve learned one thing in this life it’s that you can’t live off your feelings. Make memories that will last a lifetime. Go out on dates. Be silly. Be daring. Surprise each other often. Keep it fresh and lively. I thank God for my husband. He gets me. He’s saved me many times. He dotes on me. He buys me diet Pepsi’s out of the blue because he knows they are my favorite. He holds my hair back when I’m sick and takes care of me. He adores me. How blessed am I? I’d say to the moon and back!
*note we did not plan on matching for our date 🙂
