us time.


Friday night...

I call the babysitter.

so Ryan and I can sneak away.

just the 2 of us go
out to dinner,
or a movie,
or a little shopping,
or whatever...

{we hang out}

and we always end at Village Inn.

date night

for coffee and pie.

{I get chocolate, he gets rhubard a la mode}

we talk with no interruptions,
we plan,
we laugh
we talk business,
we talk family,
we chat about Disney (you know, priorities).

just a couple of hours of me and him time.

where we reconnect and unwind.

and get rejuevenated
for the next week :)

Life is so busy,
we have to make alone time a priority.

And I look forward to it every week :)

I have been trying to make "Mom and Dad" time more of a priority. I think it's very important! I love that you end up at Village Inn. ;) Have a wonderful evening with your man!!!

Sounds good to me... my hubs and I plan to do things... we usually just end up talking.. sometimes we go park and watch the stars... talk. It's nice after 22 years and 3 kids (still have a 19 and 13 y/o @home)seems like we never get a word in at home!

Celeste said...

Sounds great!! That is wonderful that you two have actually made time to do this... so much of the time these important outings don't happen. :)

And, yes...Disney is important. ;)
