My amazing husband brought me one of these the other morning. I love him, I love that he knows what makes me smile, I love that making me happy makes him happy. Just so you know, that goes both ways. I love being married to him. And I know that I’m also gonna love the next seven Monday nights when out with him-alone every night. We’re taking a marriage course that includes a candle light dinner and a dvd presentation all about, you guessed it: marriage. I expect to be challenged, I expect that we’ll grow closer and I expect that I will love walking away from the kids every Monday night.
I loved this article that I came across the other day: How to Raise Boys who Read. Loved it, and couldn’t agree with it more.
I’m amazed that summer came back-it was pushing 90 this weekend and it’s pretty warm still. Good for the tomatoes in the garden, bad for afternoon runs with dog. Just too hot for both of us.
I just made pumpkin zucchini muffins, so so good. I might need to hide them before they somehow all get eaten up, most likely by me. I like pumpkin in any form and I can’t turn down a good muffin. Which is why I probably need to cut sugar out for a little bit, or perhaps for a long time. So as to avoid that muffin top, like to eat them but don’t like having them around my middle.
The girls are using a tiny fake squash as a microphone. They are currently conducting an interview with their friend Piper. It’s quite comical.
And with that I realize it’s time to put on my dress, it’s date night!
Happy Monday evening everyone.
