Saturday, Dan and I got a last-minute babysitter and saw an early showing of American Hustle before enjoying soup and people-watching at Paradise Bakery.  I didn't wear makeup, Dan didn't style his hair.  We were home before Penny's bedtime. It was perfect.

It made me think of the dating that we did before we were engaged.  Dan was courting me in all the right ways, and I was proper in all the right ways.   Before kids and dogs and budgets and babysitters, the dates were longer and more expensive, but their purpose the same.

Pursuing each other.  We don't do it enough.

This article was trending last week, in case you missed it, here's the link to the author's original post (Jarrid Wilson).

Men, pursue your wife.  Women, LET him.

  1. I've read a link from facebook about this and got curious. This is worth sharing for wives and moms. I love your quote at the end. A must!

  2. Our date nights have changed a ton as well. We now have my mom come over around 4. She is there when Annabel gets up from her afternoon nap, does playtime and the park, dinner, bath, and bed. We come home around 8 and have enough energy to enjoy the rest of the evening together. I've really been loving it.


Hooray for comments!
