Date Night

Last night the girls' grandma wanted to spend some time with them.  J and I didn't have any plans and didn't feel like going to a movie or out to dinner.  We decided to do something we haven't done since Halley was born, we went to the beach to simply to watch the sunset.  For the first time in four years we actually got to sit in beach chairs and be still. Don't get me wrong, I adore taking the kids to the beach.  But the entire time we are up, playing, building castles and keeping them from drowning.  When we were poor starving college students almost all of our dates were at the beach together.  We picked up 99cent burritos from a little hole in the wall, worked on our homework, took naps and read the Bible.  We are planning more date nights here in the future.  It is so crazy how something so simple is so perfect.  A family of dolphins swam by as we sat and I wished I had my real camera instead of my husband's iPhone.  But then again, the pic quality on the iPhone isn't too shabby.
Are you searching through your Bible concordances for Faith, Grace and Hope verses?  I am enjoying the verses that have been shared with me and I am looking forward to reading more.  A sign is in need of a good home.  Is it yours?


  1. Beautiful! I would love to visit the west coast someday! Not just for a layover in the middle of the night:)

  2. What a great romantic was that!!??? so nice just to be a couple and know i love it... but not the name they call you all day long!!! Glad you got some time away!!

  3. How jealous am I right now? I am supposed to be happy for you that you got a date night...and I am...sure...sure...but all I can think of is how cool it would be to just casually go to the beach and watch the sunset! Oh! And don't forget the dolphins! Ah! You are blessed to live by the ocean, girl! Maybe we could swap some Colorado mountains for some So Cal sun!!! :0)


I love sunshine, happy people, and the power to delete. Sparkles! Rainbows! Unicorns!
