Simply Romantic

Tonight my husband and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary. We went to a nice restaurant and spent 3 hours dining. It was great! We just talked and reminisced and planned together. We reviewed our hardest times and thanked God for getting us through them. And we laughed over the good times...and the not so good times. It's nice that we can laugh about certain "hurts" that were such a big deal when we were first married. God has been good to us!

Something we invested in several years ago and are still using is Simply Romantic Nights by Dennis and Barbara Rainey. We actually got it for my husbands parents when we got married. They're pretty romantic already, but we thought they'd appreciate the gift. It's a nice way to reconnect and it was especially helpful after we had our first son. We just needed to refocus on our relationship and this is a great way to do it. Basically, it's a year of dates in a box (two dates a month one planned by the husband and one planned by the wife). We each take turn picking a date idea out of the box and then plan away. We usually do a date like this once every other month or so. They're really fun and really tasteful. It's a great way to get to know eachother again.
