It is a rare thing for me and my husband to have a "date night." Our date nights usually entail putting the kids to bed then cooking together. I absolutely LOVE doing this. We cook, talk, and eat. Last night we were able to go to an amazing event for our school. After dropping the kids off at Justin's mom's house, we went home, got dressed, then headed out.
Our school auction event was a great success. One item that was auctioned was front row seats to the 8th grade graduation. I could not help but get a little emotional thinking about my kids graduating 8th grade...then I got to really thinking about my kids graduating high school. I cannot imagine my household without my kids. What on earth will my house be like?
As I spoke with moms, I was reminded that my husband is before my kids. My kids will sadly up and leave me one day. This doesn't mean that I do not love and give my kids what they need. It means that I need to make sure that I make my marriage a top priority. It means that I make sure that the spark that led me to my husband becomes stronger.
This past year has been a growing year for Justin and myself...I think so anyways. I have LOVED "hanging" out with him. We have had some awesome conversations, trips, and even our weekly cooking, date nights. I said this before but the love I have for him today is soooo different than the love I had for him on our wedding day.
People associate X's and O's to hugs and kisses. Almost all of my texts to Justin end in an X and an O. I hope he knows that those x's and o's have real meaning.
Now, my kids have THE best kissing cheeks! I love giving them love with hugs and kisses and it saddens me when the day comes that they will want to get a goodbye hug and kiss away from their friends so no one sees them, I will then, have to remind myself that they do love me. One thing I do know is that no matter how scared I am about not having my kids in my house, I have a husband who is not embarrassed to kiss me or hug me in front of his friends.
My Repurpose for today : Get all the hugs and kisses from my kids but give my husband even more.
