The Times, They Are A Changin'

Spontaneity is back at our house. Now that our daughters are teenagers, it doesn't take near the preparation it used to to have a date night with my husband.

Yes, that is our toy. Not just his but ours. Granted, he rides it more often than I do but I enjoy it just as much as he does.

We had one years ago. Before children.

You know where this is going, right? Sold it once babies arrived. No time to ride then. Now those babies are teenagers and they don't seem to care if we decide to go out on a whim.

I used to be spontaneous. Now, that is something I'm having to learn all over again. It's well worth it when I just follow his wishes and go.

Saturday night....warm weather....beautiful hills....and a smiling husband when we got home. All because I said "Yes, I'd love to go with you."

It's important to make time to enjoy the things that make him happy -- together. Take time today to enjoy your other half.

Really cool post - it's hard when the kids are small to make time just for each other, but really neat that now you're getting time to 're-learn' how. We're still in the 'young kids' season of life, and I'm a little nervous about the 'teenagers' that are to come. Your blog encourages me because you make sure that you foster good relationships with your teenage daughters and hubby while balancing menus, work, schedules and all the rest!
