Thanks mom and dad

We are seriously having so much fun!

It's so nice to spent uninterrupted time together. To have no schedule and no responsibility. 

Our days have taken on a bit of a pattern. Sleep in, grab some awesome coffee and a pastry, maybe take a run, then suit up and plunge into the water. I had forgotten how much I love surfing. I've only gone out sporadically the past few years. And heading into the waves these past few days has been fantastic. It's like riding a bicycle. I was pretty rusty and first but as my confidence improves so has my surfing. And the best past is sharing it with RJ. 

I wish I could give all my friends the gift if time with their spouses. It's so important, yet so easily pushed aside.  RJ and I don't take enough time to be together. We easily slip into a routine where we forget to put out marriage first.  I truly believe that the best way to love your kids is to love your husband/wife. So, even if it's not a full week alone, I encourage you to get a babysitter and go on a date. Or even spend intentional time together after the kids go to bed. Instead of clicking on the TV or browsing the web grab a board game. Play strip poker! Enjoy your partner. I had started seeing RJ as just my kids Daddy - forgetting that he's my best friend. (And a cute one too!)
