The children were out here and there today as my husband and I got in the car to go marketing. I like when he comes with me. It is so much cheerier and easier and less stressful! As we began pulling out of the driveway, I heard him suggest going for pizza first. Pizza? Alone? Now?



So we did! The restaurant offers local newspapers to look at while you wait, and we were nearly the only people there... at noon! I'm telling you, this is a podunk town with a capital P! ;)



Here's the thing... it was lovely. It was unexpected and rather wild of us (since I had Thanksgiving dinner to prepare), and it was just simply the nicest thing we've done together for quite some time.



I sat across from him as he read the paper, watching the cars go by, watching him, watching and noticing how grey his hair has grown. I was thinking how blessed I am to have this man smiling back at me over the paper, knowing he means it with all his heart.

I love it! An impromptu date when you least expected it - just the 2 of you - while you've got a big family day ahead. Wonderful! I think I love your husband too! :)

The little things they look insignificant, but it gives us peace... these are small moments that overflow our hearts with joy.

Good Sunday, my dear.

Ahhh. You do have such a sweet husband. Nothing like a "date" with your hubby to help you reconnect, especially when it's his idea! :)

MMMMM and the pizzera style pizza looks real nice. Sometime hard to do the alone time. I pass out free sitter passes to friends so they can do shopping.Get a few takers, but many with kids are lost when they aren't around them.
