One of the many things that we have learned this past year has been to always create time for Mary and I that is just for the two of us. Owning a business together is amazing, and it means that we do get to spend a ton of time together anyway, but we also need to make sure that we set aside time to just enjoy being married (and there is no better feeling than being married to Mary!) The answer: Friday Dates! We now schedule at least one day a week together where we're not even allowed to think about work and just have fun together.
So, today we're kicking back after 15 loooong hrs of driving yesterday, for a much-deserved date day and a double feature movie marathon. One of our big things has always been having "themed" movie marathons...some of our favorites are "save the world" & "scary movie" marathons. The common theme can also be centered around the actor, like when we had "John Cusak" day. Today's theme I guess could best be described as "crude romantic comedy" with The Heartbreak Kid & Good Luck Chuck on the line up. We'll let you know how it goes. But for the next 24 hours we are officially on our day off and thus will be blatantly disregarding :P all email & phone calls until that time! But we definitely have some really awesome messages to get back to, so we'll be sure to do that as soon as date day officially ends.
So as to not leave you totally empty-handed, here are some fun pics (from the point & shoot) from our last date day when I took M ice skating:
Isn't she so talented??
