A few Days of Heaven

John and I checked of our lives last weekend and went on a "three-day date", as the kids called it. Thanks a million to family who held down the fort while we were gone. We left the house Thursday morning and didn't come home until Saturday night.

We didn't go far, we didn't do anything really exciting, and it didn't cost us a lot of money. But it was a perfect getaway for both of us. We had the time and energy to focus on being husband and wife (not mom, dad, bread winner, scout master, taxi, homework helper, cook, house cleaner, comforter, etc. . . ) It's unfortunate that sometimes these lead rolls take the back seat with the craziness of family life. "Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan"--not just a nice thing, but essential!,4945,161-1-11-1,FF.html

We came home ready to take on the army (made up of five, almost six, little people) and returned revived and refreshed. And of course more in love than ever.

I love that I can honestly say that I married my best friend. And life continues to get sweeter with time. Marriage is a beautiful thing!
