Psalm 127:3-5

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!"

Romantic Adventure Anyone?

So our topic of discussion and study for this past week in my Marriage and Family class has been about romance and being a creative lover. One of my assignments is to plan a "romantic adventure and put it on the calendar." (Now this is what I call an assignment! ha!) I've been thinking and pondering various ideas and plans.

As I've been considering this, I began thinking that it might be encouraging for those of us married women (and soon to be married women) to share creative ideas and suggestions with one another. It's hard on a budget to plan fun get-aways, date nights, romantic evenings, etc... yet there are many fun things we can do for free or fairly inexpensive.

Kyle and I were encouraged before and even right after we were married to make a priority of spending at least one or two weekends or couple day retreats away each year. We enjoyed our first retreat together in November over his birthday weekend. I surprised him when I picked him up from work with our car packed to make a drive to Tennessee to stay in a friend's guest house. That was a wonderful privilege and we only had to pay the price of gas and food. We thoroughly enjoyed our time together and found it very relaxing!

Now I'm trying to decide something for the spring. I need your help ladies... I'm not very creative and love to hear the ideas of others...

So, with that in mind... please share your ideas for a romantic adventure... anything from free to more costly.

Joe and I have enjoyed some fun getaways. We haven't done one in a while like we used to (money is tight!) so lately some of our best moments together have just been driving in the car. But some of my favorite getaways...we LOVE staying at Bed and Breakfasts. They're personal, nice, and unique. We went to one in Valdosta and went to Wild Adventures. So fun! We also did a little Georgia tour. We went to a free civil war museum (Andersonville), drove to another town and stayed one night in a historical hotel, drove further the next day and went to some other historical sites, camped out in a tent, cooked our food outside, then headed back towards home and stayed at a B & B. It was so fun! We love going to local sports events, going to a local coffee shop, or going to the $1.50 movie theater. Those are just a few! It's fun thinking back on all of that! : )

Stacey,

We really want to try to make it to some local baseball games here this summer! We've enjoying going to a couple basketball games on Southern's campus. It always makes for a fun, high energy date night!

Here is a link to my facebook note about all this... some other ladies have been replying on there... check it out! :-)
