It’s been some time since I’ve had the opportunity to sit down and write. I’ve actually been trying to focus my ADD brain on finishing a book I purchased earlier this summer. I’m really enjoying it, but being it’s non-fiction, my easily distracted self is slowly progressing through the pages.
However, one chapter in particular has stuck in my mind lately. It was all about the lost art of dating after children enter the picture. And it’s true, it does become difficult to find time, money, sitters, etc. after the kiddos are born. And therein lies the danger…our lives become so focused on our little blessings, that we don’t make time for our spouses, and totally forget who the other person really is. I don’t know about you, but my husband is my BEST friend, and the simple thought of that terrifies me.
I want to make dating my husband a higher priority. Now, being that we are in ministry, we have a very limited budget. One of the things mentioned in the book I’m reading is the art of date nights in. This momma is at home ALL day with the kiddos, so staying in never sounds appealing to me. So, it’s gonna take a lot of work and experimentation, but I’m willing to give it a go for the sake of my best friend, my children, and even my sanity. 😉
Over the next month, I’m pledging a weekly date with my hubby, after which, I will share what we did (within reason, ladies) and how it felt “date-wise” for this girl.
Are you a pro at the art of dating in? Please comment and share your experiences.
