Catch up post

I wrote a post this morning and it disappeared...here's the gist of it...
Life has been really good.  I know there are ups and downs in marriage but I've been enjoying a heck of an up. Mike and I are appreciating each other and just enjoying our family.  I think we've had three spontaneous date nights in the past few weeks, which is a lot for us. He's been working in town and its been so fun to have him home every night.

I'm a bit spoiled and the 55 degree weather we've been having this month was killing  me-until the sun came last week. Mike came down with a yucky cold but I took the kids to the beach yesterday and enjoyed my favorite place. It was at least 73 out.  Looks like rain is coming this weekend but I'm so grateful for the sunshine while we have it.  Beach days with m & e will be the thing I miss most when I eventually go back to work.

Maxwell especially looks so big to me. He's long and lean and, just...grown up. These two ran in the waves for hours. I love that they enjoy the beach as much as Mike and I.

My favorite thing ever? When Mike calls in the morning and tells me to get a sitter because he's taking me out. I love looking forward to it all day. Here we are out to sushi.

I can't believe you're complaining about 55 degree weather!! It's 7 degrees here. :-)

I'm always so jealous of your weather! :-)

Glad you are doing so well. Marriages are very up and down just like any relationship. Glad you're on an up!
