My little Valentine

Even with a fever and bad cold, this little one always has a smile!

Happy Valentines Day!

Share the Love Link Up: Love story

This is the last link up with Keeping up with the Cantelmo's and The Pink Ruffle!

Today is all about our love stories! I will give you the short version.

I met Grant when I was 18....he was 25 :) I was just out of high school and went to a church college group with my best friend and sister.  Grant greeted us and right away I thought he was so cute! Week after week I would see him and say "hi Grant!" and he would usually say "what's your name again?"
Soon, there was a connection though, but I didn't know how old he was.  I thought maybe 21 :) Once we figured out each others ages things changed a little.  I didn't mind he was 7 years older, but Grant coached soccer for 18 year olds and so he thought it was a little weird.  We continued to talk and hang out and soon the weirdness of age went away and we knew that it didn't matter.

We dated for 2 years which seemed like forever because I knew he was the one and just wanted to get married!

We got engaged on December 24, 2007
Took engagement photos a couple months later
Got married May 10, 2008

And the rest is history :)

I am soo thankful for a husband who puts my needs before his, loves me selflessly, strives to be a man of God and is pretty much the best dad in the world to our sweet Emrie. 

I can't wait to hear your stories!!

Next Month and a Psalm

Hi, my name is Emrie and I am going to be one next month!
This girl loves walking all by herself outside and picking up rocks.

She also has decided to play in the bath.  Before she would just sit there and not mind it but not play.  Now our whole bathroom after is soaking wet from all her splashing.

"May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer" Psalm 19:14

This is one of my favorite verses of all time and I try to stay true to this verse to my best ability. I fail, but good thing our God is gracious right? :)

Share the Love: Date Night Ideas

This is our second to last link up with Keeping up with the Cantelmos!

Today we are talking about date night ideas! I love date nights and with having a little one they are far and few between just the 2 of us! Usually our date nights are the 3 of us, which I don't mind, but I do like some alone time with Grant too!

Here are some fun things we love to do!

Go on a hike together!
There is something about being outside in beautiful scenery just the two of you.  We love it!

Drive somewhere and explore!
For us, up North is fun because there is snow! So take a day trip somewhere and explore!

Take a walk!
This is my handsome hubby and he loves to longboard.  If you are limited on time, taking a walk together is fun and free :)

Rent a movie and dine in!
This is probably our favorite date night! After Emrie goes down, we love to watch a movie together, cuddle on the couch and eat chinese!

What are some fun date ideas you have??
