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.
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!
