Marriage Matters: Just for You

Marriage Matters- Just for You

We took an early birthday trip to California from last week to early this week. It was a trip for both of us, but it was mostly a trip for me. How do I know? I got to spend some me time at The Dry Bar and explore the baby Target. You read that right, in a whole big city full of things to do together, I chose a bunch of girl stuff.

From the day we first drove by the City Target, I had my heart set on checking it out.

Drive By

My sweet husband gladly obliged--and took photos of me being a total fangirl along the way.

Going In

Same thing happened with The Dry Bar, I saw it one morning and was dead set on checking it out. I even jumped out of the car (I was driving) in traffic to make my appointment in time. Mr. Gray did a little solo exploring then came in, paid for my hair, and let them surprise me at the counter and wish me a happy birthday--definitely made me feel like a princess.

And then there was the part where he let me drive the fun car first. If that doesn't make him a gentleman, I don't know what does.

Fast Car

The whole trip was so much fun. It was a great time for us to connect, hang out, recharge, and just be us. We didn't have a single date, time, place, or obligation to stick to, and it was wonderful. It was just me and him--on our own time.

Marriage Matters: Elephants

Marriage Matters- Elephants

Back when this #write31days challenge first started, I was working on my topic and some ideas to go along with it. My always-helpful husband decided that elephants was the way to go. When I'd run out of "marriage" ideas, it was always elephants on his radar. I still don't really understand why. That's what makes us fun.

So, imagine our hysterics when we found this in the Austin airport as we were about to head to California.

Elephants

Yep. The cover of Psychology Today has a married couple with an elephant in between them. So we laughed, took a picture, and elephants have found their way into my October posts. AND... I still don't know why! So, there's that.

What do elephants mean to you? Do they correlate to marriage? Is it a never forget kind of thing? Or an elephant in the room? Elephants couldn't drag you away from your spouse?

Marriage Matters: Back to Reality

Marriage Matters- Back to Reality

We've got our boy; we're home; we're back to reality. I wouldn't have it any other way.
