date nights

for today's marriage tip I thought I'd share this little interchange that deb just texted me between her and our kindergatener.

----------
Julia (5): a boy in my class says he wants to go on a date w/ me.

Deb: what do you think you would do on a date?

Julia: whatever a mom & dad do, I guess.

Deb: we usually just buy groceries :)

yeah, sounds exciting huh?!

but seriously, go on dates with your spouse no matter how "unromantic" they sound. not every date has to be a scene out of a movie, or beat the expectations of the last time you went "all out".

couples need to spend time together. period.
