I am working my way through a marriage book by Lysa TerKeurst
Capture His Heart- for Wives to read. Ralph and I decided we needed to make focusing on our marriage a priority before Nugget comes to ensure it's a habit after. Right now it's easy to have husband/wife time if we feel we aren't getting enough—we just cut everything else out. That will not be so easy after Nugget comes. We picked one of Lysa's suggestions to try. We sat down and came up with things each that the other person could do to show us love. They were written on slips of paper and put in jars for us to pick each Sunday.
Last Sunday night, the one I picked requested a romantic homemade dinner complete with candles, music and a rich dessert. Given my recent revelations about my creativity, it seemed appropriate. J The menu:
- Pork n Potato Dinner
- Blueberry Boy-Bait
- Apricot Peach Iced Tea
I had a ton of fun making it and will share the recipes with each one over the next couple days!
