I began the year with 2 New Years Resolutions. One was to get back in shape, and I’ve maintained a commendable commitment to that. So far, so good.
The other resolution was MUCH more important.
As a Christmas gift to each other, Steve and I promised to make more time for each other. We sat down together on New Years and scheduled (in Sharpie) one date a month for the entire year. In the past, we’ve gone out together once or twice a year. If that. Each time, by the end of the evening, we were saying how we needed to do this more often…and we never do. Heck, other years we’ve even made the same resolution…we just never followed through. This time, it’s written in permanent marker on the calendar…and nothing will get in the way.
Tonight is our first official DATE NIGHT of 2011! We’re going to dinner and a movie together and it will be so much fun!
It’s WAY too easy to neglect the most important person in your life if you don’t make them a priority. Often times we allow children, chores, work, bills, friends and life get in the way. Don’t get me wrong, these people and things are all still incredibly important to me. It’s just that I’ve been missing something: Some one on one time with my very best friend. Days, weeks and months go by and we realize we haven’t even taken the time to really enjoy each others company. This year, my Love becomes my first priority again. 🙂 I’m looking forward to a year filled with memories of Date Nights with my handsome husband.
