Our Appetizing Anniversary Dinner at Kona Grill!

My husband and I celebrated our 7th anniversary on Monday. 7 years!! Wow! Time flies when you’re having fun right? So they tell me. Hahaha.

As much as we’d love a weekend getaway, the timing isn’t great right now. So we spun our wheels a bit thinking about how we wanted to celebrate, and decided to try Kona Grill for the first time.

We were looking to have a great dining experience to go along with some excellent food (that we didn’t have to share with children!), and we definitely picked the right place!

Our Valentine’s Date With the Lovings

My husband and I enjoy doing a little something for Valentine’s Day, but due to his work schedule and a church event we decided to celebrate on Saturday. 

We had a marvelous time!

My parents joined us for a delightful brunch hosted by my church family from my college days, and it was the perfect way to start the weekend.

From there we grabbed a late lunch with my folks (hey, we like to eat, lol), and then the hubs and I headed to the movie theater to see Loving

Finally!

We’re Stronger Together

You know that old adage. “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all?” Yeah, well, that’s kind of how I feel about 2016.

I completely understand that this whole calendar thing is man-made, and I know it means nothing in terms of reflecting the inner-workings of God and His ultimate time-table.

I totally get that.

Still, this year, these past 12 months, have been a doozy. Both personally and as a family.

A New York State of Mind: Part 1

I can’t believe that this time last week I was in New York City with my husband! We were there to celebrate my birthday which was on the 14th, but the joke was on him. I decided to do a reverse surprise and I planned this weekend getaway without him having a clue!!!

I’d been to New York prior to this trip, but my last visit was about 10 years ago. This was my hubby’s first time!!!

Our trip was wonderful in so many ways. Not only do I want to share some photos from our first day there, I also want to link up with Aleigh Moore’sA Thankful Heart’ series because I’m truly grateful for the time we had. I missed last week’s linkup because of the trip, but you can see my first entry here. Visit Aleigh’s blog if you want to join the fun, and I hope you enjoy part 1 of our experience!
