What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Our Anniversary DATE, a few days later


















Date nights are pretty rare for Matt and I, so any night on the town-just the two of us-is a treat.  But for our 10th anniversary, I really wanted to do something out of the ordinary.  Then a librarian friend told about a not-so-far-from-home dinner cruise that she and her hubby had gone on and my wheels started turning.  After looking into it, it turned out to be surprisingly inexpensive.  For just a few bucks more than a dinner and a movie date- we got a five course meal and a three hour boat tour with live entertainment!  

Good food.  Bluesy entertainment.  Wooing from my better half.  Beautiful views.  Sunsets and crisp night air.  Wooing from my better half.  The sway of the water.  The awe of  'cottages on the lake' spotting (which, incidentally, made me realize how POOR we really are! hehehe)  Wooing from my better half.  It was the best date ever. 

On our way home that night, Matt and I talked about how, when it comes to date nights~ we ought to think outside the box more often!

Bliss.

Wow, September sure is the month of celebration for your family. Two birthdays topped off with an anniversary! So happy you had such a great time. (But I've have to tell you, if I had to choose, the tree top celebration would be my definite choice without a doubt!)

Happy Anniversary
