Josh and I have made it a point to get alone time together whenever we can. We weren't so good at it when we had just one kiddo but now with two it is extremely important. We recognize that our relationship needs to be as strong as possible so our relationship with the girls can be as strong as possible. Some people say the kids come first, we however, do not agree. Our marriage comes first. Second only to our relationship with our Lord. We have to be strong in the first two in order to be strong for the third.
Since having Kyra and starting graduate school it's been a little difficult to find time for ourselves. Quality time at least. There are some evenings where we barely say twenty words to each other in the time we get home to the time we lay our heads down on the pillows. Too many nights like that can really wear a marriage down.
The other day the girls had an impromptu sleepover with my parents and we had an impromptu weekend to ourselves. We were unsure of what to do with our time. We went out to eat and then went to the overlook at the airport and watched the airplanes landing and taking off. It was so much fun. No distractions. Just the two of us. His arm around me and my head on his shoulder. Perfect.
