New Year

I gave one of my most favorite gifts this Christmas.  I spent a lot of time planning and scheming, getting advice from others, gluing, coloring, writing, and driving around to gather stuff.  But it was so fun! 

The adjustment to marriage has been hard.  I feel like I've spent the last few months pointing out all of the things that we need to work on.  In light of this, I decided it was time to focus on the positive. I also really love the idea of relational giving ( 

So I made a list of things that Steve likes to do and I turned them into dates.  12 Dates of Christmas, only this is more like 11 Dates of the Year.  One for every month but April (our first anniversary will be something we plan together).  Steve gets to open one a week before the 1st of each month and then we'll put it on the calendar. I will be learning new things and participating in activities that I never thought I would engage in. 

Here's to a new year full of new adventures, growing love, and much laughter with my love!
