1. double dates
2. hot tea
we had a double date with great friends last week. (isn't double date such a fun phrase to say? i told hallie we were going on a double date and she thought it sounded hilarious). they are such good friends and wonderful people.
you know, there are just some friends with whom you can talk about anything. we can talk about (w)horses (haha, inside joke), our kiddos and our love for Jesus.
i think as a couple, it's important to go on dates and spend one-on-one time together. i think there's also something to be said for double dates, where you can enjoy adult conversation without feeding/wrangling children.
i am feeling very blessed today for friendship.
and hot tea. i'm feeling some co-worker stress lately while at work. having a hot cup of tea seems to help me relax and let it go. let it goooooooooo. done.
and speaking of helping me feel better - exercise. the benefits are so awesome and i feel so much better when i am exercising daily. i took a zumba class for the first time last night. it was fun to work out with people! i usually work out on my lunch hour. in the basement. at work. not super fun, but i have created quite a gym for myself down there.
also, hallie likes to put on her pint-sized sports bra and workout with me at home. side plank!
