Valentine's Day

We've never really bought gifts for each other on Valentine's Day. Last night, we took advantage of a special deal at church. The high schoolers were offering childcare for $10 per kid for 3 hours. So for $20 we got to spend 3 hours by ourselves. Originally the plan was to try and go see a movie. But looking at showtimes, they all had start times about half-way through the 3 hour childcare time-frame (6-9). So we just went across the street to Old Chicago and spent the whole time just talking.

It. Was. Awesome.

As much as I really want to see Liam Neeson kick butt in "Taken", I had a much better time last night. I shared with my accountability group this morning about how the process of reading the "Real Marriage" book, and attending the corresponding class at church, has really drawn Wendy and I closer. We're sharing more of our hearts, fears, sins, hopes, and excitement with each other, in a way and on a level I don't think we've experienced before in our 7.5 years of marriage.

We ate the yummiest pizza in town, enjoyed a mini-pazookie and celebrated the fact that not only are we "still in love", but our love/adoration/admiration/zeal for each other is growing more and more.

Thank you, Lord, for such an awesome woman!

p.s. Thanks to Jeric for the love! =)
