Knowing that we were in desperate need of a date, I lined up sitters for the boys for our anniversary and we commenced the decision planning of where to go and what to do. These dates don't come easily, so we didn't want to waste a minute. We thought about several options, including a nice dinner out, a movie, etc. However, as difficult as it might be to understand, we really just wanted peace and quiet and time to talk and pray without being interrupted. It is rarely quiet in our house! So, I called a dear friend of mine whose family owns some amazing property with a cute, little cabin on it and she was willing to let us be temporary squatters for the evening. We got a pizza and headed out there with plenty of time to hike around before it got dark. It was beautiful and so quiet! Turns out it was just what we needed and we feel very blessed to have had a few hours away in this paradise!
