I was recently listening to a podcast by Kris Vallotton about marriage, he was sharing about how even after decades of marriage him and his wife are still getting to know each other. As I was listening I began to ask myself "Are Nate and I still getting to know each other?". I find in today's marriages it is so easy treat our spouses like a "business partner having transactions". I have only been married 2.5 years and am no expert but this revelation made me see we were not having enough quality time together and we every once in awhile we needed to have some "us" time.
One of my favourite date nights is to get freshened up (some lipstick and fun heels) and go to the Palazzo Versace for drinks and to stare at their gorgeous marble and mosaic floors (enter heart eye emojis!). We also sometimes go for .50 ice cream cones and walk along the docks, talking about our dreams, what the Lord has been speaking to us and our marriage. It is so important to take time with your spouse or really any relationship to reconnect and rekindle your friendship. We can so easily forget all the things that made us fall for them in the first place.
