Joy of Love: Days 8 & 9

Day 8 Prompt: What they have said, done, promised or given.

2 years ago, for our 10th wedding anniversary, Barry took me to Greece. It was wonderful... We had a little over 2 weeks with out kids. At the time, Mason was just starting Grade One, and was 6 years old. Madelyn was only 3. We'd never done anything longer than a weekend away without the kids [don't get me wrong, we were grateful for the weekends away] But to go away, just the two of us, and enjoy ourselves, and re-connect, and most importantly, remember what it was we liked about each other, before the stress of a family came along. Now, if I get crabby [never happens] or short tempered [unheard of], or he does, or we both are, I can just think back to the time we went away, and remembered what it was we liked about each other. It was the most wonderful gift...

Day 9 Prompt: passions and hobbies

Barry loves to golf. He loves to golf the same way I love to scrapbook, take pictures, fiddle in photoshop and blog. Unfortunately, we live in a very hostile climate for golf. These babies don't get the work out I know he'd like to give them. So they sit in the garage for months at a time. I know he looks at them longingly on occasion. There are a few indoor golf places he can head to, when the situation becomes dire. There's the yearly trip to Arizona with the boys, to get the golf season started off right. But that white stuff in the background... Yeah, that's called snow. Snow puts a damper on his love for sure...
