Date Night

These last several days...okay, this entire week, have been a whirl-wind of obligations, commitmnets, and, yes, emotions! We have trudged through but are in some serious need of a moment together; to breath, talk, and relax in eachothers presence. Something we haven't had the opportunity to do. So, we chose to have a date night. We cleared the evening, turned off electronic devices and focused on eachother! 

As some may already know, our favorite 'date-night' meal is sushi. For me, I think it's because once I make the sushi rice and the asian slaw, I'm done! Cam makes the rolls, sears the tuna, prepares the miso soup, and makes a magnificient cucumber salad (as a tribute to our very beloved seaweed salad at the restaurants)! When it's all done, it really is quite a feast! And the best part is, with a combined effort (and the fact Cam enjoy's making sushi!) we can make this meal in an hour...and the outcome is so worth the time commitment!
This time of year, especially, can beome so full of  responsibilites, commitments, and engagements that may seem out of our control. It's easy to do. I know! But we have to remember to always take a day, several hours, or several moments each day to refocus on the relationships that mean the most to us; helping them grow stronger and more secure. A date night is a perfect way/excuse to incorporate it into your week!

Cam lost a friend this last weekend so we are even more attune to just how precious life, and all it's relationships, are. Not to be negative Nancy here, but life is extrememly precious and far too short. We never know just when our time may be finished here on earth. Let's commit to make the most of what we have; live everyday like we don't know what lies ahead (which we don't really)...not only for ourselves but for the betterment of those around us - those who need help as well!
