This weekend my love had a birthday.  And, mine will be here in a couple days.
We took ourselves out on a date.
 It sure was a nice present.
I know dating isn't necessary for real love & romance.
But, getting time out to just be together
& talk about anything & have no interruptions...
It's a pretty sweet thing.

We live on the coast.
But, we don't actually go to the beach very often.
Scott doesn't like sand on him.
I was driving down the gorgeous
Pacific Coast Hwy a few weeks ago at the time of the sunset.
The sky was partially cloudy.
The sunset over the ocean was gorgeous.
Pretty much drop dead.
So, I thought when we go out on our date,
we ought to swing by the beach for a sunset walk.
It had been raining all day.  So, even I didn't want a sandy walk prior to dinner.
Scott agreed to a paved coastal walk.
But, we seemed to have missed the sunset by a few minutes.
I'm not sure what happened there.
I even looked up the time of the sunset online.

I guess we'll just have to go again.  (Oh well.)   
We ate at Cafe Cruz.  It had been a long time.
It's so good to go out for good food.
Except we both felt sick from gluttony afterward.

I loved this, Erin. Your last two posts were beautifully written; that relationship with our husbands is so important.

And Happy Birthday Scott!

Hello, Erin...I saw your mom link to your adoption dessert on FB, and then saw that you have a blog, so I peeked! It's so fun to see you all grown up and with a beautiful family. It makes me happy that you are happy loving and serving God in your home.

I am also happy to see Nicola commenting here (my daughters Anna and Bekah just got married a month apart, to guys from Montana and are going to church with Nicola now!) and Charlotte, whom I get to see now and then, too.

Many blessings on you and your sweet family.
