A date night: BIG small Gestures

I think as a military family of five.  Adrian and I sometimes forget the value of a date night.  We get so wrapped up in our day to day.  Stack up a list of things that we need to do on the weekend.  It’s always doing or going.  I think there’s also a sense of […]

Adrian and I made a decision this week.  It’s something that we had been really talking about for a good while.  We’ve worked on changing what’s in the cabinets.  We’ve changed our way of cooking.  Improved our lifestyle.  Well, I have more so since he has PT everyday.  Now it’s time to take another step.
