We're On A Roll!

Date 5 of 52 ... Yum!!

Good food .. even better company!

How long have you been married? Is there something, that thing, that just keeps cycling around causing one or both of you hurt and pain? Every marriage does. And if you're like us you have tried to figure out what to do about it, how to make changes to make it better. And if you're like us, it's come cycling around again!

We have that thing. And last night we had that aha moment, after almost nine years of marriage. It wasn't the moment of knowing exactly how to fix it. But it was the aha moment of finally understanding why it's such a big deal and why it keeps coming up.

Without going into any detail, because it's so personal, let me just say that the realization we had will change our marriage forever.

And all that happened over fish and chips.

After our dinner Rick suggested we stop at Starbucks for coffee. Rick doesn't even drink coffee.

It was a great date!


  1. Great News for you guys!! :) I'm so happy you had the Aha Moment! they are great and yes your so right about how it gets fixed hten cycles again! I guess that is how the saying the Cycle of Life came from! :)

  2. So glad to read that you had an Aha moment & now have a better understanding of what you are dealing with. I'm proud of you guys for not running from the cycle but instead choosing to deal with it head on as it came up again. Keep up the hard work!

  3. I'm glad you had another date! I'm so impressed!
    I've been married 9 1/2 years, and yes, we have the same fight over and over and over again.

  4. You look so pretty! I like your hair longer. So glad you are sticking to the date nights. Josh and I have been trying to more. At least Kate can babysit now.

  5. So glad that y'all had that "aha" moment! Now if only we could have one! LOL! I think we all have that one thing we struggle with in our marriages. And I'm sure that date nights are helping you to get that special time together to focus on each other!

    Great picture of you 2! Hugs to you girl!

  6. Yea for you two! What a beautiful picture! We have not done well at all on our dates so far this year. You're encouraging me.

  7. are doing awesome with your dates! We have had some things come up and we have not done so well. I didn't even blog about it yet, so now I'm like now what? We have only been on two. So maybe I'll go to 2 dates a month...that is better than our attempt of 1 date a month the other years. I really wanted to do it! Maybe next year.
