The Sweetest Words.....

The sweetest words I heard today came from my husband.  We're shocking kid-less at dinner time and usually that unexpected event has us running out the door to have dinner out on the town.  

 

But we are have realized that this kid-less moment is really a taste of what is to come with college looming in our future and we have got to learn how to cook for two again.  I suggested chicken salad sandwiches, because we love them and our kids hate them and my husband suggested the sweetest thing....

 

"Let's watch the Olympics."

 

Now, that might not seem sweet or romantic, but this year I've developed a yearning to watch the Olympics. I want it on even if I'm not really into the event I'm watching (men's volleyball, sorry, I'm talking to you) but the rest of my family has been kind of of ho-hum about the whole thing.

 

The key to my heart turns out to be kindness and control of the remote!

 

Thanks, babe.  It's been a perfect evening, just the two of us and the Olympics.
