Why We’re Leaving Town Tonight
Hey guys! I just wanted to stop in and write a short little post about what’s going on in our lives this weekend and why we’re leaving town tonight 😉 Basically, Luke dug into some really great reads this past month and in one of them, the author shared a scheduling practice he’d started years ago, where he intentionally plans for and sets aside dedicated time in his calendar throughout the year to get away with his wife. For him, those dates are set in stone near-ish the beginning of each new year so that as things come up (like they always do), that time to invest in his marriage is already in place and protected.
Luke really loved this idea and suggested we try it out by planing a quarterly getaway! Obviously, they won’t all be fancy or necessarily “away” to another town, but I LOVE the idea of being super intentional about our marriage in this area of schedules (because time is already flying by, and we don’t even have kids yet!) and setting aside those four weekends as “just for us” to catch up, be pet and chore free 😉 , relax together, and dig deeper into our relationship!
This weekend is our very first one, and I’ve been looking forward to it ever since it went on the calendar! 😀 BUT….I have no idea what our plans actually look like because Luke made all the arrangements and is surprising me with these two-ish days away! EEEEEK! 😀 Don’t worry, though, I’m packing my camera, so there will be a fun recap post coming your way next week!
PS | I’ll be sharing a bunch of the weekend fun on Snapchat as we go, so feel free to follow me there (my username is: therickertwo) so you can learn where we’re going and what we’ll be up to! YAY!!!
