yes... you read that right. for christmas, i decided to be creative and cost effective, so i decided to do 25 dates of christmas for nate! no, we didn't go out on 25 dates, but each day i gave nate some sort of date or did something special for him. one nite i cooked dinner then we watched a movie, i made him personalized christmas ornaments, cool socks, massages, picture frames, youtube dates, etc. i think one of my favorites was when i surprised him and the kids and when they got home one nite, i had created a mexican restaurant in our kitchen! complete with (cowboy) hats, morrocos, and salsa music! :) the kids really loved it!!
my other favorite is a simple black frame. the paper inside reads: i love you because... and we take turns writing on the glass (with a dry erase marker) things we love about each other! it stays on my bathroom counter and i love writing nate little encouragements, as well as reading the sweet things he says about why he loves me! :-)
