i planned to spend thanksgiving eve watching g study and maybe doing some studying of my own, but for whatever reason, he came home from work wanting to play instead. on a whim, i decided we would have our own little pre-thanksgiving dinner (minus the great food) with just the two of us. i pulled out the candles and we ate dinner by candlelight & talked about what we were grateful for. even though it was cheesy and we laughed through the entire thing, eating dinner in the dim light of our regular old dining room still felt special.
later, we headed down to the gateway to catch a movie and check out some of the downtown christmas lights. as we drove home that night, i couldn't help but think to myself that even though both of us are looking forward to a bigger family some day, i know i will look back on these last 3 years and think about how much fun we had and how in love we were. i have made some of the best memories of my life on random nights like these with my husband and i am lucky to have had him all to myself for a while.
