We're still trying to figure out the baby-sitter thing in our new town. So for this date I had the idea to do something quick in the morning hours while the kids are still in their pajamas, watching saturday morning cartoons, and Conner could hold down the fort.
Scott and I strapped on our walking shoes and drove to the neighborhood where our house will be. It is a beautiful neighborhood with lots of paved walking paths. I thought it would be fun to spend the morning on a walk, exploring these paths, and checking out the area.
It was a great time. We walked, talked, and just enjoyed the quiet morning and fresh air.
Considering we live in the desert it's surprising but just plain awesome to see that our new neighborhood is lush & green with tree-lined streets, there is beautiful & well-manicured landscaping, stone walls . . . .
One of the paths goes directly behind our future home. Love that fact that we won't have neighbors right behind us!
(the structure to the left is a gazebo with a ceiling fan for poolside seating & shade . . . . on the right you can see the master bedroom balcony)
After walking for about 40 minutes we hopped back into the truck and drove to breakfast at a place that came highly recommended by a local blog friend. It is a bakery called Bread & Butter. Scott had a breakfast burrito. I had the sourdough waffles (yum!) and we picked up a giant cinnamon roll to bring home to the kids.
During our meal we oogled over the amazing muffins, tarts, macaroons, and pies that sat displayed behind the glass. I think we will need to visit again.
Okay now it's your turn!
Here's how it goes:
1. Go on a date with your husband. Easy, right? And post a wrap-up on your blog. This is for anyone . . . whether you put together a Year of Dates gift or not.
2. On the first of the month, come here and submit a link to your blog post. Not your blog
3. In your blog post include a text link back to me. You're also welcome to use the image below.
4. Lastly, have fun and visit each other!
