This is us earlier this month.
Sitting in our spot. The place where we had our first kiss. The place where we were engaged (14 years ago this month).
While at BYU for graduation we took the kids around to a few of our spots -- our old apartments, around campus, and this spot.
We had just come from dinner at Brick Oven (yum). It was about 8 in the evening when we sat the kids down and Scott proceeded to tell them our story. It was a "How I Met Your Mother" moment. And so cute to watch their smiling faces as we reminisced, I corrected him on a few details, and shared our happily ever after.
Oh what little kids we were back then. 22 and two weeks shy of 19.
This weekend we attended a church meeting for the grown-ups. One lovely woman spoke on marriage and shared 4 principles to strengthen marriage relationships.
1. Make a decision that no matter where you are in your relationship, that you are going to improve it.
2. There is no substitute for spending time together. (Make date night a priority!)
3. Center your marriage on the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. (Pray for each other, for your love to grow, etc.)
4. Learn about how men and women are different and how we compliment each other. (Embrace the differences.)
Great points, I think.
. . . . and here's where our camera man (Conner) gets a little shutter happy.
