Saturday Dates + Water Bottles

This past Saturday husband and I went on a mini-adventure together, and it was just so fun. We woke up early and went to walk around and hike to the top of Stone Mountain, pushing ourselves to get in a mini-workout on the climb to the top. Then we sat and drank cold water and hot coffee and let the cool breeze blow in our faces and looked at the gorgeous landscape around and beneath us. There is just something about being on the top of the world that I just love. We talked and wandered and took pictures (me) and did hand stands (husband). Then we climbed back down the mountain and had a breakfast date.

It was so refreshing to spend some time alone with my man doing the things we really enjoy. I am learning as much as I adore spending time together as a family, it's easy to ignore the need for couple time, that this time that we have alone together is so vital to our relationship and well-being.  I tell you, I wouldn't want to share this life with anyone else. 

And to top it all off, my sweet man surprised me with what may seem like a trivial gift to a lot of people, but to me it was completely life-changing, a stainless steel insulated hydroflask. We both drink a ton of water and don't leave home without a 48oz water bottle in tow. And since I love having ice-cold water in the summer, I often tote around a dripping wet water bottle with half melted ice all summer long. But my thoughtful man used our dividend and a gift card to get us each one of the hydroflask bottles. LOVE. I had ice in my bottle all day Saturday, and even after sitting in the car for four hours, the ice hadn't melted! Life-Changing. Sometimes, it's the little things.
