But here's my main reason why 7:30 is sooo sweet:
The house is quite and its just me and my hubby, time to pick up our feet, relax maybe enjoy some desert together (okay who am I kidding I have desert every night) and just talk about our day and be adults (okay we mostly talk about Oliver) and every 10 mins we glance at the baby monitor just to watch him sleep. But all the same, its nice to have this time together and we look forward to it....We need this time...we love this time... and Cherish this time.
However, things weren't always this way for us, for along time after Oliver was born we didn't make time for each other we ran ourselves ragged and crashed as soon as our heads hit the pillow and probably said a few short sentences to each other the entire evening and sometimes on the weekend if we didn't have a million things going on we would actually spend time together. But it wasn't enough, we realized that our marriage had to come 1st (after God of course) Once we realized this, with lots of prayer, we made a huge change and so when I say "Sweet 7:30" it is with a grateful heart that we have made this time "OUR time". We absolutely love and cherish our time with Oliver and love being parents and hope to add many more to our family (Lord willing) but the Lord laid heavy on our hearts to make it a priority to spend time with each other...It may not be a fancy dinner or a night on the town but its US and that's all that matters.
In my short time of being a parent I have learned some valuable lifelong lessons (most not the easy way) and "Sweet 7:30" is one that I am soo thankful for and its my prayer that as we grow as a family, through the years that we would always remember US! As I heard a wise women say this week (who was actually the one who inspired me to write this post) "Parenting is passing, but your marriage is forever" so take care of it...
