So, I gotta say, I think probably the coolest thing about this blog (besides recording our family's history) would be the times I have asked for advice from those of you that read it, and you were able to offer me some wisdom. The most significant, of course, was a couple weeks ago when I pretty much thought I was going to drown taking care of my three in diapers! A lot of you offered kind words (I am so thankful) and most offered really concrete things I could do to make life more manageable. I have put into play so many of your suggestions, and (knock on wood) everyday has gotten significantly better. I am even ready to say we are in a really good groove here at the Wilkerson Casa. But, I am aware that without some of your suggestions, I'd still be exactly where I was 2.5 weeks ago. AND SO...I have decided to begin 'Talk to Me Tuesdays'.
On Tuesdays, I'll ask for advice.
I need so much advice about so many different things. Sometimes it'll be about the kids (but people without kids, I am interested in your thoughts too- in fact, a couple weeks ago, some of those comments were the most valuable), sometimes I'll ask about marriage, or friendships, or faith, or housekeeping...just things in my life that I could use opinions on.
I figure this will be awesome in a couple ways
1) I can learn from people who are wiser than me in different areas. The more I move through life, the more I realize it's just about community and really learning from others. Why invent a wheel that is already spinnin' with precision by someone else?
2) If you need advice in the particular area being discussed, you can follow, or check the comments and learn you some things too!
HOW FUN WILL THIS BE?!?!?!
So- first 'Talk to me Tuesday'
Talk to me about dating...(not only married couples)
Aaron and I were quite intentional in the beginning of our marriage about dating, and I think it is kind of key to a good marriage (maybe you don't, you can tell me about that too). BUT, each kid we add, makes dating more difficult. We have kind of fallen into a rut where our monthly going out date nights are a groupon restaurant and then head home. Although I am thankful for the time we have- it'd be fun to do different things, fun things, things that help us continue to get to know each other.
And so, Talk to me...
What are some of your favorite dates in the Metro Detroit area for under $50? What are some of your favorite date ideas for 'nights in' when you can't find or afford a sitter? What's the best date you have ever been on? When have you and your partner had so much fun but you didn't even expect to? What are your best dating practices :)?
