So, It’s Summer…Thoughts On Thursday

So, it’s summer.  We have been on summer break for a week and a half now, and if you noticed I’ve been a little MIA on the blog. 



It’s summer and I’m not disappearing completely from blogging. But, things will definitely be slowing down a bit both at home and here on the blog. We are sleeping in, staying up late, watching WAY too much TV and doing a whole lot of nothing. So far this summer is off to a great start!! Ha!! Each year Nester reminds us that our summers with our kiddos are fleeing fast, read her words of wisdom here.


Hubby and I celebrated our 21st anniversary last week. Which was fabulous! I have been noticing lately how young all these newlyweds and new mommies look. And in my head I think “were we that young?” yes, yes we were. And…we’re not anymore. Although I feel only slightly different. ๐Ÿ™‚


As we have entered a new phase of sending our babies out into the world, I am beginning to look towards what mine and hubby’s future might look like in a mere 6 years when we are empty nester’s. Woah! What?!? 6 years will be gone in a flash!! 


After dinner and a movie we sat on a park bench and dreamed big for the future. It was such fun! We really haven’t done that in years! I think as we got caught up in the work everyday life we forgot how to dream. Such a shame! We came up with so much awesome stuff and now we are looking toward ways we can make some of those dreams happen! ๐Ÿ™‚

So, my advice to all married couples – new and old – don’t forget to dream, keep dreaming, and dream big! God has big plans for you, no matter the age or stage of life. 

‘For I know the plans that I have for you’, declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’ Jeremiah 29:11 (NASB)
