I Never Promised You A Rose Garden


One evening last week, Jeremy and I got out of the house by ourselves. I'm just going to give you a second to let that sink in.

Ahem.

I was just excited that we got to take a drive to Fred Meyer by ourselves, but then . . . he surprised me with this:

A trip to a beautiful Rose Garden in Portland.

It was a gorgeous, warm evening.  And it was such fun to be out of the house just the two of us . . .

That doesn't happen all that often, ya know . . .

What touched me the most was the fact that he knows how much I love roses . . .

. . . And he knows how much I love photography
{before we left he suggested I bring my camera}.

And he drove all the way in to Portland . . .
just for me.

I love that guy.

*sigh* You have a real life prince charming on your hands. Love.

That is so sweet! I am so happy you were able to have a little date by yourselves.

And I know what you mean about being excited just to go to the store. Dave and I get a date night every few months and we have dinner and go to WM or something. It's funny how much faster it goes without a child whining and asking for things. LOL!

Your husband is so thoughtful, especially since he reminded you to bring your camera :) Glenn and I definitely need to get out more.

It's so nice to get out with the hubby once in a while. It's like escaping.

That rose garden is beautiful!
