I'm Dating Again

It's time, I haven't dated for almost 12 years and I decided that it's time to get out there again and see what it's all about...

Okay, so I'm planning on dating the same guy that I dated 12 years ago...it seemed to work so well the first time I figured why mess with a good thing...

My friend over at Creative 2x Mom has started a wonderful trend of dating her husband...

52 First Dates...the idea of 52 weeks in a year and 52 maybe-new dating ideas to help build your relationship with your spouse (you chose him, so now remember why!)...

I think the line that had me hooked and made me realize not only that I wanted to do this, but maybe I NEEDED to do this...
 What a great thing it would be to finish off the year and realize that your marriage has actually improved rather than just survived?

I do want my marriage to improve, to thrive, to be a marriage that improves rather than survives 

I don't want to get to the end of this next year and have our marriage the same as it started...
I hope that our marriage is stronger, healthier, happier, funnier...
I'm not saying that we don't have a strong, healthy, happy, fun marriage...
but should we just say 'okay'...and leave it?...

we all know that if you're on a diet or a weight loss plan, and you reach your goal weight you can't just go "okay, I'm there!" and stop...you need to maintain that weight loss by continuing to work out, eat healthy and make good choices...
that's what I want for our marriage...I don't want to look back and say, "wow we reached our goal in marriage on year 12"...I want it to be that every year we reach a new level of good and keep at it...

so here's to dating my husband for the next 52 weeks...

Pretty cool :)I have to say that I kinda already do this ( or we do it together) But this is a great idea!
