We attended the Weekend to Remember marriage conference the weekend before our anniversary, which was very special! It was a refresher and reminder about the importance of taking care of our marriage. We were encouraged and taught by the speakers. And we were truly blessed by having some time to talk and connect, away from distractions at home and work.
Our anniversary was on a Tuesday this year. We asked our favorite babysitter to come and keep Annie while we went out for dinner. I (Eliza) assumed that after our meal we would head straight home. But, Dan surprised me BIG time. We walked out of the restaurant and he walked next door to a ballroom dance studio and opened the door. I asked him, “What are we doing?!” He told me he had arranged for us to take a salsa lesson. I was thrilled and completely surprised! I love dancing, and it was a really fun date to celebrate 8 years of marriage.
