Sen(i)or Selfie

Sometimes we need to change our viewpoint to get a better read on life.

Tonight Geoff and I drove out to the Portland International Airport for our date night...and then we spent it at IKEA. Nothing says awesome marriage like sharing Swedish meatballs and picking out the perfect new set of white coffee mugs! Seriously. (Grin.)

We had a great night, once we got out the door. I had yet another run-in with one of my kiddos. The kind that makes a mom's blood pressure and stress level rise. The instigator? How to finish off the meal I had started earlier in the afternoon. (Sigh.)

Keep pressing into LOVE and KEEP LIVING A BLESSED LIFE!
