I almost forgot...

I almost forgot what it felt like to be a girlfriend.

I almost forgot what it felt like to have a boyfriend.

But then I remembered....


Being kissed on the cheek for the first time.

On Saturday night, Josh took me on a date. A real date. Dinner and a movie. Well, in our case it was movie and a dinner (because Josh isn't too good at staying awake during movies, so we have to go earlier). It's been too long since we did that- just had a night being carefree, ordered an appetizer AND dessert. Somehow in the midst of our busyness, work, Josh being in school, money worries, and now moving, we forgot. We forgot to be each others' boyfriend and girlfriend. We forgot about trying to impress each other, being playful and carefree. And when life's so serious all the time.... things get to be too much. And you have to go back.

Back to a simpler time in life.

I commented on Bekah's blog today so I thought I'd be fair and comment on yours too. Didn't want you to think i was picking favorites. This was a sweet post. So glad you guys got to go on a date! That's always exciting. What did you see and where did you eat? love you!
