A Valentine's House Double Date



We love this couple! 

For Christmas Bill & I gave them a chocolate “gingerbread” house kit, and since it was already red and white themed, they decided we should do it for Valentine’s Day as a group.  This was SUCH a fun night J  We went out to dinner together (those pictures will be included in another post soon), and then we ran by Target and got all kinds of fun Valentines candy to decorate the house.  We laughed and talked and made a mess.  It was so wonderful. 

I think what was most important, is that it allowed us to relax and just spend time being together.  So often I feel this pressure to get to know people deeply or to invest in their spirit, but laughter really is the best medicine.  We all were just glad to be able to relax around each other and let our guards down.  No need to impress anyone or prove anything.  We could just be ourselves, and there is such freedom in that.

Courtney and Adam are so dear to us.  Adam has been my friend for 4 years now, and he has poured into me and Bill’s life in such amazing ways.  He is such a strong supporter of our relationship, and we are both so grateful for his friendship.  He really is one of the most dependable, drop everything to help out a friend, people I have ever known.  Courtney is newer on the scene J  She is such a wonderful woman who is stronger than you can possibly imagine.  The more I get to know her, the more I admire her.  She makes me laugh and I know our future holds the dearest of friendships and connections.  I love these two in such a special way, and I hope these words can encourage them today in their relationship and in their individual strengths. 

Love you guys!
