He found a photo book deal going on and wrote up a little poem about all the fun places we'd traveled. He also included pictures...

Ready for some Football

Are you ready for some football? Date idea for him1

The Date Wheel

The Date Wheel printable date night idea.

I'm like you; my husband's schedule is busy and he's often gone on the weekends, money is tight, and we have two little munchkins (one being a newborn.)
