something that rocks...

...Amazing friends that have acquired sainthood status because of their generous offering to swap their hotel room in town for one night with our digs AND pay for the room AND watch our girls so J and I could have an afternoon AND night in town on a date!!! Seriously, Scott & Emily; you are both rockstars! Last week I had a hot date.....

J and I jumped at the chance and took off on his piki piki with me riding side saddle like all good Waswahili women do trying to keep our overnight bag from falling off the back. We blasted AC with abandon (I know!!!) and read books leisurely.....

we walked to dinner in the dark and enjoyed "mock-tails" made with fresh mint, pineapple and mango juice by candle light

and had a real grown up date. no kids, no distractions, just us time.

Then we snuggled, slept in, and had coffee in town. Reading His word, talking together, drinking an iced vanilla latte.... a peaceful morning. We are thankful. It rocked!

Sounds like a lovely way to celebrate an anniversary even if it was a tad early!
