Woman’s Night

January 31, 2012

Matt’s coming home late, so Karen [my mother-in-law] and I buddied up this afternoon. First we went on a glorious hour-long walk in the nice weather [replacing the planned dark movie theater], then we dressed up and went out to dinner.

Heh. Another title I’ve been brewing up! We did get lost today – in the woods! Lost mentally because of the beauty of a hike. Matt and I actually went for a quick run this morning and then had a quick lunch before we left to meet our friends. Cheddar cheese + Strawberry Jam with […]
