We haven’t taken much of an opportunity recently to just write about us and what we’ve been up to, so we thought we’d go ahead and fill you in.
1) Reading, Reading, Reading!
Megan got a Kindle Fire HD for her birthday late last year and she’s been a reading machine since. The number of blogs and free ebooks she’s consumed is kind of mind-boggling. As for me (Justin), I have lots of required reading for school, but I’m also enjoying “31 Days to Great Sex”, “Grace Based Parenting” as well as lots of marriage blogs.
2) Movies, Movies, Movies!
We became Amazon Prime members at Christmas and have taken some opportunities to enjoy some movies and TV entertainment. Our “that was definitely worth watching” list includes the British Sherlock Holmes TV series, and the documentary Man on Wire. If you’re a fan of anything on Prime, feel free to let us know and we’ll add it into our queue.
We received a surprise cash gift recently and decided to purchase some new board games to enjoy at home with one another and our children. We purchased Ticket to Ride (and quickly added in our own Marriage edition rules) and some of the Ticket to Ride expansions such as 1910, Switzerland, India and Africa. And we also purchased Carcassonne. Megan is a huge fan of TTR (even without the Marriage Edition rules) and Carcassonne is growing on her…I think.
4) School, School, School!
I (Justin) have been working on a Master’s Degree for a number of years, and there is now light at the end of the tunnel. While there may be another year or so to go, my classroom work may end as early as this summer. Woo-Hoo! I’m really looking forward to finishing up so that I have even more time to write here on the blog!
5) Marriage, Marriage, Marriage!
Yes, of course Megan and I take opportunities to put our marriage above all other relationships (other than God, of course). Our children are fantastic, but our marriage comes first. Our hobbies and interests are fun, but our marriage comes first. Our…you get the idea.
Anyway, outside of our own marriage we’ve made ourselves available to help mentor others as well. It’s given wonderful opportunities and we look forward to building more and more fantastic marriage friendships in the years to come.
That’s a quick overview of what we’ve been up to outside the blog. How about you? What’s been consuming a great deal of your time recently?
