Morning Coffee Dates.
Two years ago, we hit a pretty stressful time for our family and together we decided something needed to change. We came up with the idea of waking up at 5 AM to have coffee together. Showing up for each other (without kids competing for attention) and truly connecting before the busy day begins has been a game changer in our marriage.
I've NEVER been a morning person and most days Josh has to literally come to the bed and pull me out. But, it has blossomed into one of my very favorite parts of the day that I truly treasure! These are the conversations I'm able to really dig deep and we can share what we need help with, difficulties with the kids or work and be there to listen and encourage one another.
