Time alone.

After the children go to bed my husband and I are lucky enough to have a couple of hours together each evening. Sometimes we just do our own thing and head to our respective corners of the house. Often we find ourselves just sitting on the couch talking. This is truly special time to me. We don't have a television in the room where our couch is on purpose. We made a decision a couple of weeks ago to put the televisions in areas of the house where it would be less convenient to watch them. This has really worked out well for our family. The children are reading and playing more because it isn't much fun to watch television in the basement or whatnot. My husband and I are spending quiet time as a couple talking. This has been such a treat.
