|Merlin and Audrey|
We spent all day trying to get the kitties sorted out so we didn't have much time for the other parts of the date. SO - since it is our date, we prolonged it... the next weekend we spent a leisurely morning having breakfast with the Coopers (that starts with C!) and then headed out for a hike in Canmore. The weather turned kind of ugly on our drive, the temperature dropped about 5 degrees and snow started to fall, big wet glorious snow! It was so beautiful, but who could hike in such weather? We weren't prepared for being wet and the extra -5 degrees below zero. We decided, instead to have a lovely afternoon roaming the streets (or street) of Canmore. We stopped at a local Coffee House for a Coke, Cheese Bagel, Carrot cake and Cocoa! (ALL start with C!). It was a lovely afternoon spent catching snowflakes on our tongues (OK that was me) and spending time chatting and being with each other.
Honestly, I don't think enough couples do this... it is so important to put time aside to spend time with each other and remember why you are together. Love is a beautiful thing, but it takes work and commitment and time. That is why I loved the idea of the "Alphabet date"; it gets us out doing things that we have always wanted to do and it lets us spend time with each other. It has been wonderful so far! I do have to say that we need to pick up the pace in order to get through all the letters - but, then again, who said they all have to be done in one year!? :o)
