“Thankful November” Day 23: It’s A Date!


On Day 23 of “Thankful November” I’m thankful for special times or “dates” with my husband. Especially early morning shopping treats like this morning!

Yes, this is the day each year, Black Friday, that we go shopping together early in the morning. I’m definitely not someone that starts the night before and shops all night! Those are some warrior shoppers and more power to them. No, this day is different for me.

Holidays, ShoppingMy husband, Jeff, and I get up very early to have a fun morning “date” among the Christmas shopping frenzy. We pack snacks, turn on the holiday music in the van and head out. I’ll go through the sales ads the day before and make a list of specific places to shop but mostly we just kind of go with the flow.

It’s fun to be out among the holiday shoppers, watching people pick out gifts for family and friends. But I feel grateful and love that Jeff and I have this yearly tradition or “date.” It’s full of laughter, smiles, shopping (even if we don’t buy anything), food and just getting into the holiday spirit (though we don’t have to shop to reign that in!). Shopping together the day after Thanksgiving isn’t so much about buying things as it is that the two of us get to spend time together.

So what are you thankful for?

Big Hugs!
