When I was little, I would wish, dream, and beg my parents for a sister. While I loved being a big sister to my younger brother (and still do), I desperately wanted a little sister to take care of and play with. On September 18, 1998 my wish came true.
During the week, I am all about quick and easy dinners. The last thing I really want to do when I get home from work is deal with a drawn out dinner preparation process and not get to eat until 8:00 PM or later. I’ll just wind up getting hangry, and that’s just not safe for anyone involved (the Firefighter in particular is a bit terrified of a hangry me). That is why we both love meals that are both ridiculously easy to put together and delicious.
When it came to a wedding gift for the Firefighter, I struggled for quite some time trying to figure out what to get him. I didn’t want to give him just anything, I wanted to give him something that would be meaningful and, ideally, be a gift that kept on giving after our actual wedding day. After a few weeks of brainstorming and browsing Pinterest it hit me – The best gift to give the Firefighter is the gift of quality time by coming up with one planned ate night each month throughout our first year of marriage.
