My true love gave to me 11 pipers piping, 10 lords a-leaping, 9 ladies dancing, 8 maids a-milking, 7 swans a-swimming, 6 geese a-laying, 5 gold rings, 4 calling birds, 3 French hens, 2 turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree.
On this eleventh day of Christmas, we’re also celebrating the anniversary of our first date eighteen years ago. I can’t believe it’s been that long! I was 26 and he was 34. Our daughters were 4, 6, 9, and 12. Now we have grandchildren almost that old!!! It’s been a wonderful, bumpy road building a life together.
We made a commitment for 2019 to have at least two official date nights a month. Tonight will be the first. We’re also making a commitment to get debt free, so we’ll be challenging ourselves to make the dates about spending time together and NOT about spending money. Tonight, we’re going to get library cards and check out the downtown area of our new city.
What are you excited about in 2019?
P.S. This is one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs. I’m a dork. I know. 😛
