Sharing thanks for a Date Night Out with my husband

Orchids from Planting Fields Greenhouse, January 2012

Loved these orchids! The orchid is a beautiful flower and it takes a talented gardener with a lot of patience to grow one. To allow something beautiful to grow, much care, love and nurturing is required. This is a nice metaphor for successful parenting. It's cold here today on Long Island. Normal temperatures for January. It feels cold because we have been spoiled with a fair amount of 50 degree days. Here are my thanks for today.

1) Thanks for a nice date night with my husband Spencer. We were adventurous and went out to eat at a new Thai restaurant. It was fun to do something new and break out of routine! The restaurant Thai Station in Merrick has been around for a few years, and I've been wanting to give it a try.

2) I'm giving thanks for the delicious Thai food I had tonight. I had Spring Rolls, a Thai coconut fried rice, and beef with asparagus in an oyster sauce. The food was amazing! I enjoy savoring amazing food, and this was the best meal I have had out in a while!

3) Thanks to my daughter Liz's encouragement I got a new haircut today. It's a cute bob, done by Supercuts.

4) Thanks for a fun Saturday. Enjoyed shopping at Target with my daughter Liz. We had such a nice day together!
