Love Dare'ing in New York City

Hi folks, here's a picture of Kelly and I during a recent spontaneous trip to New York City. It's sad to some degree that we had to get away to New York to spend some time together, but I wanted to do something special. As you are probably aware if you know us, or if you have kids of your own, schedules are so hectic that sometimes you wonder at the end of a day if you even said or done anything of consequence that was meant to build your marriage!

Kelly had actually said all during the Rays season how much she wanted to go to more ball games (Yes, I do have the most amazing wife in the world). So, I decided to surprise her with a quick trip to New York to see the Statue of Liberty and catch the 1st Yankees playoff game at the new stadium.

I want to challenge you husbands on something... although your wife may say that you don't need to do anything big for her, don't believe it. She is just such a nice and caring wife that she probably doesn't want to tell you what to do!!! Realistically, you cannot do big things all the time, but your wife deserves something big and unexpected every once in a while. It doesn't have to be an expensive trip to New York to sweep her off her feet again. In fact, I was pretty cheap on this trip because the flight was covered with frequent flyer points, the hotel was covered with points and the Yankee tickets were acquired through a special contact I had.

Just surprising your wife by scheduling a babysitter on your own and taking her out to a nice dinner and movie will do the trick. Think about it guys, what extra effort can you put forward to make your wife feel like the princess that she really is.

Until next time... In Christ,
- Steve
