I read something the other day about marriage and it really stuck with me… If you put your spouse first your marriage will last a lifetime. It went on to say that the best and most helpful thing that you can show your kids is a healthy partnership between you and your husband. What better thing could you show your kids than two parents who work as a team, make an effort to love and care for each other, who show each other respect and genuine affection? And I don’t know about you, but I’d love to still have a great marriage and relationship when the girls are off to college and we’re back to just Ashley and Wyatt. So if you want your marriage to be a great one, put in the time and effort to get the result. And I’ll be honest, this is something that we’ve probably been slacking on a little bit just due to 3 years of babies, never enough time for everything and stress over money since I’m pretty much a stay at home mama these days. But we’ve definitely been thinking about this and planning date nights, hoping for mama and papa trips only in our future and more. It’s totally the thought, intentions and effort that matter.
So when we got the chance to work with the Amburgeys on a photo shoot in Gold Canyon, AZ a couple of weekends ago we turned it into a little adventure and date night. And let me tell you, I want to make the insanely long drive again to go hiking. It was seriously the prettiest desert I’ve seen in AZ! And we live by some of the most gorgeous mountains but this location was unreal. It was about 25 minutes of windy dirt roads past Gold Canyon in the Superstition Mountains and it was so far back there that for a second we thought we got lost. So instead of hiking all loaded up with gear I ended up hiking in an Anthropologie BHLDN dress that was stunning and Wyatt was hiking in leather soled dress shoes and a suit. We got some pretty strange looks but these pictures were worth it. Thanks Katrina for letting us act like a freshly married couple and introducing us to this romantic, most perfect spot ever. We had the perfect date night and the photos to prove it.
