Aging has its benefits. When one’s hair color becomes a little more silver, it’s a sure sign that you’re one of life’s seasoned veterans. The benefit I’ve enjoyed most is that my kids are mostly grown up, giving me the ability to take some of that energy and re-focus it on my spouse and grandkids. On a daily basis I find myself thinking of activities I can do with my wonderful wife. Thoughts of vacation getaways, live theater, movies and eating out are all things running around in my mind for just the two of us.
So, in 2018 we’ll be sharing ways to court your spouse again. We kick it off with a weekend getaway that’s only 90 minutes away from SLC and some under-the-sea live entertainment.
