Jenny and I are tucked away from the world. It’s a wonderful feeling. My iPhone is sitting on my bedroom bookshelf back home, enjoying the “off” position. And my brain is relishing the rare state of doing nothing. No demands, no questions, no missions. Just answering How long do I want to sleep? And Where do I want to eat?

I just finished a wild, gritty sci-fi novel by Marko Kloos (my “candy” / Warning: language), and halfway through Culture of Honor by Danny Silk (my “meat”).

Excited for our marriage’s new commitment to the Seven Policy: a date night every seven days, an overnight every seven weeks, and a vacation every seven months. This is on top of getting away with our four minions during the summer.


  • Jason Clement

    Enjoy! Love the “Seven Policy” idea!

    • Thanks bro. It was awesome, and really looking forward to holding to this pattern. You guys should too.

  • It’s so inspirational that as much as you two give yourselves to others you still make time to strengthen your marriage! πŸ™‚ love you both!

  • Yes!

  • AnneMarie

    oooh, where’s the 7 month vacation going to be?

  • Rest well, me broski!

    • It was wonderful, and I rested well.

      Found an incredible Maibock made from the same house that crafts Ubu. Yum.

  • Minions, mwahahaha…. πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

    • I want to buy little sets of goggles and blue coveralls for them. πŸ™‚
