What a crazy month! There are still plenty of highlights to share, so here they are – in chronological order.
We started out the month by going to hear my all-time favorite Southern Gospel group, Brian Free and Assurance. They sang in a Baptist Church about 45 minutes away from us on a Sunday night, so we drove over there and enjoyed hearing some good gospel music! One of my favorite songs of theirs is extremely appropriate for right now, both with Easter and the current situations in the world: Never Walk Alone.
On March 10 Paul officiated a Lacrosse game at Furman University here in Greenville. I had to stop by and pick up something from him, so I watched a little bit of the game and snapped this picture while I waited.
Neither of us knew that the remaining 2/3rds of his season would be cancelled three days later. Lacrosse is a huge part of Paul’s life – I’m very proud of him for how hard he’s worked to advance in this sport. I am so thankful that God cares about the things that matter to us. He knew that this would be Paul’s last week and it was no mistake that I just happened to stop by and snap a photo of him on the field. Isn’t God so good to all of us? ❤
We decided to try a new restaurant for date night that week. This was March 12 – the pizza was okay but not great. If I had known it was going to be our last “restaurant” date night for the foreseeable future, we probably would have gone for Mexican instead! 🙂 Our new favorite thing to do on dates is to quiz each other with Buzzfeed trivia, so we had a good time working through a few of those.
I was sure that the Frozen Jr. show we were planning to attend on March 15 would be cancelled, but it wasn’t! We have enjoyed the shows our local children’s theater produces and were really looking forward to the one hour version of the Frozen musical.
It was performed with an even younger cast than their other shows and I was amazed at how well those elementary school kids remembered lines, choreography and music!
As we were walking back to the car I told Paul that I wondered if this would be our last date night “event” for a while. About two hours after the show ended, our school district announced that school was closed…and everything began to shut down. Life changed so quickly that weekend, and I’m extra thankful that we got to enjoy a fun time out together!
Since then I’ve been working from home, and I’m very thankful to be able to do that! I’ve been using the time in the afternoon when I’m usually driving home to practice the piano, and I’ve shared a little of that on Instagram (here and here). Playing the piano has always been therapeutic for me, and there is so much comfort in the old hymns!
Because Paul’s schedule majorly opened up, he’s been working on loads of house projects and getting our yard ready for summer. I’m loving that, too! We had our first “at home” date night this week with frozen pizza and a movie.
