Last night my husband made us steaks to celebrate a milestone we achieved with our financial goals. It’s not as sexy as saying we are debt free, (11/16/2015 baby) and it’s an important one.
I was really excited to eat the steak and have lots of conversation about the day, but before that I took my little girl to the mall so we could get some exercise and I could shop for shoes for her and for me.
As I was doing that, my husband was cooking with his cast iron skillet for the first time and as often happens when we do something for the first time, it doesn’t always go well, so it got a little smoky in the Haston Love Nest. When we came home (sans any new shoes) the smoke detector was going off and the smell of smoke permeated through the house and kitchen.
Due to the condition of the house, we decided to eat on the patio and it was great! Cool breeze, lovely atmosphere and the food was wonderful!
None of that would have happened if we had done things according to “plan”
We also decided to do it more often, again, it would not have occurred to us to do that if we hadn’t had to deviate.
I have posted about this before, and it’s still an important lesson that I continue to learn especially with a toddler running around the house!
Embrace the unexpected, it often turns out well.
Think About It.
