Since we had no official plans tonight, I wanted to think of another date night that was either free or relatively free. So of course I go to my handy-dandy Pinterest Board called “Date Ideas.” I came across one that listed coloring as an idea.
The more I thought about it, the more I loved the idea of coloring for tonight’s date idea. However, I was trying to think of how to incorporate it into something other than just coloring. Sooo...
The finale consisted of Sparkling Cider (non-alcoholic, of course), peanut butter cookies, candlelight, and taking a picture of our land and making it into a coloring page to see how each one would color their own.
It was very interesting to see the differences. Brandon Baker took the approach of making it look more like the original, where as I added things to mine. His took maybe 30 mins or so...whereas mine took hours haha. Brandon had a more fun and relaxed time doing his. Whereas I had more of a perfectionist yet rewarding experience. His represents how he enjoys the simplicity of the land, whereas mine represents the things I look forward to the most when we are there: our house (living there), the barn and horse, the sunshine (which also represents God’s presence on our little piece of Heaven).
Either way, we both appreciated the outcome of our own artwork, as well as each other’s. Plus, it was fun being able to “color” our land, something that means so much to us vs just a random coloring page.
