Best Date Day

Last Saturday my boyfriend and I celebrated my birthday together. He didn’t tell me any of the plans; he just told me to be ready to go by 10:30 am. So at 10:30 he came to my cottage and picked me up, and we biked to my favorite restaurant deBoer’s together. After the delicious meal, we shopped at the Holland Farmer’s Market and bought some fresh food to prepare for dinner this week. I really enjoy the Farmer’s Market and all of the fresh and delicious produce. Following the 

Farmer’s Market, we stopped in his room, because he wanted to give me his present. 

I walked inside and saw a box wrapped in white wrapping paper. As I unwrapped it, I saw to my delight a pack of pink Nike golf balls. Lately we have been golfing a lot together and have enjoyed bonding while golfing. I was so excited to see the pink golf balls, and then he told me we had a tee time for 2:30. As we were about to walk out the door he opened his closet and  said, “oh yeah and by the way I got you a golf set too.” I proceeded by freaking out with pure excitement and joy! I could not believe he bought me a new set of club and golf balls! I had been using my sister’s golf clubs which she had since she was twelve. 

Matthias and I then went to Winding Creek to golf, and I loved the new clubs. I have already used them three times golfing, and it hasn’t even been one week! After we golfed, we showered and changed for dinner. We took a couple pictures together then headed to the Piper for dinner. I had never been to the Piper before, and it was phenomenal. The restaurant is located on Lake Macatawa. We ate outside and enjoyed a gorgeous view of the lake. After dinner, we stopped at Meijer to buy some supplies to make cookies. I baked us some cookies and we hung out with some people in my cottage. 

It was definitely the best date day I had ever experienced, and one of the best days of my life. I am glad I chose Hope and found such an awesome Godly man.

Enjoy your week!
