So we had our engaged encounter this last weekend, Nov 5 - 7. I would have to say that it had it's moments of brilliance, humor, intimacy & respect. I mean who doesn't like hearing about old people making love and the twinkle in their eye after? ...... I do have to admit though, that it was a very, very good weekend. While PB and I have no problems with communication there was some very good tips, some great conversation, a lot of laughter and a weekend filled with just US time. We both turned off our phones, had no Internet access and just enjoyed the weekend like we were camping or away from society.
We will keep our workbooks & notebooks, it will be a nice reminder of the weekend and all we shared. I'm sure over the course of our lifetime we'll go through them and remember back to the fun of the weekend. I even kept the fun question I got to read out loud in front of 73 other people and then answer. I would give a summary of the weekend and things of that nature, but really, I'm going to pass on putting it here. This is all the summary it's going to be, as it doesn't need to be advertised here.
Let's just say that I'm glad to have gone through the weekend and feel much better after going through it. An experience I gladly will pass on to friends thinking of going through similar as I think everyone should do that kind of retreat before marriage.
