A Special Restaurant Guide

 For Valentine's Day this year, I didn't want to get Danny "stuff." I'm sick of "stuff." We have too much "stuff." Don't you love the word "stuff?" It's a great Bible word.

Instead, I gave him something we can experience throughout the year. I put together an Ottumwa restaurant guide - it has individual pages with about 25 of places we can go eat and enjoy the evening together.

Some of them are favorite restaurants, places we love to go and mean a lot to us. Others are places we keep talking about but never go visit. Now there's no excuse. Better yet, there's no asking "So where do you want to go?" I don't know. Where do you want to go?" "I don't know ..."

To put it together, I cut an 8 1/2x11 piece of paper in four. My cover is just a quarter of an inc bigger on each side, just enough to overlap the edges and hide them.

Then I punched holes through the whole stack and tied it up with a pretty ribbon.

Inside, each page has the name of a restaurant, the address and a big box to check off and write the date we went to that place.

Now we're excited to go out to eat and try some new flavors in our community.
