Mrs. R.J. Harman

This past weekend we had the privilege of coordinating an amazing wedding.  This is the bride.  Every bride is beautiful and none more so than your very own.  We love being a part of the beginning of married love.  With all the plans which take months to insure their dreams come true, our purpose is to be there for the “happily ever after.”   A wedding is hard work.  It takes hours to make sure every detail has been thought of and planned.  But marriage is even harder.  We can’t expect our years together to be easy, and if you know this beforehand it will make the difficult years easier to endure.  Our friends, Stu and Lisa Gray with The Stupendous Marriage blog,  have an excellent post which addresses the whole issue of longevity in marriage.  We highly recommend it to you.

We have also just ended our Ultimate Blog Challenge to post everyday during the month of July.  It has been good, but quite a challenge.  We are grateful for the many new couples who have joined our community.  We pray you’ll make yourself known by commenting and adding your wisdom to our archives.  The Romantic Vineyard exists for all couples desiring to grow their marriage for the glory of God.  He will help you as you humbly pursue Him.  We know because He is the reason we have anything to share with others.

If you’re looking for something special to celebrate this week – we have you covered. 🙂

♥ Fun Dates To Celebrate ♥

First of all August is Romance Awareness Month as well as National Picnic Month.  So make plans to have at least one romantic picnic this month.

August 2nd

  • National Ice Cream Sandwich Day – surprise your spouse by making your own with these recipes.

August 3rd

  • National Watermelon Day – have a seed spitting contest for fun.

August 7th

  • International Forgiveness Day – make amends if you are harboring unforgiveness.  If it’s too big to conquer on your own, purpose today to seek the help you need to resolve this conflict.
  • National Lighthouse Day – visit a local lighthouse.  If you’re not near the coast – watch a movie with a lighthouse featured.  Here’s a great list of lighthouse movies with the names and locations of the lighthouses featured.

♥ Things To Do In Orlando ♥



  • Sanford – Jazzed in Sanford is a FREE outdoor concert which will take place on Saturday, August 6th from 4p – 7p.


  • Leu Gardens – Date Night in the Gardens features a movie shown under a starlit sky on Friday, August 5th.  This month’s feature is Twilight and the cost is $5 per adult – FREE for Garden members.  Pack a dinner with blankets and chairs for a romantic evening.
  • Deland – Tropical Storm Nights on Friday, August 5th from 6p – 9p.  FREE. Everyone’s favorite tropical street party gets a second chance! Tropical Hammer Steel Drum band will be back along with the Crazy Hat Contest, limbo, hula and merchant specials!


  • Kissimmee – Blue Grass Jam Session at the Osceola County Historical Society on Sunday, August 7th from 1:00 – 3:30.  FREE.  Bill Monroe, a bluegrass pioneer said, “…It’s blues and jazz, and it has a high lonesome sound. It’s plain music that tells a good story. It’s played from my heart to your heart, and it will touch you. Bluegrass is music that matters.”

What are your plans for this week?  Share with us your special date night – we’d love to hear about it.

  1. Debi, Thank you once more for offering information on fun events. I have out of town company so I will miss them all, but look forward to what is happening in the coming months. :-)))

      Janie, I can’t tell you how many times we have missed some of the things we would love to do around Orlando. We hope and pray you enjoy your company, but also enjoy time together on a great date night! 🙂
