I wouldn’t consider Jeremy and I to be silly. We’re far more inclined to spend the evening in a serious debate, working on new ideas for our ministries, or casting vision for our future. Sometimes I think we need to schedule “play dates” instead of “date nights.” Our date nights often become work brainstorming sessions??♀️ If any of you married couples out there run businesses or ministries together, I’m sure you can relate. We try to set boundaries on date night - no bringing up big looming decisions, finances, work, you know... the stuff grows the gray hairs? But we fail. Sometimes I think we need to just lighten up. Read a novel instead of the news and self-help... Watch a comedy instead of apologetics, mysteries, and documentaries.... Give each other our undivided attention, instead of constantly multitasking... Maybe we just need to stop idolizing productivity and give ourselves permission to play. Maybe you need permission to play too? Who cares if it’s cheesy! Dress up in matching PJ’s, have a tickle fight, or suspend yourself in the air balancing on your husbands feet;) Let’s not undermine the value of playfulness. And yes, my postpartum abs thanked me for this picture;) ?#beating50percent #stayingido #journeyofjerandauj ? @dawn_photo
The 26-year-old wrote one of her signature thought-provoking captions under a photo of her and Jeremy playing "airplane" in matching holiday pajamas last week.
In it, Audrey revealed that she and Jeremy have been trying to schedule play dates for themselves due to their serious nature.
"We’re far more inclined to spend the evening in a serious debate, working on new ideas for our ministries, or casting vision for our future. Sometimes I think we need to schedule 'play dates' instead of 'date nights.' Our date nights often become work brainstorming sessions," she wrote.
Some fans feared for the young married couple, saying that they already seem worn down despite only having been married for a little over three years.
"It could help to stop over thinking everything," one fan advised. "Just have fun & be spontaneous!!!"
"Too young to be so serious," another said.
Other praised Audrey for being so real about the state of her marriage just months after giving birth to her first child, daughter Ember, in September.
"So true, take time for each other," one said. "Every couple needs that."
"Soooooo trueeeeee," another added.
