It's funny... when Jeff and I weren't married, we didn't really ever "date." We just kinda hung out and did stuff. And then we suddenly realized there was more to our story than we knew... and here we are.
When we get the opportunity to go out together, just the two of us, or out with friends, we are sometimes a bit stumped on what to do with ourselves. One of our best dates was an afternoon at the art museum. We've also gone bowling and played putt-putt. But generally speaking, our date nights are dinner a movie.
Sometimes I worry that it's too boring to just go out to dinner and go see a movie.
But then I realize that it isn't what we are doing that makes the evening special. It's the company. It's the time together. It's reconnecting. It's eating a meal without having kids complain about something, without having to keep kids entertained. It's going to a movie and not worrying about who needs to go potty or if popcorn is going to get dropped or if we can have Twizzlers. It's about us- taking care of ourselves and taking care of each other. It's about holding hands and sharing popcorn and laughing and talking and relaxing and just being together.
And that's exactly what we did.
