A Valentine’s Date

My husband is from ID and I’m from IL –we currently live in UT.  What does this mean?  Well, it means that Monet’s grandparents live very far away, and as a result, Josh and I go on very few dates without our daughter.  And in all honesty, that’s ok, I love hanging out as a family, all three of us.  But every once in a while, it’s nice for the focus to be on Josh and I, instead of our sweet little girl.  Selfish I know.

My moment for this week was when Josh and I went on a date, just the two of us, to a fabulous restaurant called The Cooper Onion.  The wine, the company, the conversation, the food, and dessert were all top notch.  I had the most lovely time, and in this moment, I was reminded of all the reasons I married my husband, and all the reasons we fell in love.

    Those one-on-one moments are very important. It’s hard when you have young ones, but as they get older will become easier and necessary. We make it a point to “ditch” the kids as often as we can. It’s good for everyone, all around.

    Glad you had a lovely Valentine date.

    I agree, it’s hard, but so important to get quality alone time. We call date night “marriage insurance” 🙂 I’m so happy you enjoyed your date. You deserve it!

    ANdrew & I sure do need some marriage insurance…although we get out more than we used to, it’s almost always for some sort of university function. We really don’t ever go out to eat or a movie or…??? just for the heck of it. I’m too much of a slave driver – if we’ve got free time, well I’ll fill it with some project or other!

    It gets easier to have time together the older your children get, less guilt and more initiative to enjoy just the two of you. So glad you had a great date! And I love Layer Cake Malbec–excellent choice!
