We had a real date this weekend. It’s been a few weeks since we had a real one where we hire a babysitter and actually go out somewhere. It was so much fun to go to the movies and walk hand in hand with my husband. It made me feel giddy.
But the next night was even better. After we put the little dear to bed Saturday night, we made some frozen hot chocolate and snuggled on the couch while we sipped and talked with absolutely no agenda.
Our conversation soon found it’s way to the topic of ourselves 5 years ago- pre marriage. We laughed and smiled while we reminisced about the silly things we did to get each other’s attention. We described and re-enacted the first kiss, the second kiss (which was way better), and the third kiss (which was truly magical). We marveled at how incredibly easy it was to be in each other’s company right from the start. We really could have gone on and on about ourselves to each other.
It was wonderful. It made me fall in love all over again.
Next time you don’t know what to do for date night, use this easy date idea: make absolutely no plans except to reminisce about your courtship- no matter how long ago that may be for you! It’s truly refreshing!
I couldn’t find any pre-marriage pictures on our computer. This picture is pre-parenthood, which can also be a fun subject.
