Date Night

Tracing the paths of the satellites across the evening sky with my husband...

Talking about aliens invading the earth...

Cracking open another beer...

Propping my legs on the cooler as I watch him shoot midnight hoops...

Reflecting on our past, our present, our future, our fortune...

Holding his familiar hand in mine...

Enjoying the peace and happiness of being with my best friend...


Date Night never feels as sweet as when it's unplanned and unfettered.

Over the top date nights can feel so rushed- yours sounds like it was perfect.

Beautiful, Tracey—your night sounded perfect. Love the watching satellites and the midnight hoops. Sounds like you scrawled inside secret time, when the people all around you were sleeping, when those you love were dreaming and it was just you and your friend, there, floating, alive and alight like fireflies, in the night. Yum.

Thank you so much for sharing :)

That was supposed to read "crawled," not scrawled. But maybe you scrawled too, there on your date night? Who am I to say??

oh you are so lucky - We NEVER get a date night! (we don't believe in babysitter's and grandparents are old)

Theresa, we were just in the backyard! No sitters required.

Wonderful! So glad you had some quiet, special time together.

We need a date night, just like that one! We never end up having date night because I hate finding, calling, paying sitters. Thanks for the reminder that I don't have to!
