Date Night with the Hubby – Part One

5 Sep

Last night, I left the babies with grandma and grandpa, and went on a date night with my husband. We went to Olive Garden and ate the never ending pasta bowl – it was amazing, and there are even leftovers tonight. 🙂

I have talked before about how important it is to spend alone time with your spouse and get away, even if just for a few hours. Although we have been married for almost seven years and have two kids, I believe that it is SO important for us to re-visit the days when it was just the two of us.

Yes; we love our babies, but we also love each other, and time alone helps us to focus on each other and rekindle our love. We laugh, flirt, and act like we’re on our first date. We people watch, joke around, and tell each other about our future dreams.

No; we’re not a perfect couple. We don’t always agree on everything. But I think we’re finally to the point where we realize it’s just less stressful to “agree to disagree,” and go on to the next topic of conversation. 🙂 Trust me, we didn’t start out like this, but we’ve learned it over time. It is so much easier just to accept your differences and not get mad over them.

Marriage can be an amazing thing, and it definitely helps to have alone time. That can be after the kids are in bed, or for a few hours after work. Spend time together where you’re not talking about work or bills. Gaze into each other’s eyes and enjoy each other’s company! Never forget what first attracted you to your spouse!

Look out for part two where I’ll talk about the journey of learning to agree to disagree! 🙂

Blessings,

Lauren
