52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 31


Roger and I went on a date the other night.
We ate at our favorite local Italian joint up the road from us.

Empty wine bottles line the walls
with notes scribbled from past costumers.

We love reading all the messages left
from strangers telling us about
the wonderful nights 
 that unfolded in our booth.


We had one of those amazing meals that lasts for hours.
Where your senses are peaked 
and the conversation is easy and comfortable.

Sipping on cocktails and talking about our lives together.
We toasted to happiness, family, our future.


It was almost as if we were in a cave of sorts,
where the candle swayed
ever so slightly in our direction.


Where every single bite of food was delicious
and we took our time to savor the meal
while my husband teased me
about stopping to take a photo between bites.

We laughed and flirted
and found ourselves playing footsie under the table.


By the time dessert arrived,
my head was spinning a bit
maybe it was from the cocktails
or it could have been the food.

Really, I think it was from
having one of those romantic nights
that makes you remember why you married
your beloved in the first place.


Want to join me in my quest
to scout out happiness for a whole year?

Yes.. remembering why you got married in the first place should be the number one outcome of a great date night out!

Awwww, I loved reading this. It's so good to have that time together. To be able to go back to all those things that made you fall in love in the first place & keep those feelings fresh & at the surface. So healthy for a marriage.

Yum! We tried to do that this past weekend, but rather than have an enjoyable time away from the kids, I got sick...totally and completely unfair. We have yet to reschedule...but hopefully it will happen sooner than later!
