We purposed to put the kiddos to bed by 8:30. I did a quick sweep of the living room area and decluttered a bit. My husband had picked out the movie for us. I was surprised when he told me he chose “The Help.” I had never seen it, and I knew it was a pretty girlie movie, so I never asked him to watch it with me. This is what I love about my husband…when I asked him why he chose this one, he replied, “It’s got things we both enjoy: comedy, drama, history, takes place in Mississippi, and (for him) an aspiring author.” I really love that man.
It was wonderful. I mean, most nights we sit in our bedroom after the kids are in bed and watch tv together for a little bit, but just the simple change of venue made a difference. We snuggled up on the couch and laughed together. (Several times so hard that I feared waking the kids.)
Date 1 – Success! 🙂
