a date night refresher …

date night 8-14-14

It doesn’t happen often, but when it does it’s a nice way to reconnect as a couple.  My husband and I will be celebrating 15 years of marriage this October.  We have been together for 19 years as of this coming September and it is through all this time that I find we are still best friends with everything that has changed in our lives over all this time.

Last night was an adult escape for us.  Tickets to see Paul McCartney perform as the last show EVER at Candlestick in San Francisco.  What was even nicer for our date night, our eldest daughter’s birth mom is in town! So who better to stay and play with our girls while we get a night out?

I am a BIGGER fan of the Beatles and Paul than my husband but I know we both enjoyed the 3-hour long show, AMAZING!  The 2 hour+ drive gave us plenty of time to talk and laugh as we made our way from our home to the venue and then waiting in all the traffic for 49,000 fans to find parking!

Although we don’t get out much as just the two of us, I love when we do and can reconnect as the two adults we are.  As can be the case, our conversation was not dominated by talk of our girls, only bits and pieces.

It is important to have this time, just the two of us, it keeps us each whole and connected.

Can’t wait for the next time we can escape!
