I highly recommend all couples to take a regular date night. It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life that you forget to take time to appreciate your spouse.
Last night Joe and I went on our first date since our Anniversary date (which is really the only date we’ve taken since Jude was born). Our dear friend Andrea watched Jude while we went to a preview showing of James Bond: Quantum of Solace. The movie was pretty good, everything happens so quickly it’s easy to get a little lost in the story but overall I’d see it again! I mean it is James Bond! One of the best parts was that it didn’t cost us any money to see the movie. I got free tickets for the preview showing from the N&O. I knew how excited Joe was about seeing the movie that when I saw the giveaway for free tickets I knew I had to get them. I stood in line outside the N&O office for an hour on Monday and scored 2 tickets!
We had a great time talking in the car on our way to and from the theater. It’s weird for me to ride in the car without Jude in the back. But I knew he was in good hands with Andrea. She’s getting in a little practice before her little guy arrives the end of January. She said Jude was good, which I was worried he would be fussy and cry the whole time but he slept and ate and had fun with Andrea and baby U.
I’m looking forward to planning more date nights with Joe. It’s nice to take a little break from life to be reminded how much I love that man!
