Being a stay-at-home mom to 3 busy little boys can be down right exhausting at times. There are moments when I just want to run out the door and aimlessly wander the aisles of Target. I’m always sneaking little moments away from everyone and everything in an attempt to regroup. I long to be alone but at the same time motherhood can be very lonely. I love my children dearly but being responsible for the livelihood of another person is overwhelming. So it is very very very important that Joe and I go on dates to regenerate and reconnect. Dating my husband gives me the social connection I need after a long week of giving myself over to the needs of some very cute but very demanding little people.
Yesterday my mom watched the boys while Joe and I had a date night in downtown Raleigh (or as Jude calls it “The City”). Quality time with Joe is very important to me. It’s difficult to have meaning conversations around the dinner table these days and even though we spend time together every night after the kids have gone to bed there’s something about getting away from the piles of laundry, to-do lists and the comfort of our own home that helps us connect. The topics of our conversations bounce from current events to life goals, Indiana Jones to Biblical revelations, school plans for our kids to delicious food. We have been married for 6 years and the more time I spend with Joe the more I fall in love with him.
I truly enjoying getting to live my life with this man. I love dating my husband.
