late date nights.

Romantic dinner


We don' have many nights together. Sometimes we get caught up in the schedule of life and the kid's routines that we forget to set aside time for ourselves. Our "late night dates" used to happen more often, but as our days became busier we became tired. Friday we decided to go back to this special tradition. Jon got out of the restaurant early (around 10:15pm) and brought home a delicious treat: short ribs spring rolls with a hoisin dipping sauce, roasted beets with skorthalia, a fresh field greens salad and lobster accompanied by a tasty Chardonnay to go with those lobsters and a Cab.

We stayed up late, we listened to music, we held hands and sipped our wine. It felt like the old times when dates came before soccer and house chores. It's been decided, we're making this old tradition part of our busy routine.

  3. That sounds so adorably sweet! Glad you found time to be together. I can only imagine how hard it must be with the busyness of raising kids!
