Date Day

5 12 2009

Shortly before Ed took his tumble, (which radically changed our life style), we had re-instituted a date night. It is far too easy to take each other for granted after 27 years of marriage so, we dedicated twice a month to us and nurturing our relationship. And then…. well, let’s just say date night was out of the question for a couple of months.

Recently, we have started to date again. It is a clear indication that Ed is mending very nicely.  Long walks downtown are out but short walks from the car to the movie theater work well. A drive downtown works well. Dining out is a nice touch. A visit to Barnes and Noble for a coffee and a book is good outing for us. We discovered that Antonio’s in Leland has trivia night on Tuesdays. If you know Ed, you know that he loves trivia and Italian food, so that right there is a win / win date night.

Today, we went to a movie and then to Atlanta Bread for a bite to eat. On the way home, we stopped at Fresh Market and bought a couple of ‘kitchen sink’ cookies. They are so good that they never make it home. We give in and eat them in the car on the way out of the parking lot.

One of the things that never fails to make us feel the Holiday spirit is a trip to the Carolina Opry for their Christmas Show. It is always a visual delight with the beautiful costumes and creative lighting. I just ordered our tickets for December 18th. We will make a day of it in Myrtle Beach. We may even look for a place to get cannoli and cappuccino on the way home. Can it get any better than that?

Sounds super fun to me! We all have to remember to make time to “date” each other and not let life get in the way of what is most important. You two and your obvious love for each after so many years together are so inspiring to us young people. Thank you.
