date nights are the best, but sometimes especially after twelve years, it can kinda get repetitive.
you the know, the usual movie and dinner.
friday afternoon, while at work, i texted my husband and informed him i was taking him out saturday night. i felt like such a feminist! ha.
and immediately i knew we needed to do something different.
rollerskating is what popped into my head and so it was.
i didn't want to tell him about it though until we got there since i was afraid he would want to back out.
luckily, after much questioning i broke down and told him and he just responded with,
'alright, it's whatever you want to do.'
well then, rollerskating it is!
let me tell you, we were probably one of the three older couples there.
it was a middle and high school jungle hangout!
we just tried to look extra cool and not fall.. until i did.
a little embarrassing, but after that fall, it all came back to me, and i felt like i could be part of the roller derby girls.
no, not really, those girls are fierce!
overall it was really, really fun and different!
after we were pretty starved and ate to our heart's content.
the next morning we continued with breakfast and some really good conversation.
and right there (about to get a little mushy alert!), i thanked God for His blessings.
it hasn't been an easy road, but being able to sit there and talk without fighting over the smallest thing is long overdue, and so refreshing.
now i'm trying to think what should we do on our next date.
maybe sky diving?
what's your favorite part of date night?
