Tonight was date night. I came home and changed out of my Friday outfit of school shirt and jeans and put on something a little dressier. My husband arrived home not long after and we headed to Hannah’s, the nicest restaurant in our town that caters to the college crowd.
What a wonderful evening! He had requested a quiet table so we had a big booth in the corner. A glass of wine, yummy soup, cedar planked salmon, lemon basil risotto for me. Tenderloin for him. We shared a piece of flourless chocolate cake (with violets on it!) for dessert with our coffees.
Quiet conversation and undivided attention to each other. A refresh and a reset after what’s been a long few months since 2017 began. Just what we needed.
