Date Nights

I'm not sure exactly when it happened, but at some point in my twenties, my "ideal" date night changed.  Mind you, I have never really been one for expensive restaurants or fancy things.  I do enjoy being spoiled every now and again, but with my main love languages being quality time and words of affirmation, my ideal date is simply hanging out and talking.  I guess that's why when my husband asked me on our first date, and he wanted to skip the movies to simply sit and talk over lunch at a park, I was kind of head over heals from the start.  So, with the big love day coming closer and closer on the calendar, I wanted to share a favorite date that I missed posting from the close of the summer.  Now that we have kids, we rather like spending time with them - and I know a lot of my mom friends that have that same thought.  So, when my husband wanted to return to the place of our first date with our kids and a picnic for his birthday, I was all on board.  And although you might not be able to head to the park or beach with your family this upcoming Valentine's Day, I hope this has you thinking about a meaningful way to spend time with the ones you care about the most.  Especially if that means celebrating family time together and building lifelong memories.  (And if it has you wishing that you could have a documentary photographer tag along with you to catch it all too, shoot me an email - I'm all on board for that as well!)

So glad to have these times and memories with my people.  Hope you enjoyed.

Until next time,


  1. What a wonderful documentation of your time together with your family.

  2. Sandy little butt! Our first date was Dave n busters...
