I’m a firm believer in dating your husband after marriage. Especially after kids! I really encourage you all to do so…Make sacrifices if needed. Buddy up with another family and trade off date nights and kid sitting once a month. Find a reliable teenager to come over after your kids are asleep to go grab a warm beverage and catch up on life. It doesn’t have to be elaborate. It doesn’t have to be costly. It doesn’t even have to be lengthy. It’s a valuable time set aside to keeping your marriage fresh. And please don’t let guilt take away from your time to pour into your relationship with your husband, as I have during the past 2 years.
Thankfully, the end of the summer has held several opportunities for Brad and I to sneak away, enjoy some peaceful conversation, and time to date. Which has been a true break from the intensity of quad parenting! Thank you family and dear friends! We cannot say it enough!
One of our favorite times together involved a relaxing dinner at Petite Chou. It’s such a charming cozy find! And their food is delightful! It currently holds my #1 Spot for Favorite Restaurants in the City. Brad and I split the Chicken Crepe with Asparagus and Mushrooms, along with their famous Frites (French Fries). I wish I were eating it right now!
And we just had to save room for dessert once we saw this on the menu…
Cowabunga! It was even better than it looks! A dessert crepe filled with mixed berries and topped with warm ganache and cream.
The Anticipation. The Bite. The Savor.
(Side Note: Petite Chou did not solicit this promo of their delightful eats, pay for our meal, or even give me a free T-shirt. My own stomach is doing all the talking.)
You don’t believe me?
How about now?
Yes, we are random….
And in love.
