It's sublime. And I feel refreshed even just talking about it.
It's so nice to have time together just as a couple, and to get to feel young and fun out on the town now and then! I think little breaks from the routine of the day-to-day are essential for a good marriage, and I try to plan little excursions and date nights as often as I can.
Here are some of our cute friends who met up with us. And, by the way, in my defense, there is no graceful way to hold a NYE party favor for a photo. It always looks silly, no matter what.
What "couple traditions" do you and your partner enjoy? Some of my facebook friends have a "Wednesday night funny movie night" each week, which I think sounds so great.
