Steppin' Out


This weekend, Shawn and I stepped out to celebrate our 11 year wedding anniversary!!
We honored our promise to each other to have at least one date night a month, all alone,
just the two of us.  I wore heels and my special perfume, Shawn held the door for me and
held my hand.  We went to the kind of restaurant you only go to once a year, dimly lit and
so romantic.  We sat close to one another, tucked away in a booth made just for two,
and talked about how lucky we are.  We ate the most delicious food and then he ordered
me strawberry cheesecake for dessert.  We had planned on seeing a movie but decided to
go home instead, ending our night in our pajamas on the couch, watching Inside the NFL
and enjoying the peace and quiet of sleeping children.  It was a magical night and I am such
a lucky girl.  Eleven years into marriage and he still gives me butterflies on date night.
Here's what we wore...
