Steppin' Out Saturday

Saturday night, Shawn and I stepped out for our first date night in months!!!  My cousin
came over and sat with the girls so that we could steal a few hours away for dinner and
grown up time.  I don't think I need to explain how nice it was to get dressed up and
steal a few moments away: most of us with children know how rare and special
these moments are.  But they are so important, so meaningful in a world where we
sometimes get caught up in work and responsibilities and take far too few nights
for ourselves.  Date nights are an investment in our marriage and our love for each
other, they leave us feeling closer and our souls rejuvenated, bringing us home to our
babies stronger and more united.  It was a wonderful night and I am so thankful for the
time I got to spend with my very best friend, my partner.
