time well spent
I went out with my husband tonight. It wasn't a big planned date but it was time spent together with out our offspring--so I guess you can call it a 'date'. I was wearing make up--so that counts for something. ;-)
We were able to enjoy a very original evening for sure. Since my husband is now a bona fide member of the SAG union, he has the opportunity to participate in various union sponsored events. Tonight we went to a Q & A featuring Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo, discussing a recent movie they starred in. Afterward, there were delicious gourmet snacks and wine available, if you were so inclined.
It was in a small auditorium like setting, intimate and personal. We weren't out very late, which was nice. We were only gone for a few hours and were home in time to enjoy our kiddos before bed and tuck them in. The traffic, although annoying, was a bonus because it gave us more time to spend together, conversing, sharing ideas and thoughts, uninterrupted.
It was a really pleasant and unique night out.
Taking time to invest in your spouse, to really focus and listen, is lovely time indeed.A lovely evening is always time well spent.
