Who cares. It left us more time to talk. Before dinner we went to our new house and checked in on the progress of the remodel. It was cool to see Anne strolling through the construction zone in her “dress up clothes” – it was a romantic start to our date – and made me really think about what really counts regarding the house we are re-building. It’s not really about the architecture—it is really a design for how we want to live and love each other, and how we want to stay close to our kids.
The meal wasn’t as great as two weeks before – which will be a good reminder to keep trying new places – but the realizations that came with the dinner date were worthy.
