First Dates 9 Years Later

Today marks 9 years of Chris and I being the crazy pair that we are. And, even after 9 years of love, my incredible husband still knows how to take me out on a "first date". Last night, he took me to one of our favorite restaurants downtown for a bottle of wine and some incredible Italian food to celebrate our relationship and our new life together as parents. It was our first time going out on a date alone since Sofia was born. While it was hard to leave the little bundle of love at home with our friend Matt, it was wonderful rediscovering why we do love each other so much through candlelight and conversation. He is my best friend.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I can't remember who said this, but someone did....." The best thing a father can do for his children.....is to love their mother." Good for you two for knowing your time together is important and for honoring your commitment to each other and to your relationship. You're making an important transition into a new phase of your partnership, and I'm proud of both of you.
Love you lots,
Mom
