Date night

Miracle of miracles! My husband and I had an actual, real-live date last weekend! And we discovered some fun new things to do that are definitely adults-only!

Celebrations of the heart

In the cabinet, on the top shelf, lives a sparkly red heart-shaped plate. It is extra special and is reserved for extra special moments.

Casting a wide net
