Kris and I work into our schedule a weekly date night, unless he is flying all week trying to buy momma a new pair of shoes, of course. We love date nights. We talk. I laugh a lot. He holds my hand. And, from time to time, I discover something about him I’d never known before. I like that.
We don’t’ really use this time to discuss our stuff. You know, our “issues”. Those are usually reserved for times after we put the kids to bed in our living room. We like for date nights to be about enjoying each other and that occasional new discovery. Not me pointing out to Kris how I need him to do this more or that less, thus, making the date night about me and not each other. Read me?
I feel like I know Kris pretty well. Of course, there was this recent moment where I watched the third installment of Pirates of the Caribbean for the one-hundreth and seventy-ninth time. After the credits rolled, my friend pointed out that Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan had a son. How did I miss that? How did Kris miss that? So, I called Kris to let him in on the little secret, and he said, “I know.”
How could he not have shared that with me? It’s like I don’t even know him.
You see? Always room for discovery.
Kris Takle, I get the joy of rediscovering you. I’m forever yours, faithfully.
Now, let’s end this blog before the lines get even cornier.
What’s your idea of a perfect date night?

When i saw the title and knew that it was about date night i just knew that you were referring to “Lovin’ Touchin’ Squeezin'”!! But no.
I LOVE date night. Love it Love it.
Every Sunday night, after we put kids down, John goes to Chilis after I have called it in and picks us up dinner. We get the same thing and know the girl on the phone. She even asks where we have been if we miss a Sunday.
We pick a movie – we chat – we eat – then we……
Anyway – we also go out frequently, but right now weekends are occupied with finishing the house, so Sunday it is.
I love it – no matter how busy things have been, I know we have our Sunday date night and when things are finished at the house, we will add another “go out night”….
I wonder what they do for date night in Luther?
