Being married with kids it’s difficult to get a date in AND if you finally do get one in it’s more than likely the typical dinner and a movie or some lame work event. Plus let’s face it, after being married for so long you kind of fall into a conversation routine from what your kids did that was soooooo cute that day or who the asshole of the day was at work . One Saturday night my husband and I decided we wanted to get out of the house with no kids. We didn’t have a plan that night just wanted time alone. We dumped our kids off with my mother in law and ended up at my go to place, The Domain. It was 8 pm so the stores were near closed all I wanted to do was walk around and have a conversation with my husband. We ended up at Starbucks because it was Pumpkin Spice Latte season and I have to take advantage of it when it comes around. We sat outside people watching, making up their names and what they did for a living. Like a cliché first date you see in a movie, we started a conversation about us. Not together but ourselves, getting to know each other again but how we have grown and changed for the better. As we have grown older our interest have changed and although we have flirted with new goals and ideas we never talked about in depth the dream behind it. We have always been crazy teenage in love with each other and have great communication but this cliché coffee date was like a first date all over again without the awkward first date jitters. This blog is the result of that date. A normal conversation and a new venture inspiration all under $10. We try to make this a monthly thing and I encourage you married couples or couples with kids to try it. Your spouse or significant other may just inspire you!
