For our 7th date night as a part of Project 52: Date Nights, my husband and I went out to dinner at a local tapas restaurant.
I love going out for tapas. Ordering all the small plates makes dinner more interactive as we decide what to order and share the food. We have a few dishes we always order like the goat cheese in tomato sauce and grilled calamari. We ventured out and tried the marinated artichokes and a chicken dish with an amazing sauce. All the back and forth really spurred our conversation and we had a fabulous time.
I have tried to schedule one date out a month, and I think that has really made an improvement in our relationship. There is such a rush of freedom in being out just the two of us. It is wonderful to be able to talk for a period of time where we can get beyond the regular "How was your day?" conversation and just talk feels so luxurious. I hope we do it so often that the luxury becomes commonplace.
