Can't Stop Smilin'

Last week my friend, Sara, came up to me and told me to pick a night this week for her to come play with the kids so Josh and I could go out on a date.  I was so excited.  It has been a long (GREAT, but long) month and most of the time we are without the kids we have a band rehearsal or a gig so this was really special.

We got out our Entertainment Book and looked at our options.  We chose Brixx Pizza in UpTown Charlotte followed by the coolest Starbucks in Charlotte.  It's in an old house and has such a cool atmosphere.  We hardly ever go out to eat so this was such a treat!

Nothing fancy or extravagant.  Nothing pricy.  We were only gone a couple of hours.  Just quality, one-on-one time with my man.  It was such a GREAT feeling to have an uninterrupted conversation with my best friend.  It was such a GREAT feeling to know my kids were being taken care of by someone they love and that they were having a great time and that they were HAPPY that their mommy and daddy got to go on a date.

What a blessing that was to us!  I just couldn't stop smiling last night=)
