One thing we've learned since becoming parents is that it can incredibly difficult to "get away" and spend quality time together. An entire husband and wife vacation getaway? Forget about it! A solid day of just the two of you? Probably not that either! We knew we'd be incredibly short on alone time once Linden arrived, so we've been making it a priority to sneak in little mini dates where we can.
Sometimes that means a quick 15 minute jaunt to Sonic for half-price milkshakes. Then just sitting side by side in the car, slurping them down while Toby spends time with his grandparents. It's a date even with a sleeping newborn in the backseat. Cheers for tiny pockets of togetherness! We're not above making a "date" out of a trip to Lowe's or Target, either. We do what we can.
How about you? What are your favorite mini "dates" to enjoy together? And yes, dates is in quotes because I know it's totally a stretch! haha
