So the hubby and I decided that a date night in was in order, because despite being in the house and social distancing we do spend a lot of the time on our phones, playing games, or doing things that require interactions with objects that are not each other. We love each a lot, but the internet really takes a lot of our attention away.
Solution was to have a date night every other Saturday. Despite saying date night it was more like date day. We woke up in the morning had breakfast and coffee together and had an actual conversation together. I did read for a while, while he did his own thing but we ended up making dinner together.
Dinner was nice, a ribeye steak shared, with garlic roasted potatoes, and asparagus. We don’t usually eat like this, but this was a special day so we spent the extra to make this special. It was great, we also opened a bottle of wine, put our phones on silent and once again just had a nice conversation with each other.
I ate all of it, Even though my plate was loaded. We also spent the time earlier and hand dipped some strawberries in white chocolate to snack on while we watched a movie. We choose Deadpool 2, and yeah I know not very romantic but it was entertaining and that is all that mattered. We also shared some chocolate mousse pie which I don’t have a picture of but was so good.
Taking this time to just be with each other and talk without our phones just renewed not only our relationship with each other but also just our mental health. You don’t realize how much time you spend on the computer, or your phone and when you spend some time off and have a conversation face to face it does wonders.
