here we go--so i shaped the black beans and taco's into a heart, for the sweetheart. i also decorated the chalkboard with our menu and plans for after. hubby was so excited that i picked up some of his favorite beer, molson and we couldn't wait to snuggle on the couch with our favorite quilt, my grandmother made it for us for our wedding. it's amazingly soft and we always snuggle with it. i know i could have made this dinner at eight more special, planning more ahead of time, but it was just perfect for us.
as we all know how busy life gets-- i forgot about dinner at eight, didn't pick up everything i wanted to make the night special, forgot to make the heart banner in time, etc--but enjoying some husband time made me remember how important it is to step back from our busy schedules and just enjoy each other. i am so blessed for my husband. he has so much love and patience and today is the perfect day to appreciate that. you should plan a date night for your hubby and post your dinner at eight over at rebekah's blog, a bit of sunshine.
