I have a few days off from work and so this morning I woke up with the idea that I was going to cook a candlelight dinner for my husband. I cook a lot, so the dinner part wasn't that far-fetched – but I actually went all out and actually showered on my day off and even got dressed! Trust me when I tell you, this is a big deal if I have no plans which involve leaving my house.

So I cooked, and I prettied myself and I played music and we ate and it was nice. So often, dinner is harried or I'm dressed like a hobo or we're eating at 10 o'clock – but tonight was special and sweet and I'm looking forward to dating my husband again.
