Well I won't even bother counting the weeks it has been since I did my first Project 52 post! We will just stick with 'awhile'. Jon has been caught up in working a lot lately and has spent many days at work for 12+ hours. So anytime we did have together we were spending as a family since the kids have missed him a lot. And then once the kids went down, at least Jon (if not both of us) also hit the hay, too exhausted for any efforts towards a 'date night'. Finally though, now that things have started slowing down a bit at work, we decided it was time for some us time alone.
It has been awhile since we took advantage of our master bathroom's jetted tub, so we decided we needed some relaxation, in the form of a nice hot soak. Jon turned up the water heater so the huge bath tub would be nice and warm once full, and I lit a whole bunch of candles around our tub, including our favorite Yankee candles scents of Lemon Lavender and Vanilla Lime- both quite relaxing fragrances! I added some bath salts and blew up our bath pillow.
Then after the kids were down for bed we took a candlelit bath and talked. It was really nice to just soak in the hot water. We laughed and we talked, about many different things, including my favorite subject- baby names (no we aren't expecting or even trying, but we often disagree so I am always throwing names at Jon to see if he has changed his mind about some I like).
It was a short date night, since Jon couldn't take the heat very long, but it was nice to reconnect. It has been a long time since we just spent some time alone together to talk and enjoy each other's company.
We are hoping to do another date night at home Sunday night. Hopefully everything works out for that, we need to do some catching up on time as a couple!
