I have two words: Battleship and Smore’s dip.
You know, the notorious and completely nostalgic guessing game that exterminates your fleet of ships, dawning a mix of heart palpitations and childhood bliss only amnesia could erase. Plus this ingenious remix of deconstructed smore's had me swimming in delight. Decadent dark and milk chocolates layered together and topped with airy marshmallows, toasted to perfection and scooped up by those slightly sweet but exquisitely crisp grahams. Seriously - all the feels.
“Date Night In” is the epitome of relaxation for me. The introvert in me bursts with delight as I relish the evening of creativity I am endowed with. The PNW girl in me has a deep devotion for cozy sweatshirts and snug slippers that I get to burrow into - although, according to my hubby, the socks are kinda nerdy 🙂 Whatever the reason, for me, “Date Night In” releases the potential to cultivate a vast array of fresh flair and old school throw down’s; like Battleship and smore’s dip.
Adam and I are in an intentional season of reaching towards each-other; remembering why we fell in love. I’ve been honest about this from day #1 - our connection hasn't been effortless but it has been fruitful. I used to belief that marriage should be “uncomplicated” or “easy” and if it wasn't - something was wrong. I now understand that everything we do in life, especially in our marriages, has two options: unintentionally drift apart or intentionally bond stronger. There is no in-between. And the latter, we have to fight for.
We’re best friends and love each-other deeply, yet it can be so easy to forget why we chose one another and let the “little annoyances” steal our connection. Nights like this are the perfect reminder - plus I love how excited he gets when he wins (we actually tied ;)) Hence me hiding my face and then laughing so hard... I was so close to winning! It was a great way to move towards one another.
How do you do “Date Night In?”
