While I might be spending Valentine's Day working all day and eating takeout Thai food for dinner, my husband and I managed to sneak away for a rare date night a few weeks back. The night was such a welcome respite from our regular routine. Since having a baby, the smallest things can feel like luxuries. Taking a shower where I can take the time to use shampoo and conditioner. Sleeping for more than 4 hours straight. Leaving our place on a whim, without lugging around a huge bag full of stuff and a stroller. These were considered "givens" at one point pre-baby. What about a night out to eat dinner and to watch Wicked (definitely one of my favorite musicals of all time!) with just the two of us? That's like winning the lottery! Sure, I called my mom after dinner, before the show, during intermission, and after the show to make sure the baby was safe and sound. We still enjoyed every moment of our night out!
