It’s been a few years since we’ve been able to make this happen, but today, on our 18th Anniversary, Matt and I got to go out on a date!
Why have we not gone out on an actual anniversary date in years? Because our anniversary always falls right during the busy part of soccer season. It’s pre-season for the college team he helps coach. That means there are three practices per day right now. And sometimes, he’s not even in town on our anniversary because he’s with the team on a retreat.
I am definitely not complaining. I know Matt loves me and we always try to find time later (like in November once soccer season is over!) to do something special in honor of our anniversary. Hey, remember what he did for me last year on our anniversary? Sweetest thing ever!
Well, last week, when we were talking about our anniversary, Matt said, “I think we just may be able to go on a date that day.” Fun! Between morning and afternoon soccer practices, and before I got very busy prepping the meal I was feeding the team tonight, we headed to the nicest restaurant in town for lunch together. (And he wore my favorite shirt. Not that you needed to know that. But it made me smile. It’s his black shirt. And it looks really, really nice on him. I’m done now.)
The boys stayed home by themselves and made tuna. So exciting for them. Matt and I? We had sirloin. Oh yeah.
And then we ran some errands together, because nothing says romance like delivering a library book and making a trip to the post office.
He dropped me back off and home, and headed off for soccer practice number two. That hour and a half I had him all to myself (in his black shirt)? Perfect.
