When we started dating 6.5 years ago, date nights were often at smokey bars with lots of friends and loud music. These days, it's just us with quiet looks that took the past many years to develop.
There's such a comfort in just us- no loud crowds, no need for anyone else to have our attention- just a simple night that is extraordinary because we get to spend it together. Dare I say that date nights are better, sweeter, than they first were... even when they end with me overcome with tears in the car when she plays our song on the iPod. Yep, I'm THAT girl. ;)
