Coffee Break ~ Date with Husband at Home

I hear the words "date night with my husband" a lot lately and I pondered over the many complications with schedule, baby-sitting and expenses that it might bring. Somehow, it doesn't sound so glamourous after that.  Have you ever considered creating a place of peace in your own back yard that can give your husband and yourself a few minutes to catch up on the events of the day or the family situations in your life?

We have a "Friday 4 o'clock cup time" in our home.  It really is something we look forward to and gives us the extra "energy" to stay up a little later on Friday's to make it more special. Our little refuge is always there, a baby-sitter is always on the premises and a few tablespoons of ground coffee are all you need to have that special moment with your beloved.  So the next time the day is taxing and the labor is exhausting, brew a few cups and give your relationship a little something to quench it's thirst and warm you up!

  1. This is a good idea. When you wrote it, I had littles at home. Now, the two that are still here are in college. I do remember one anniversary, we decided to splurge on a sitter. That was a once or twice a year thing. Just a little before it was time to go, my toddler came down with a fever. The sitter was canceled. The child was cared for and put to bed, and my husband picked up Chinese on the way home. We set a tiny table in our bedroom where we could listen for my son, and ate by candlelight. It was probably the most memorable of our anniversaries.

    1. Those are the sweetest memories, the un-planned ones :)
