An Unexpected Date Night

My unexpected date night came with an unexpected phone call. I was told that I had won tickets to the Kelly Clarkson Concert!

A few days later when our tickets arrived in the mail the excitement grew.

I would not only get to see an amazing artist but also have a quiet car ride to and from the show toddler free.  Our son was left with amazing babysitters  (thanks again ladies!) and off we went toward Durham NC.

On the road trip to the concert the sky was filled with the most amazing sunset with deep purples and pinks.

We were able to talk about some important topics that will be happening in our lives over the next couple of months.

When we got to the concert we had to rush inside and find our seats. Soon the music began and we were able to have a couple of fun, no stress, no decision, no schedule, no worries hours.

As the rest of the theater snapped pictures, took videos, facebooked, and tweeted around us we just sat there and enjoyed the moment.

This unexpected date night allowed us to not only enjoy Kelly Clarkson and her upbeat and fun music but also to reconnect as a couple.

Planning date night will allow you and your spouse to have something to look forward to together.
