Dara and I had an amazing evening tonight out and about around Uptown Charlotte. My mom watched the kids and that allowed Dara and I to go out on a much appreciated date.

Being parents of four, we don’t get many opportunities to go out like years past. It was so great to just sit across from her at a local burger dive called Penguin Diner. So much fun to be with my best friend and laugh, talk, eat and enjoy each other’s company. We finished off the night by getting dessert at Amelie’s French Bakery where we ran into a dozen people we love and cherish. Hours and hours of fun.

I love my wife. There’s no one on the planet that I would rather spend time with than her. Our relationship is a gift from God. I’m so grateful that we still love dating each other after 7+ years of marriage. What a great date night (thanks, Mom)!
