My Mom's Best Marriage Advice

Flavio and I have been together for 12 years. Whaat?!! Crazytown. And like any couple that's been together forever, you start getting lazy. We've got at least 50 years ahead of us and I want to keep the sparks flying, so we're going back to the best marriage advice my mom ever gave me: Go on a date night once a week.

My man is on board and we're starting today.

But this time we're doing things a little differently. This week, we're meeting AT the restaurant. Why, you ask? Because when we get home from work and get ready to go out together, we're usually in a rush to walk and feed the dog, put on deodorant, put on make-up, change clothes, I get in my Spanx and Flavio sees all my Victoria's no-longer-Secret underwear, Flavio brushes, gargles and spits and, alas... Marriage trumps Romance.

To change things up and set the tone for romance, we're meeting @ Alexander's in North Park for a post-work Italian dinner. I'm excited to get dressed up alone, spot him across the candlelit room, maybe at the bar, walk up and give him a kiss, and rekindle our courting days, once a week. Amore!

PS. We budgeted weekly date nights into our financial fast.
