Perfect Date Night

23 April 2013|

MC and I started a tradition when we got married to have weekly date nights.

We choose a night each week that is available and we set a date.
Our dates range from movies, dinners, bowling, games arcades, walks on the beach and anythign esle that interests us…

Last week we decided to do something very different –
have a takeaway dinner and champagne on our building site!
BEST date night ever!!

Our picnic basket and champers

There is no better feeling than sitting on your concrete “bedroom floor” looking out at the sea view, feeling the soft breeze, watching the sunset behind us and saying cheers to our new space.
So romantic and so exciting for this next chapter of our lives.
