As Mr Teaspoon and I draw closer and closer to our wedding day, we are placing increasing emphasis on our "couple time". Everything is getting rather crazy at the moment between writing our personalised Prayers of the Faithful - which we are mighty proud of by the way, ordering our wedding rings, freaking out about the 2 week Australian customs strike - Etsy purchases being held up! So, we have definitely put an emphasis on our date nights, whether it is a night at home cooking a special meal together or a nice dinner out, it is just us being together and enjoying it.
One particular night we are already blocking out in the wedding craziness is the night before the night before our wedding. We are getting married on Saturday, so we are blocking out the Thursday night to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing night together. It is so lovely to spend time together just the two of us and really savour the fact that we are about to get married.
Our date nights usually involve us discussing our futures, our job prospects, our hopes and dreams - ok that is a little dramatic, but you get the idea. I really look forward to our date nights and amongst all the hectic wedding planning. Last night we went out and enjoyed a lovely meal of Nepalese - its like Indian but not spicy! Yum! Its so easy to find yourself getting caught up in life and not actually taking the time to appreciate each other and particularly with the huge step we are about to take.
