A Perfect Date...

Late Friday afternoon I was on the phone with Dave and asked him if he was going to take me out on a date?! He said, well only if you put a cute little dress on! HA - I said bye, hung up the phone, and raced upstairs to the shower :) (now before you get weirded or grossed out by the fact that it was Friday afternoon and I had not taken a shower, I worked the night before and had just gotten up from sleeping not that long before :P)
I locked the door so he could not come in and see me - silly me, I felt like a schoolgirl getting ready for her first date except mine was to a man I see almost everyday of my life and have been married to for almost 13 years!! I must tell you that we had not been on a date in a very long time - probably almost a year, so it did feel kinda like a first date, to me anyway! Anyway I came down all dressed and ready to go! He was excited - hehe :)It truly was a fabulous night! We went to eat at California Dreaming which has amazing views right on the water and then we went and walked hand-in-hand on Folly Beach. It was such a beautiful evening!
We just enjoy God's creation so much - the sound of the crashing waves, the crazy noises of the seagulls (not that I am that big a fan of seagulls - haha), picking up seashells and treasures from the ocean! Ahhhh, this was truly bliss!
After a long walk on the beach, we headed back home but first was a stop to a nearby Sonic for some yummy dessert! For me, a Strawberry Limeade Chiller (oh my goodness, I love these things!) and a Reese's Blast for Dave.
It truly was a perfect date - the perfect dinner (I love California Dreaming's salads and the yummy she-crab soup), the perfect walk on the beach, a yummy dessert, with God's most perfect man for me!!!!!

Yep, the perfect date!
