I remeber when I was a teenager I thought the perfect date was getting all dressed up, going to a fancy restaurant, maybe dancing afterwards. If he was really good he might bring flowers or a little gift. Not surprisingly I went to the Senior Prom (ball) 3 times! Two times with older dates who were going to their senior Prom, and the last time was my own Prom 🙂 White dress hair up, blue dress off the shoulder with a shawl, pink dress lot of curls and an artificial tan LOL!!!
Time went by and we grew up, and now the perfect date is so much more then it was in my teenage years. A perfect date can be a picnic on an island in the middle of a lake or fjord, it can be walking on the roof of the opera house, or a golf game for just us two. Today it was a bike ride in a charming country town in Sweden. (That is certainly someplace my prom dates never took me!) The wind blowing my hair, messing it up. Reminding me what its like to be alive, taking my breath away…making my heart pound. I remembered what it was like to go fast on my bike as a small child, and I had the urge to laugh into the wind.
Stopping we were breathless with a fresh glow to our cheeks. We enjoyed the local events, and seeing what the town has to offer on an early spring day. My date didn’t have on a tuxedo, but I didn’t care. He didn’t bring me flowers, but we shared the flowers, the birds, the sunshine together. He didn’t buy me a small present, but he has bought me a home.
Togetherness is what is important. Spending quality time together to keep the love alive and the child inside us all happy. What is your perfect date, share with us!
