Inspiration – Night Escape

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last night we managed to escape 😉  Date nights are adventure nights for us – we go new places sometimes, or revisit our favorites, it’s always spontaneous and we usually never know quite what we’ll end up doing until we find it.

Its fun to get dressed up sexy, I wore my go-to little black dress, naturally tousled hair, and black couture boots with heels.

In one of our old haunts, we found a new little fascinating place, Rio de Gelato, new for the area at least.  The owner and his wife and son run their family business, making everything authentically Italian and handmade.  The pizzas looked incredible, but since we’d already snagged some pizza at home before we left, we tried their delicious gelato.  The Italian owner was so sweet & interesting, he talked us through the art of making Gelato – and yes, it is an art!

It’s the “Day of Love,” to which my 3 year old says, “Sissy stuff!”  I kind of love-hate Valentine’s Day, I love being able to celebrate romance on a certain day (kind of anniversary-like), but bringing chocolate or flowers or making your love’s favorite cookies should happen more often than just one day a year, in my mind.  And for most people, they probably do.

In your light, I learn how to love.

In your beauty, how to make poems.

You dance inside my chest where no one sees you, but sometimes I do,

and that sight becomes this art.”
