This past Saturday, AMI and I went on a date. That was our first alone date since AOI was born 15+ months ago.
Some of our friends have been offering free babysitting but we always turned the offers down because we both didn’t like the idea.
But two weeks ago, when AMI learnt that he is going to Ghana for a work trip, he invited me on a date. We thought about it and we felt AOI is ready to have our trusted friend look after her for few hours while we went out for a meal and a chat. Really, to enjoy each other’s company without our sweetheart.
Hubby took me to a posh restaurant in the city.
I felt good. I thought about how I like dressing up and going out on Saturdays. In the car, on our way to the restaurant, I felt like my old teenage girl dating her boyfriend, now husband. I kept taking self portraits on my iPhone.cheesy, i know
We were giddy after the date and promised ourselves to go out at least once a month. But we couldn’t wait to get to our sweet AOI.
She had a great time with our friend and her daughter. She was tired when we got back home and went to bed minutes after we walked into the house.
In my giddy mood, I decided to snap some pictures of my make-up and I remember this picture I pinned
it inspired me to snap this self portrait
