For one of our first official dates, Big Red began by showing up with Jamba Juice. This alone would have made my day!
The two of us piled into the car and headed out. He was determined to keep the plans a secret. We jumped on the freeway, drove for miles, and eventually parked on some random street. After we got out the car, we rounded the corner and there was a theatre. He was taking me to see Into the Woods, in which I played the Baker's Wife in high school, so it's one of my favorites! It was in a small, cozy theatre and was beautifully done!
After, we headed out to Lucille's BBQ, which is one of my favorite restaurants.
It was the first of many perfect dates. He's taken me to a David Crowder Band (my favorite band) and Third Day concert, all the way out to Santa Cruz to see Jekyll and Hyde, to Palmdale to see Scarlet Pimpernel while I was pregnant, hiking, museums, the LA Arboretum, to see Wicked in LA for our anniversary, etc.

He still likes to plan things. He'll call my mom or a close friend to watch Karrots and then we'll go out and have some quality time together, usually eating and walking around some shopping center holding hands. With both of our love languages being quality time and physical touch, it's perfect! Especially lately with him working overtime. He's made a special effort to go out at least once a week, just the two of us.
Honey, thanks for making me feel so special by making the dates stress free since I'm not planning! I love spending quality time with you and that it's a priority for you. You make any activity fun and where I want to be. I love you!
