Last weekend whilst in Liverpool, Matt's Mum and Dad asked to have Darcy one evening (we're so thankful to have such keen babysitters) and since we had no plans, we hopped in the car to see what adventures would unfold.
Matt decided to take me on a little tour of all the places he went as a child. We had a stroll on Formby beach (pictured in Tuesday's post), drove on another who's name I've forgotten and then pootled up to Southport before driving home. Since I grew up in the middle of the country without a grain of sand in sight, it was a real treat to go to three different beaches in one evening. We didn't stay long on any of them as it was getting windy and the sun had gone in, but I managed a few snaps to remember the night.
It wasn't wild, it wasn't fast paced and it wasn't expensive but it was luxurious. When you have children/jobs/responsibilities, dedicated leisure time with one an other is so wonderful. Matt and I have been spending so much of it together lately (thanks to both sets of grandparents having a bit of Darcy time) and we have loved it. We don't like to ask people to babysit for us because we enjoy to have our daughter accompany us and we don't like to put people out, but I think I have started to value 'couple time' a lot more lately because it allows us to make sure we are reading off the same page and are both going in the right direction.
What do you do with your partner to stay in tune? Do any of you have dedicated 'date nights'? Your suggestions would be very welcome.
