Date Night With Someone Special
Saturday night I had the good fortune to spend some long over due quality time with an intelligent, funny, beautiful, and most of all modest woman named me. I mean Jessa. What I mean to say is I'm referring to myself. I may have been playing it a little loose with the word intelligent.
I spent the entire evening wining and dining myself. I should specify the wining involved drinking half a glass of wine. Actually, it wasn't even wine it was a wine cooler. I'm not much of a drinker, but somehow my usual milkshake just didn't seem appropriate. I like wine glasses though. I drink water from one all day long just for the fact it seems a bit more eventful.
The thing about date night with yourself is it is not the same as a spa day or a slumber party with yourself. Wow, it just occurred to me I'm a bit of a loner. Either that or I like myself a little too much. Moving on though, the important thing about date night is to treat it like a date. This means getting dressed up, making or going out for a nice meal, and spending time savoring the conversation. You may be surprised by what finds it's way into your head as you treat yourself to decadence. Date night is a chance to appreciate yourself. We often seek appreciation and love from others without expecting the same amount of support from ourselves. I think it's imperative to enjoy our own company and our own space. More than just even enjoying it, to make a point of celebrating it.
I felt a little more grounded and a little more at peace with myself after spending some time nurturing my body and soul. I should also divulge that cooking in my new kitchen has become the high point of every day. I may have to open a bakery with all the bread and pastry I have on the go!
Lots of love, Jessa xx
