And it couldn't have gone better. Boring for a blog post, but woots for us.
Saskia had another glorious 2 and a half hour sleep in the arvo (trying not to get attached), so I was able to try on a few outfits, choose some (impractical) accessories, make a special card & book a restaurant. JanMa and Grandfather happily popped over to babysit and she went down after her shower without a hitch.
I sprayed perfume, he wore a new top, we held hands on the walk to the restaurant, I drank red wine, he ordered vegetarian so we could share, we talked about plans for travel in the future, I had fried ice cream for dessert (what am I? 12 years old?), he told me beautiful things about becoming a father and we laughed and really looked at each other.
We came home to find Mum and Dad curled up on the couch. They said there hadn't even been a peep. 10 minutes later we heard a little sound...
Oh it could have all gone differently. But we were so grateful. It was a special night after all.
Happy 6 year anniversary, Meu Amor.
If I know what love is, it is because of you.
