I began by calling this post “My Last Great Date” but that didn’t sound so good.

My most recent great date happened about 2 weeks ago.  I heard an advertisement on the radio that the stage adaptation of The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis was coming to my hometown of San Diego.  James loves audiobooks and was listening to The Screwtape Letters just a few months ago.

Tickets to the play would be perfect.

To surprise him with tickets would be even better!

Finally I had a date idea that would be fun for both of us and something special to remember.  I googled “Screwtape on Stage + discount” and it brought me to a coupon code for $10 off.  Better still!

It was so fun driving downtown to our surprise destination.  He was happily surprised, he had great seats, and thoroughly enjoyed the show.

Afterwards, we ate at Panda Inn, a nice Chinese restaurant (I’m sure you didn’t think it was Italian by the name!).  It brought back memories because the last time we had dined there was several years ago when we were entertaining one of James’ college friends.

We sat in a little table for two, talked about the play, laughed, and ate – it really felt like “date night!”

It’s so fun to look forward to a date…do you have a date night on the calendar?

If so, what are you doing?

If not, what’s keeping you from planning one?
