Next we decided to go to Cummings chocolates to get 'one" nice Valentine chocolate for each of us as a treat. He's lost 22 pounds and I have lost 24 pounds in the last two years so we didn't want a whole bunch. We laughed as we saw the police 'working the parking lot' and a scary '2 deep' line to the end of the door with people completely crowding the store. We just drove on by smiling and decided to pick up chocolate covered strawberries at the market later. Besides, we were already 'on' our date.
We decided on a movie and had plenty of time before the movie started with no crowds to enjoy meandering about and enjoy our quiet date. There was no one in the theater when we got there so we enjoyed the time alone until people started showing up. We saw Hugo in 3D. We both enjoyed it very much. Plan 2 worked... enjoy a not too crowded movie.
After the movie I drove Jim back to work. On the way back he held my hand and very sweetly said, "It was a little bit of Heaven spending the day with you today." I felt the same exact way.
I seriously think I married the nicest man in the world.
I wonder if the people waiting in the long line at the chocolate store experienced the same joy of the simple, quiet, lovely date we had today.
Love that man.
