A friend offered us tickets to a fancy dinner and ballroom dance at a hotel in Palo Alto that she couldn't use. It was exactly what we needed after several stressful weeks and countless sleep-interrupted nights.
I found a passable dress I could squeeze into, asked my mom to babysit and we were off!
The three course dinner and mocktails were great, but the flourless chocolate cake alone made the trip worthwhile.
Most of the people there actually knew how to ballroom dance, but we had a fun time anyway.
I love any night I get to spend with John, but it was extra special to get dressed up and go out just the two of us.
