On Monday night Mark and I had our first date night inI can’t even remember when. I picked him up from work, we went home, he installed a sump pump in the basement while I filled the bird feeders (romantic, right? :)) and then we headed down to Canal Park for dinner at Bellisios. It was one of the rare Duluth nights where it was 90 on top of the hill and just as warm by the lake. We sat outside on the patio, had some wine, a delicious meal and wonderful conversation. We were both pretty tired after the early morning start to the day, but it was great to just relax and enjoy each other without interruption. After dinner we headed home, brushed our teeth and crawled into bed by 9:30. While it wasn’t anything spectacular and it sure wasn’t a late night, it was one of the best times I’ve had in awhile.
