Let’s chat about my favorite thing, shall we? Summer. Date. Night.

ICYMI, I was back in D.C. for 3 weeks taking care of my mom after a hip replacement surgery, and I just came back to Philly last week. I immediately went all about town, and even knocked off some of the restaurants on my Philly Bucket List. I promise, I’ll get back to my regular routine of eating out, but hanging out around town with my BF the first week I was back was honestly a delight!

Funny story about this dress: I actually rented it on Rent the Runway twice before just sucking it up and buying it. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten so many compliments on a dress ever! This piece is truly a showstopper and let’s face it: a wrap dress isn’t going to go out of style anytime soon!

    Date night would be games at Dave and Buster’s – earning tickets to buy a fun memento, dinner at a nice steakhouse, a cupcake for dessert, and then massages!

    Perfect date night for me would be a stroll in the park in the cool of the evening, followed by a light, but elegant dinner under the stars.

    Date night is usually a nice dinner out at a sit down place we like here. Then coming home and relaxing with a nice bottle of wine or a cocktail.
