This past February, my husband and I had our 11-year dating anniversary. It’s kind of funny, because we always debate whether it was the 22nd or 23rd. For some reason, we each remember it as a different date. We just laugh it off, because the date doesn’t really matter. From that first date, we knew we were made for each other. We’ve been together ever since that first date at Applebee’s.
11 years and 3 kids later, our idea of date night has changed quite a bit. We still enjoy the traditional date out to dinner, but sometimes it’s just easier and more practical to stay at home. Between not wanting to bother someone to babysit the kids and wanting to save money to spend on furniture for the new house, at-home date nights have been our speed lately.
For our favorite date nights, we wait to have dinner until after the kids are in bed. We can eat in peace and maybe watch a movie at the same time. No matter what we’re eating, a good wine is the best end to the evening. Lately, we’ve been trying out Wente Wines. You can read more about their story here. Their Morning Fog Chardonnay has been our favorite! If we want a light meal, an antipasto platter has been the winner. Here’s our favorite combo on the platter.
We all have those special moments in our lives when a glass of wine just makes it so much more special. Browse the Wente Wine selection and let me know which one is your favorite. I’d love to try it!
