Abhi and I have been working very hard for the last couple of weeks. After long commutes and over six hours of work/ meetings, we don’t have the energy to head out, not even a local spot for dinner. So lately, we have been bringing the restaurant vibe home.
We started to set up date night in our patio. We pick any random warm evening, I set out the food, drinks and turn on our string light to set the mood. Of course, I dress up ( because let’s be honest I am normally wearing pyjamas at home) to make it feel like a real date. We sip, eat and chat as we hear the street noise (cars whistling past us), children playing outside and the trees rustling. I really get the feeling that we are outside our home and we love watching the pink hue in the sky as the sun sets.
I love our outdoor dates. This is one of my favorite ways to decompress after a long day. It has been a ritual we have had for 4 years now. These evenings started in the balcony in our first home and will always be special to me because it serves as a reminder that life is simple and easy! :)
I hope you guys can enjoy a good meal and a good sunset on your balcony, patio or terrace.
Do you guys have similar date night rituals? I would love to hear.
