Philip and I celebrated six years of marriage on Saturday. We celebrated by having a night out together, sans Little Philip. NeeNee and Poppy Porter spent the night at our house to take care of little one while we went out for a good movie (Evan Almighty), an excellent dinner at Village Tavern, a late night coffee, and a luxurious stay at the recently renovated and restored Historic Tutwiler Hotel. I wish our bedroom and adjoining sitting room (wait, we don't have a sitting room) each had their own plasma TV.
It was wonderful being alone again, just the two of us, trying desperately not to talk about our wonderful son or to call home and check on him. We need to do it more often. It reminded us how important it is to be husband and wife before father and mother.
