July 20th was Paige's birthday, but unfortunately due to all the chaos surrounding us I wasn't able to plan much of a date night. Well, before I lose all points I had planned an early birthday surprise to take her to see Twelfth Night in Central Park with Anne Hathaway. I knew Paige wanted to see it and a friend of ours (Vitris) went and gave rave reviews. Alas we had just signed our lease the day prior so Paige opted to postpone date night and be productive for our apartment - the time was well spent going to Ikea, Target, Costco, Home Depot, etc in a rented U-haul cargo van. She is a smart one!
So we cooked dinner (first time here), drank wine, and watched t.v. which sent a peaceful wave of normalcy over us for a night. It was lovely, and I hope she enjoyed it as much as I did. She deserved a night with her mind off things.
