What started as my Mother's Day present...ended as a much bigger celebration

 For Mother's Day, my husband gave me the gift of a Date Night, which we were able to do a few weeks after celebrating the holiday with my little family. He arranged for us to go to Ruth's Chris and then to have dessert and drinks, while watching Pitch Perfect 2 at Studio Movie Grill.
We were both pretty full from dinner, so we elected to go with the warm chocolate chip cookies and a bottle of wine. And it was an amazing choice! A perfect compliment to a perfect dinner.
Even though the plan had been to celebrate Mother's Day, Mr. Howard had just accepted a job offer the morning before and, honestly, that was much more exciting for our family. We were celebrating a huge shift in our marriage and family life and the promise that we would be able to spend MUCH more time together. It was also a celebration of the end of the grueling process of interviewing. Before he received this job offer, he had been recruited by two other companies and we were just so blessed to be able to put an end to that process and get excited and prepared for his new adventure.
