IMG_9245

These days with so many socia media networks, like Pinterest and Instagram, there seems to be so much pressure to be the “perfect” mom. While my husband works 12 hour (or more) work days, I find myself feeling guilty that maybe I’m not doing enough on the home front. I know I can’t be the only one experiencing this.

Often times we try to set aside time to connect at home after the baby is asleep. This usually means Netflix and some ice cream, and often results in the two of us on our phones candy crushing or facebooking.

So when I came across the Date Night In subscription box I was thrilled! The idea of someone preparing an intimate and creative date and delivering it to my door was a dream come true.
