Last night, Alex and I went out to dinner for one of the first times since Anton was born four months ago. (It felt so good to be out!) We met our friends, and at one point, I looked over at Alex telling everyone a story and was struck by how funny and handsome he looked. I love that about double dates: You're forced to take a break from parenting minutiae and see your partner through other people's eyes, and you realize how lucky you are.
Alex, I love you.
P.S. We went to Cafe Cluny, which is our favorite restaurant in NYC; I'd highly recommend it, if you haven't been!
