Before I was married, I took myself out on dates ALL the time. To the movies, fancy restuarants...if I wanted to go, I would go without waiting for someone else to ask me to go with them. I loved that time to myself and I still have fun being alone with my thoughts. I don't do it very often anymore, but Matthew was working on Saturday and after I finished some laundry and stuff around the house I decided to go pick cherries at one of the orchards in our area (um, okay how cool is this - we have "pick your own" cherry, apricot, and plum orchards AND local honey stands every weekend)! I haven't checked them out yet so I was really excited to...until I found out they were all closed. Boo, those whores.
Plan B was to go hiking at one of the Griffith Park hikes in Hollywood because I'd never done it before and have heard that it's pretty cool. Unfortunately, I ended up making a few stops along the way (aka got lost) and by the time I got there I didn't want to start a hike because I was scared of caught in traffic going back home. So I just checked out the observatory and had such a nice time walking around by myself, people watching and taking pictures.
Pretty sure I want a sundial in my backyard now.
When I got home Mattie wanted to go out to a dinner and a movie so I actually lucked out and got two dates that day!
