Date night and a wrap dress

Admitting that I intensely love my family is an understatement. I tend to be a bit sensitive, sentimental, and attached to those whom I hold dear to my heart.

“Family is like music, some high notes, some low notes, BUT always a beautiful song.” 

Speaking of love, the 5 love languages comes to mind {My blogger friend, Kasey from Kase Styles, just blogged about this last week. Go check it out.}. You may not know what your love language is yet, but my top love language is totally quality time {next in line would be gifts #ummmyes #hello}. I crave and value time spent with others. It can be relaxed, intimate, goofy, simple or action packed. I just love those moments spent getting to know each other and just doing life together. I also have learned that I have to be assertive when it comes to pursuing others and scheduling lunch dates, coffee dates, family play dates, shopping excursions, and even vacations. {By the way, my husband is superb at making sure this need of mine is met in our relationship.}


“The greatest gift that you can give someone is your TIME. Because when you give your time, you are giving a portion of your life that you will never get back.”

“Never be too busy for the people that you love. Never allow the pursuits or possessions to become bigger priorities than relationships.”


With all of that said, we recently went on a triple date with my two nephews and their girlfriends. It seriously was so much fun. I loved seeing my handsome nephews interacting with their ladies and also paying for everything. Ha!! #grownuplife

I thought this date night was a perfect opportunity to wear this wrap dress from Shein. It is so well made yet lightweight for a hot, summer night in Louisiana. I love a good wrap dress because it draws attention to the waist and always makes me look a little thinner #justsayin. We took advantage of the sunlight and the beautiful courtyard located near our restaurant and snapped a few pictures of the details.

  • That sounds like so much fun!!! What a sweet family you have. All you girls are lovely!
    I took the love language test recently, and I believe mine is gifts:). The thought that goes into that- like when my husband brings home a coke with song lyrics on it he’d know I’d love… that just means so much to me:).
    And love that dress- it’s so flattering on you!
