I recently did an experiment. Go on weekly date-nights for one whole month. Yes, that’s four in a row. Brave? Yes. Expensive? Yes, very. Worth it? Absolutely. More posts on that to come.
Why? What happens when we spend some one-on-one time with our spouse? Well, even if you’re watching a show or movie, you’re still sitting close together, touching shoulder to shoulder, maybe even arm in arm or hand in hand. Touch lightens the soul and brings back those butterflies from the first date nights you shared. The drinks and dinner before or after the show force you to chat about life, hopefully more than just the number of diapers you changed today, but future hopes, dreams and goals for your family. The drive? It’s just wonderfully deliciously silent. No babies or children in the vehicle. Peace. Bonus: putting on an extra bit of eye shadow, my favourite ‘bigger’ earrings and high heels.
All of which leads me to the reason for this post — Cirque du Soleil brings the amazing Dralion show to Edmonton this summer! What a completely amazing excuse to head out on date-night! (don’t stop reading now, I have tickets for you to win below!!!)
‘Never been to a Cirque du Soleil show before? It’s the most amazing acrobatic ability, music, costumes, breathtaking acts you’ll see anywhere. I recently had to opportunity to go to two Cirque shows in Las Vegas and it truly was the most outstanding live show I have ever experienced.
“Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.”
