Picturesque Date Night

It may appear as though we ran off to Napa, but our latest date night took place a mere 15 minutes from our home. I always appreciate how picturesque it is here in central PA and I love discovering breathtaking new views that I never knew existed! Leave it to our good friends Joel and Andrea (of J&A Photography) to introduce us to their friends at Mount Nittany Vineyard & Winery and let us serve as models for their latest project (that you could take advantage of, read on).

Jack and I have been making date nights a priority for the past few years and overall, we have a pretty good track record of getting out together, typically every other week. It’s so easy for him to get wrapped up in work and for me to keep my head buried in all things kids. I often find myself in ‘mom-mode’ and forget that I’m a wife too with a husband that wants to spend time with me in ‘wife-mode’! Whether we head out for dinner, ice-cream or to walk through the aisles of Target, we always enjoy our time together with the possibility of finishing a few conversations :)

When Joel and Andrea reached out to see if we’d be interested in participating in their latest mini-session (and that wine was included) we didn’t hesitate. In collaboration with Mount Nittany Vineyard & Winery, Jack and I enjoyed a wine tasting, a walk through the vineyard and a photo shoot for just the two of us. I can’t tell you how strange it felt to have pictures taken without directing kids around. We haven’t had our own pictures taken since our wedding, 12 years ago!

For those of you that are local and looking for a great date night, J&A Photography will be holding their mini-sessions, ‘Wine and Say Cheese’ at Mount Nittany Vineyard & Winery on August 16th and 17th. You can get all the details and find the link to register HERE. I can’t think of a better way to spend your evening! We are also hosting a joint giveaway that’s taking place over on Instagram that’s worth looking into ;)

The dress I chose to wear for the evening is a few years old, but I’ve included a bunch of similar options for you to check out below, including this popular Amazon piece. I’m a big fan of navy, but the green that they have in their selection is quite tempting!

For those of you that are interested in taking advantage of this fun and unique event, you can find all the details and registration link HERE.
