makes me wanna take a back road

If you follow me on insta, then you already know about my hot date with the fellar on Friday night.
We took a casual ride down a country road with a cooler full of cold beer, a bucket of fried chicken and a blanket to have dinner on the back of his tailgate out in the middle of nowhere. I am talking zero cell service kind of nowhere.
The leaves are all changing here in Kentucky. While it has been a week full of rain, friday we were blessed with 70 degree temps and the weather was just perfect. Everything outside just screamed fall!
I can totally see Kev and I living out in the country one day. It speaks to our souls. The country girl in me absolutely loves it. 

We parked way out in a clearing on the edge of a park and dropped the tailgate, turned on a little country music radio and poured cold beer into dixie cups. I took a couple of photos when we first go there and then we both left our cell phones in the truck. There were zero people around and zero distractions. Just me and my hubby enjoying good conversation, good food and good craft beer.

Now don't get me wrong, I love teasing my hair and throwing on fake eyelashes just as much as the next gal, but this causal kind of date night was perfect....our kind of perfect. It was just so much fun to disconnect from the world and be connected to each other in nature. It always recharges us to spend time together outside. 

At the end of our evening, Kev and I were just chatting and I looked over at him....his eyes were as big as saucers. I was pretty sure a bear or coyote was about to attack us, but it was just a family of four deer who came to check out our party. We were soooo close to them. They were very interested in what we were doing on their turf. After a few minutes, they frolicked along back into the woods. It was a great way to end our night.

Such a fun, but simple date night. Loving this man and doing life with him is my favorite.
