Eeeek, it's been a touch too long since my last date night idea was posted. Truth is, raising two little girls often gets in the way of date night. Before we had kids, everyone warned me that my husband and I would experience a date night decline. Being the die-hard optimist that I am, I didn't believe them. But alas, nearly three years into parenthood and our QT has gone from a weekly to a monthly occurrence.
But let's not throw out the baby with the bath water… even one date night a month is better than none. So, I'm back with renewed commitment. And if you ever see more than a 2 week lag between postings, you have my permission to send me an email scolding.
Without further adieu, here is your latest date night idea…
Head to Maitland's Lake Lily every Tuesday night from 6pm – 9pm for some sidewalk snacking courtesy of several Orlando-area food trucks. The truck pod that gathers here each week usually includes The Crooked Spoon, Yum Yum Cupcake Truck, Korean BBQ Taco Box, Tree House Truck and a handful more. Bring a blanket (tables and chairs are scarce) and park a squat lakeside with your sweetie and some creative nosh. The daring will even smuggle in some wine.

Happy food trucking!
