Kara Franklyn was born in Southern California but grew up in Walnut Creek where I went to school there, fought and played with my brothers and sister there, had my first heart broken there and made lifelong friends that no matter where I live will always be there for me! I have lived in several cities in California. From Monterey to Tahoe, DisneyLand to the San Francisco Zoo, it just doesn't get much better! I am married to my best friend, Pete makes me laugh, think and care about what is happening in our world! I am blessed to have family and friends who care about me and laugh at my really dumb jokes!!
I can't tell you how many times I've heard my friends talk about date night, they'd get so excited, almost like they were teenagers again!! Most of them have kids so setting up a time to spend with their special someone took some changing of schedules, pleading for a last minute baby sitter or holding their breath all night so they could fit into their favorite pair of jeans!! Since Pete and I don't have any kids, you'd think we'd have plenty of time together....not so much!!! He goes to law school at night and I get up practically in the middle of the night(3am)!!! Then on my days off, he's working. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining, Pete and I try to make the time we are together, quality time. Well, most of the time!! So we started it, yep, date night. And yes, I get just as excited as my friends do!! No cell phones, no drama, just Pete and I actually talking without interuptions!!! Now I see what my friends have been talking about!! In this busy world, whatever time you have to spend with a friend or spouse, try to make the most of it! Whether its 5 minutes or 2 hours, it's a special time that no one else can take away from you. And you don't have to go anywhere fancy, just sppend those moments, laughing, chatting with the one person who loves you thru thick and thin, is always there for you, even at the silliest of moments and who cherishes date night as much as you do!!!
