I believe that everyone deserves a chance at True Love. Once it's obtained you have to work at keeping it, if taken for granted it will eventually be lost. Some People claim to have fallen out of love when really they just stopped fighting for it.

I've been happily married to my high school sweetheart, Jason, for 8 years. We have two boys, ages 7 & 11. I'm bringing them up to follow their dreams. I practice what I preach. Date Night, our company, has been a dream of mine for a LONG time. Before I got the idea for Date Night, I was a romance enrichment consultant. I did this for about 5 years.

On Aug 25th 2011, my husband and I were chosen as Dr. Laura Berman's couple of the week for her former radio show on Oprah Radio.

We've always known how important Date Night is in a relationship. There were times that if we had not continued to make Date Night a priority, we would have drifted apart. I had the idea for a company & brand to be named Date Night on an actual date night with my husband. We bought a Power Ball lottery ticket after dinner on our way back to the hotel we were staying at. We wound up having a long conversation about what would do with the money if we won the Power Ball.

We didn't win the Power Ball, but the idea for Date Night was born. The vision was of course on a HUGE scale. The things you can create with a large sum of money differ from that of a very small start-up budget. However, over the years I've scaled down and worked the vision backwards. It will start with an interactive website that....Well, you'll just have to wait and see.
