Put Some Sparks in Your Date Night with The Best of Me

With two young children at home and not a lot of family available to babysit for free, my wife and I really don't find ourselves getting out of the house that often without the kids tagging along.  A date night for us lately tends to be flopping on the couch after the kids have fallen asleep on a weekend night and throwing a disc into the dvd player to watch a movie.  My wife usually just goes along with my movie selection ideas which normally involve spaceships, super heroes, car chases or action sequences with lots of explosions and she is normally snoring next to me asleep by the midway point in the film.  Obviously, we may need to add a little bit of spark to our "date nights" so this year I'm going to be making an extra effort to have us watch some movies more regularly she really would enjoy and make things a little bit more special when we have some alone time.  Since it appears we won't be getting a babysitter for a Valentines Day getaway this year, I'm going to have us watch a movie called THE BEST OF ME based on a book by one of her favorite authors, Nicholas Sparks, while we enjoy some chocolate covered strawberries and drinks.  It can become easy to take a spouse for granted when you are engrossed with the hustle and bustle of work obligations and the commitments involved with raising children, but it is important to always be considerate of ways (even if they are small gestures like picking out a movie or providing a favorite desert)  to make your partner feel they are appreciated and special to you. 

Released 2/3/15 on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD
Based on the #1 New York Times best seller from celebrated author Nicholas Sparks comes this tender, romantic drama about the timeless power of love.  When former high school sweethearts Dawson and Amanda (James Marsden and Michelle Managhan) meet at a loved one's funeral 20 years after tragedy separated them, their love is reignited.  As they recall and relive the past, they come to a deeper understanding about the choices they've made.  Also starring Luke Bracey and Liana Liberato, and featuring beautiful scenery along with music by Lady Antebellum, "The Best of Me" is a powerfully romantic story of love, hope, and second chances.
