In October of 1995 Mariah Carey released her fifth studio album titled Daydream. She had major hits from the album including songs like Fantasy, One Sweet Day and of course Always Be My Baby. For me the second song on the album was one of my favorites. It was titled Underneath the Stars and one of my favorite parts of the song is, “as we drifted to another place in time and the feeling was so heady and sublime as I lost my heart to you there in the dark underneath the stars.” I think there’s something magical about lying under the stars with your mate. This week’s edition of Weeknight Date Night was selected by Anthony and we were underneath the stars at the Adventure Science Center for their laser show in the Sudekum Planetarium.
Last week was a crazy week for HutchStew! We’ve both got some great things in the works and with that comes busy schedules. Prior to our date we had a two hour anniversary photo session with our amazing wedding photographers Ivory Door Studio. We always have so much fun with them and the shoot was amazing. I’m impatiently waiting for the pictures. After our photo session we quickly changed clothes and headed to the Adventure Science Center for their Skies over Nashville light show.
The show was really cool. It was like we were sitting in our backyard star gazing and then all of a sudden we were transported. We learned about the constellations and how some of the most common ones aren’t actually constellations. We traveled through the Milky Way and saw its billons of stars. We traveled through the planets and went back in time to see the sunset of a year ago. We went deep into space and contemplated whether or not there is life other places than Earth. And right as my mind started to wander about that possibility of aliens we were back in Music City watching the sunset. All that traveling made us both work up an appetite so we headed to dinner after our date. We had good food, good drinks and great conversation.
