one of my favorite things about john and i is that way we always make time for date nights, for each other.
sometimes it’s hard with our busy schedules, and our herd of small children running around, but the fact that we always make time to spend quality time together, alone, is my favorite.
so try it; forget about your schedules, the kids, the person who annoyed you earlier in the day and devote your time and attention to the one you love. i wrangled up some fun ideas; check ’em out:
have a picnic, inside or out.
turn your outdoor patio into a dining experience…music, tablecloth, candles, and all.
kayak down the river together.
attend a sporting event together.
get out of the house and just rent a hotel for the night. order take-out, watch movies, and don’t leave the room until morning.
lay on a blanket outside and stargaze.
have a cozy night in. make popcorn, snuggle under some blankets on the couch, and binge watch some of your favorite movies.
get fancy. get all dolled up and pick a hotel lobby to meet up at. reserve a table at a fancy restaurant and finish the night at a show or bar.
take a class…cooking, painting, etc.
recreate your first date, always a favorite to recreate those memories.
choose to always date your person. xoxoxo
