Sharing experiences together allows you to see that person, and even yourself, for what you truly are.
Then there's the part where you begin to expose your innermost thoughts, feelings and desires, perhaps as you never had before. How did I not see this happening, So quickly, So slowly, So certain, So tedious, So naturally, So irrationally.
I didn't take pictures of every page, but here are a few to give you some ideas.
If you're looking for a super fun way to put together an entire year of dates for your spouse, make sure to check out the Dating Diva's year of dates binder HERE.
Since our little one will still be too young for candy, we will just tag along with some friends who have older kids, but it will still be so fun to dress up together and enjoy the holiday. Gratitude Date: Brad and I have made this a tradition, and it's a date that we really enjoy. We also like to get a special ornament to represent that year in our family. Build a Snowman: This is obviously a date that depends on if you live somewhere with snow. Our first year in Utah, we somehow weren't able to build one.
We each make a list of things that we are grateful for and then share with the other and remember the things that we have done this year and all of the blessings we've enjoyed. Indoor Mini Golfing: Use plastic cups for the holes and a broom for the putter. This year, the only snow storm we had that merited enough snow for a snowman happened while we were in AZ for Christmas, so next year is our last opportunity! We hope that you will enjoy them and have a fun time making date night a priority, even when going out isn't an option.
With Baby Pew's fast approaching arrival, we are having to start thinking about more creative date ideas.
Although it might be tempting to drag a friend along as a safety buffer, it’s better to go solo.
Have a few different flavors available and then spice things up with cute bowls of yummies to add to the drinks: candy canes, marshmallows (you can find fun flavors like ginger bread and pumpkin), toffee bits, coconut, whipped cream... This date is a good time to sit together and really talk about the year ahead.
Share what you are hoping to accomplish individually and commit to help and support each other. Fondue Night: This is a great idea for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner at home.
So as part of Brad's V-day gift, I put together some pre-planned stay-at-home date ideas.
I organized them by month since some of them fit better at specific times of the year, but we won't start on them until April once Baby Pew is here (we're going out as much as we can for now ;) A YEAR OF STAY-AT-HOME DATE IDEAS January 1.
