Taking the time and money to take your spouse out is hard in our busy society, but it helps remind them how much they mean to you. Date night doesn’t mean it has to break the bank! Remember whether it is free or costs the world, a date is only as good as the thought put into it.
Grab a couple of blankets, spread them out in your backyard and gaze up at all stars and planets in your night sky. Did you know there are even apps available (such as Skyview which is available for iPhone and Android), that when pointed to the sky, will help you decipher what you are looking at? So fun!
Bonfire and S’mores
Light up the backyard fire pit and get to cooking while sharing a drink and laughs– and remembering why you fell in love in the first place!
Antiquing or Thrift Store Shopping
Take a walk through local antique or thrift stores and talk about all the quirky things you find. Better yet — purchase an item to redo and upcycle together!
A great way to enjoy each other’s company as well as give back to the community is to look for volunteer opportunities. Check with your local animal shelter or other community organizations such as Red Cross.
Take to the internet and search for possible haunted locations in your area. Everything from an old abandoned insane asylum to the local legends surrounding your local watering hole can be fodder for the best “hunt.”
Create little cards with clues on them to lead you from the starting point to your ultimate destination. You can keep it small by keeping it around the house or let it grow to something that covers the whole city. A cute twist would be to have the “treasure” be something that holds significance for the both of you, such as the place of your first date.
Remember, it is always the thought that counts. Whether you are going on your first date or celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary just being together and enjoying each other’s company is the goal. Think outside the box and remember to have fun no matter how you spend your time with the one you love.
