Being more intentional about getting time together as a couple sans kiddos meant we had to put it on the calendar. At the end of 2013, I added a monthly date night onto our Google calendar for the 3rd Monday of the month. (I wrote more about Marriage Goals in Action at Next Level Mama.) We haven’t planned the dates much beyond that point. Most of our date nights have been having dinner out (because we’re wannabe foodies), but we have stretched ourselves to be creative before, so hopefully we can vary things through the year. Any date night ideas?
August Date Night
So for real, anyone know of restaurant critics jobs? :p Norm and I would be perfect! This was our anniversary date, so it worked out that it was a nice and looooong dinner date. We got to chat…uninterrupted!! Thanks to awesome grandparents who hung out with their grandkids so mom and dad can go out! So anyhow, wow, we’ve been married for 9 years + 1 year engagement + 5 years dating! Ups, downs, and all arounds. It’s been an exciting adventure for sure. Looking forward to our 10th anniversary and beyond!
There are more photos in the album for any one who is a foodie and want to know what we ate. :p
