Over the years, we’ve gotten much better with our frugal dates. Have you noticed that nearly every new fitness studio has a “first class free” special? Workout together and then come home and get washed off together (I’ll let you decide what that means). You have just a few more times to catch a full moon before the year ends so take advantage now. A Moment in Time Seal your time together by constructing and burying a time capsule. So why not create your own national holiday, mark it on your calendar and celebrate it each and every year? There is something incredibly sacred about vowing to love one another til’ death do you part.
But for less than , you can imagine where we were seated, right? Our date quickly went up in smoke…literally and figuratively…and we got out of there pretty quickly. You’re never committed to buy anything and they just gave you at least one free date with your honey. Love this idea HWC contributor Paula Rollo came up with when she and her hubby were in a similar predicament last year. But for those lucky enough to have a private backyard, pull the comforter off your bed, grab a bottle of wine and two glasses, and take your date outside. Last night, we were at a Pan-Asian restaurant and they were promoting the upcoming National Noodle Day (October 6th for all you noodle lovers).
But, sometimes it helps to build off other people's ideas in order to form your own ... Sit in the back row and spend the whole time whispering memories from your own wedding.
My prayer is that the power of the gospel would drive how you date your wife and implement these ideas.
Devote one hour each night for alone time with your wife.
Mark your wife's birthday, your wedding anniversary, and Mother's Day on your calendar every year and plan to make those days special.
