A wise young woman told me, ‘make sure to have a regular date night with your husband, to help keep the flame you feel for each other now a burning’. Of course I ignored the advice, sure our love would never fade. Ha. While we aren’t great at doing anything with great regularity, I do try to plan something a little special for us each month. Over the remainder of the month, we’ll share a few of our favorite dates.
It’s one of my fond memories from when we were dating. We walked to a nearby park, spread out a blanket and talked for hours. My antsy husband-to-be eventually talked me into having a contest to see who could roll down the hill the fastest—I won! On occasion we’ll still take a blanket out, hold hands, lay in the sun, and rekindle those flighty feelings of early romance.
