After 10 years of marriage, we still love to go on dates.
Remember my fairy tale day?
Yeah, I still LOVE to date this guy.
So, what kinds of dates do we like to go on?
1} Bike Rides! Amazingly enough, this anti-exercise girl enjoys a nice long bike ride with her hubby. I know. crazy, right? It gives us talk time and quiet time away from phones, computers, kids and the busyness of life. We can just be us and get exercise in the process. So nice. and so peaceful. And, our Schwinn bikes are pretty fun too. UPDATED to add: Running! We love running together. Especially trails.
6} Picnic. We don’t do this as often as we should. But, there is something very romantic about a picnic! This date also goes very well with a bike ride.
7} Reading. Yes. Reading. We both enjoy reading. It is a quiet and peaceful way to spend a date. Sometimes, we actually read out loud together but usually we each have our own book and enjoy the downtime.
8} Cooking. It is not very often that I break out a recipe and cook an extravagant meal. Actually, the only time I do this is when Jeremy is cooking with me. He likes to make some wild recipes which makes for much fun and entertainment in our tiny kitchen.
9} Travel. We both love to travel. We love airports, flying, driving, experiencing new things and visiting great places. We have been known to drive to another city for a date. Lots of fun.
10} Lunch. I know I said dinner already, but lunch is pretty fun too. A few weeks ago we met at Wendy’s, just the two of us. He ate a free sandwich and fries and I ate a small chili. Super cheap but good quality time.
It takes work to carve out time when your busy with life and kids but it is so worth it!
