I believe that every couple should have a date night at least once a week. Before you respond with a resounding “yeah right!” please read on.
Kel and I go out together sans kids maybe once every other month, yet we still try to have a date night once a week. It doesn’t need to be fancy, it’s often just the two of us eating sundaes over a game of scrabble or sharing a late dinner with cheap wine after the kids go to bed.
Because let’s be honest, how many of us have the money to pay for a sitter AND dinner out once a week? Honestly? We don’t.
So we have to get creative, and I bet you do too. Along these lines, I’m asking you to do me a solid, give me a belated anniversary present
Will you give me your best advice on how you and your significant other manage to connect in the midst of your crazy busy lives? Despite exhaustion and the pull of zoning out in front of the TV, how do you make time to really see each other?
It can be something you do daily, weekly, or even once in a while, but I would love you to give me the gift of your creative connection ideas.
Here’s the deal, we are all going to share our best ideas on intentional connection in marriage by:
1) Submitting your ideas to me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or commenting below or via Facebook
2) I’d love it if you include a story of why it works, make it personal!
3) I’d love it even more if you include a picture of you and your special someone.
Then Friday I’m going to share our stories and ideas here on the blog and that weekend we can all do something new to connect in our marriages.
So, are you in? Will you share your secrets on keeping it sweet and even a little spicy?
