Do you remember your first date with your husband?
Our dates were amazing ~ he sent flowers, small gifts, lovely restaurants,
weekends away, wrote me poems, called just because he was thinking of me ...
I knew on our first date that he was the man I wanted to marry.
He was such a gentleman. I loved just "being" with him. No matter what we were doing ~ we were together. Ahhh, those were the days.
Phase II of Life
Add a couple of children into the picture, careers, pets, school projects, committee meetings, seasonal sports, home improvement projects, hectic holidays and what do you get?
Well, to be honest, not much.
We both have made attempts to embrace a weekly date night. The first week is great and then "something comes up" and it falls by the wayside.
I had an idea a few months ago to date using the alphabet!
Strange thought? Yes.
When I proposed it to my husband he agreed (what a sport!) to give it a go and even took on the first letter A! Our dates have to have something to do with that letter. My husband had read about a wonderful new restaurant. He tried so hard to plan out our first date and it was a total failure (the restaurant wasn't open and we had car trouble) but we had a fabulous time regardless! That's the point of this ~ being with each other and having fun.
Our strategy has brought back the newness of "dating" each other. It's fun to be together and since we have to be creative, we both look forward to what the other has planned when it's their letter.
