The Letter “G”


Last week I thoroughly enjoyed all that Tom planned for my “F” date weekend.  I turned “F”ifty, so he took it on himself to plan all my “F”avorites.  It was a wonderful time “F”illed with “F”antastic memories! So, we encourage you to take advantage of these Alphabet Dates – there’s something for every budget and every interest.  And if you don’t live in Central Florida – use these ideas to search out things in your neck of the woods!

“G” Activities:

Geocaching – a great outdoor adventure that requires a GPS.   Warning – once you start you may become addicted – it’s that much fun!

Golf – regular, if you play or miniature for a great game.

Gin Rummy – any version you choose – make up your own prizes.

Go Kart Riding!

Game Night – plan an entire evening playing your favorite board game.  Or take your spouse to Gator’s to watch the game!

Kenny “G” – Rent a concert DVD or simply listen to his CD while your bask in the glow of your spouse’s gaze.

“G” Food:

Greek Cuisine – What a perfect, romantic meal. Make your own at home or find a great local Greek restaurant nearby.

Grill out dinner – guys this is your chance to bless your wife without making a mess in the kitchen!

Ghiradelli Chocolate – you have a choice of making brownies at home…eating chocolate bars, or if there’s one nearby visiting their Chocolate Soda Fountain.

Georgia On My Mind – Enjoy an evening of Georgia cuisine and finish watching Gone With The Wind.

“G” Special Touches:

Write your spouse a “Gratitude Letter”.  Spend some time thinking of all the things you’re grateful for, write them down in letter form and then plan an evening where you can read it aloud to them.

FlowersGeraniums, Gerber Daisies, Gladiolas.

Goody Basket – make your spouse a goody basket before your date.  Plan to go to a quiet, secluded place to enjoy presenting them with their very own goodies.  It can be personal items just for them, or filled with their favorites to enjoy together

Please Note – several of these ideas could be combined to make one “G”reat date night!  For instance, write your gratitude letter, put together a goody basket, take a drive and find a place to park, listen to Kenny G while you enjoy the evening in “G”rand style.

    Good job including geocaching! 🙂 That’s a personal favorite of mine, though it’s a tad difficult with a little one. Once she’s old enough to go with us, we’ll be back into the hunt.

    Nice site and nice ideas. 🙂 My Mother died when I was 20 months old….six years later Daddy married the person that I have called Mother for almost 59 years.

    So for our G night we played “Games”…We had a blast with Jenga which neither of us had ever played before. I took a sharpie and wrote intimate directions on about a third of the pieces. Everything from “kiss for 10 full seconds” to conversation starters. Everything was PG-13 and geared toward emotional as well as physical intimacy. It was a hit!

    We are also doing and international meal a month thing and as it turned out we decided on Greek food this month. Nothing says Greek like the olympics so we had a competition and played “grown up Twister” and laughed ourselves silly.

    We also played Love Scrabble on our first Alphabet date (ABCs) and that was super fun too.

      We love it! – Great ideas, and we’re so glad you shared them with us. Always looking for fresh inspiration. How do you play Love Scrabble? Is it like our Romantic Scrabble rules?

        as it turns out it is, but we did it back in January so I didn’t have your refinements. Next time we will just pass out the tiles and spell our name in the middle like you did. I think that would make it even more fun. Every word we spelled had to be connected to a memory, or so part of our relationship. It was really a great evening!
