Summer is well underway across America.  Many are away on vacation enjoying the sunshine and the family time together.  But if you happen to be home, why not plan a special night with your spouse?  We offer a variety of Fun Holidays you most likely had no idea were even celebrated.  We hope these may spark a creative idea for a romantic, fun night to make a memory.  Or if you live in Central Florida, we offer things happen around our area this week.  Make plans now because before you know it the week will be gone.

And as a special reminder – this Tuesday is the 12th!  The day when we open our comments to hear about your “Here’s To Us” moment you’ve celebrated this past month.  As always the winner is selected from all entries received using  This month we not only provide a free gift card to the restaurant of your choice, but we’re including a copy of Paul Tripp’s book, What Did You Expect?, currently our favorite book on marriage.

♥  Fun Dates To Celebrate  ♥

July 11th

  • National Blueberry Muffin Day – a great start to the week.  Surprise your sweetie with this treat for breakfast.
  • Free Slurpee Day at 7-11 Convenience Stores.

July 12th

  • National Pecan Pie Day – whether you call it “Pea-can” or “Peh-cahn” doesn’t change the fact that this is my favorite pie of all time!  Enjoy a slice for me, okay?

July 13th

  • National French Fries Day – only in America could we find a reason to justify indulging in this favorite fast food.  Serve some with dinner at home or go out for your favorite french fries.

July 14th

  • Bastille Day – Actually a French holiday marking the beginning of democracy in France.  Why not celebrate with a romantic French dinner.  Viva la France!

July 15th

  • Cow Appreciation Day – a great day to be thankful for all the things cows provide for us.  Start with a large glass of milk, then go out and grill up your favorite hamburger or steak.  Add some cheese for a double bonus!  Restaurants and dairy companies celebrate this day by offering specials. Watch for them, and save.

  1. I always appreciate your date ideas. Today I’m numb from going to the dentist, that free slurpee may be calling my name. Thanks.

    From Ashley W.:
    This month has been packed full of parties and plans keeping our schedule very busy. One night we made our usually stop to our daughters’ room to check on them before going to bed. It hit us…looking at our 4 year old and 2 year old sleeping and noticing how much they have grown caused us to reflect on our lives together. We have certainly been blessed by God these past 5 years time and time again. I was so overwhelmed with joy in that moment!
