It was my turn to plan a date. We drove to the mall where we took an hour to do our 10.5.1 Mall Date. We hadn’t done this in a few years, so it felt fresh.
The idea is to take $10 each and over an hour shop for something for your spouse that you know they will love. You can’t spend over the $10 and can only have change left. (As an added twist you could have a prize for the one who gets closest to $10. I wish I had thought of this sooner, since I beat Tom by 10 cents.) 😊
Also during your shopping spree you must take five photos that convey a message to your spouse.
Once the hour is up meet at the food court or the coffee shop to exchange your gifts and share photos.
We had an absolute blast this time and it was nice to have such a diversion. The best part about this date is it makes you focus solely on blessing each other. It is a great way to disconnect from the busyness of life.
After our MALL date we went to the MOVIE theater to see Solo, a Star Wars Story, based on the early years of Hans Solo.
This marks the halfway point of our challenge and I’m sure of one thing:
Dates are an important aspect of a healthy marriage for it feeds our friendship.
Until next time, Happy Dating! ❤️
