IDEAS FROM OUR READERS:
- From Noelle:
My Husband and I had been talking about how much growth we wanted to see in the area of date nights. One of our biggest downfalls was in planning ahead and communicating that we were having a “date.” (Meaning, he would think that taking me out to dinner last minute was a date, but I would think we were just getting dinner because we needed food… ha) So, we decided to work hard on being purposeful and just planning our date nights at the beginning of each week, but we also decided to do something fun with it. We sat down and wrote out all of our favorite dates, and some new ones, split them up based on “free dates”, and “dates that cost money.” Now, when we are planning our dates we pick a date out of the bag depending on what we can do financially, and then do that date. We had so much fun planning them together, and now we have been having so much fun picking a date out of the bag! It has helped a lot with our anticipating and planning aspect of date nights.
- From Debbie:
My husband went all out to plan a special anniversary for me! We love geocaching, (a hobby that uses a portable GPS device to find hidden caches) so he hid a cache for me to find. I didn’t know that it was special for me, until I found it. We spent the afternoon looking for hidden caches, and when I found this one I was overwhelmed that he took the time and energy to create such a special memory for me – for us! It’s an anniversary I will never forget!

- From Anonymous:
A Night In Eden – My husband did this for me. It started with a note written on a large leaf inviting me to the Garden of Eden that evening. He took me out to dinner for great Ribs! While we were eating he had several fun quips to share with me about Adam and Eve, but then, he made it a point to tell me that I was his perfect helpmate. We visited a Whole Foods Market to marvel at the variety and beauty of all that God has made. It was fun, but not as fun as going home – “they were naked and not ashamed!”
- From Vicki:
Take the Amtrack from Winter Park to Kissimmee and have dinner. The train takes you to downtown Kissimmee where there are lots of nice restaurants or a Subway where you can share a $5 footlong.
Roundtrip tickets for two on the train cost $30.
