I'm not sure how I originally came across this but when I read it I thought that is totally what I am getting Tim for Christmas. So the idea is to plan a date for every month of the year, each month has an envelope with the date details, some have vouchers in, some have pictures of where/what we will be doing (eg. restaurant, walking in a national park). It was lots of fun to put together and Tim really loved it! I got a bit nervous closer to Christmas...I thought he might think it was lame! good thing he didn't.
So January was super easy! Go somewhere to escape the heat...even though now our weather has turned quite cool! ha We went to the movies and saw Sherlock Holmes and we treated ourselves to a "small" popcorn...it wasn't that small!
I made a goal earlier in 2011 to make date nights regular. We do a lot together but making sure we make special intentional time was what I was going for. It's a good habit to get into before we have kids!
