Life After Kids...
Date Nights used to be every Friday, Saturday and Sunday before kids. Now, we are lucky if we get a date night twice a month. This past month we had two awesome dates. January 4th, was on a Satruday at the Count Baisey Theater in Red Bank when we saw our favorite comedian Jim Gaffigan. And a week ago on January 24th, a Friday we went to a wedding together. The kids were actually invited to the wedding, but we really wanted a night alone. Both nights were really fun. It felt so good to get out of the house, do something totally different, dress up even, and have a meal together where we can talk uninterrupted.
At the above link you fill in your info and Focus on the Family will send you 3 guides to Date Nights 1, 2, and 3...(I love a challenge). The goal is to have 3 dates in 3 weeks and then once a month for the rest of the year. I like this because I know we can exceed the challenge and try to get out even more than once a month, but it's great to at least have a goal.
I'm especially looking forward to the weather warming up because John and I like to go outdoors for our dates, whether it's sight seeing in Manhattan, or shopping at an outdoor Mall by the shore, anything to switch up the daily routine and be together and connect!
Won't you take the challenge???
