Two years ago, I planned a Christmas themed date for each week of December. I thought then what a wonderful thing it was to take intentional time outs for each other weekly and how nice it would be to do it every month. And then I promptly forgot about it after Christmas. Until recently. No matter how long you’ve been together, most couples could use some help with date night which is where I come in. Once a month this year, I’m going to give you a date idea for each week of the month. Some of them will require money, some won’t, some will have something to talk about, some will be a service type project, hopefully all of them will inspire you to date your spouse! Without further ado, here are four date ideas for January.
Ice Skating – Most of us probably aren’t expert figure skaters which means this date night is the perfect excuse to hold hands all night long.
The Chronicles of Narnia Date Night – The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is a great wintery movie. Copy the Beaver’s meal of fish, potatoes, marmalade sticky rolls and tea and curl up while you watch this together. Great option for a week you can’t get a sitter!
Coffee and Goals – Grab a new clean notebook and head to your favorite coffee shop to talk about your goals for the new year. Make sure you cover both your family goals and your personal ones.
Play in the snow – Indiana is bound to have another good snow left in her this year. Reach the inner child in you and get outside to build a snowman and have a snowball fight.
