52 First Dates: Week Seventeen

*Taken in Aug

Week Seventeen... Seventeen!  Wow!  Seventeen weeks of getting to know your spouse better?  Isn't that amazing?

Can you imagine if we always took this time to invest in the most important relationship of our lives?  So important to invest that time.  Can't believe the results we're already seeing in our home.

So how was your art date?  Did you have fun?  Neither Dave nor I have an artistic bone in our bodies.  It was an experience.  But it was fun.  It's just fun to get out art stuff and doodle.  Plus it's super relaxing and gets the mind going.  We had some of the best conversation.  It wasn't forced and things just came up that we wouldn't have thought of otherwise.  It was a great date!

Ready for this week's challenge:

Let's go stargazing before the weather gets too cold.  It's cooling off here, but this is a date that I so want to do.  Whether you're gazing in the backyard or taking a drive, it's a great way to get away from the TV and really start talking.  You'll have to hire a sitter for this one, but it's your only expense.  And if you wait for the kids to go to bed, the sitter's even cheaper.  Take a drive out of town where it's really dark.  Don't forget to pack snacks: Hershey's kisses, dessert, strawberries... anything in that area.  Pack a blanket too.  Find a quiet place to just sit and look at the stars.  I'm sure that's not all you'll be doing, but it's a good place to start.

Have fun on your date night!
