with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
The lovely team over at Ladies Home Journal added me on Twitter last week. This was quite nice as you know I’m always looking for marriage articles to discuss for my Friday posts and I hadn’t thought to check out their site. Shortly thereafter they posted a link to one of their articles titled, “10 Creative Dates“. As someone who (ceaselessly) promotes making time for regular “Date Nights” and who is always trying to break out of same routine, the article caught my eye.
A few of my favorite ideas from the column:
A progressive dinner. Appetizers at one place, dinner at another place and dessert somewhere else. Different locations not only have different atmospheres, it would give your stomach a chance to digest before you assault it with more food.
Taking a class together. I’ve always thought that taking a cooking class would be fun - how much more so would it be if I had Honey for company?
Pretend you’re tourists. We live in an area that is vacation country for many people on the west side of the country. There are hundreds of attractions that we’ve never taken in, many of them free or by donation.
Going for a day hike. We live in an area lovingly referred to as “God’s country”. There are mountains, lakes and trails everywhere. What a great way to spend time together, enjoy nature and get some exercise to boot.
Do you have any creative date ideas?
