52 Weeks of Dating with FREE Planner

Dating is an integral part of any serious relationship. My husband and I have been married for just under 3 years and it has been the best three years our lives. We love spending time together and being in each other’s presence, but sometimes we find ourselves in a place where we spend time together, but it’s not really QUALITY TIME

To maintain a healthy and fun relationship, we need to make an effort to spend some quality time together, on a weekly basis.

Because both my hubby and I, are not your typical “romantics” and rarely plan for anything in advance, especially date nights, we don’t get to experience the full benefit of what we have to offer each other. The few times that we did plan, it was so magical and memorable, plus we also had way more fun. 

So, this year we decided that things will be different. Different how? By making a commitment with ourselves and each other to have 52 planned (and scheduled) date nights, each with a different theme or activity. Although we are not completely eliminating the thought of being spontaneous, it is important for us to make date nights a priority and stick to the plan.

{Side note: a year is a very long time, so it’s not necessary to plan out your whole year in advance. Unexpected things can happen, so take it month to month. This must be fun and exciting, not stressful and overwhelming. Planning is part of the fun, so remember to enjoy it}.
