Happy almost-Friday, friends! I’m super thrilled today to present to you a guest post from the lovely Nicole, who blogs at A La Maxfield. We only recently found each other, but I instantly love her. She’s so sweet and sincere, and her blog is adorbs. Oh, and she lives in Canada, and since I’m in North Dakota, she’s like my neighbor in the North, haha. Represent!
While she’s posting here, I’m also guest posting over at her blog, and it’s all about how to start meal planning. Make sure to hop on over there and read that too!
Anyway, here’s Nicole with some date night inspiration. Enjoy!!
My name is Nicole and I blog over at a la Maxfield. Thank you Amanda for letting me join you on Notes from a Newlywed! I’m so excited to be able to be a part of such a wonderful blog!
My husband and I just celebrated our first wedding anniversary last month (!!!), and we’ve always struggled with coming up with date nights. When we got married and moved to Alberta, Canada, we told each other that we would have twice monthly date nights. My first thought was, “That’s a heck of a lot of planning” mixed with excitement. When we first moved, our jobs caused us to have opposite schedules. He has the day shift while I had the evening shift, so we knew that we needed to make time for each other.
So, while I couldn’t think of date nights off the top of my head, other than dinner and a movie, I turned to where else? Other blogs. I knew there had to be other newlyweds who were struggling with the same thing we were. Amanda even shared a DIY on a date night jar! So today, I wanted to share with you a big ol’ cluster of my favourite lists of ideas for date night to write down to fill your jar 🙂
A few of them repeat, but I think it’s because those ideas are really good and that you should try them! They had to of been effective 😉 Now you have a ton of ideas to fill your jar with, and many nights of exciting things ahead of you.
Thank you again to Amanda for letting me be a guest on Notes from a Newlywed! I had a blast, and I look forward to hearing about your date nights!
P.S. Don’t forget to check out Nicole’s blog and see my guest post there too!
