  1. I am loving your website! My Grandparents are celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary and I thought each of us 12 Grandchildren could come up with a different date night each month. Most of them will even include their Grandchild picking them up and making sure they get to their date safely and on time making their date extra special! Once we finalize our dates I will have to choose the perfect printables and accessories to present their “Date Kit” so that their 66th year is still the Best To Come!!❤

  2. What a great idea for a website. There’s such garbage out there with regards to love and relationships, but this site is great! Thanks fur sharing.

  3. These are all such creative ideas! I love romantic rooftop idea, if only we had a place on our rooftop to sit. Thanks for the ideas!

  4. I LOVE seeing all of these fun dates all in one place. I wish more couples realized that it can be SUPER easy to date your spouse.. especially when we come up with the ideas and even fun printables for them! lol

  5. I did the Cuddle Kit date last week with my husband and he LOVED it! This weekend we did an at-home movie night (complete with “tickets”, lots of candles, and a concession stand that only accepted kisses and compliments as payment!). I love your ideas and printables, as does my husband.
