Canal Walk + Italian Dinner

Canal Walk + Italian Dinner

Good Eats (Camaraderie) We’re currently homeless. Well, to be a bit less ambiguous, we’re in between homes.

Ok, we dropped the proverbial ball on this…and with only seven more date nights to 52! To be fair, we recently sold our house, are preparing to move to another city, and were out-of-town with work for nearly two weeks. We’ve had some wonderful times together but our most recent dates…

For us, Netflix can sometimes serve as the great babysitter of date nights. Early on in our marriage, we found ourselves settling for Netflix & Nap date nights instead of initiative-filled, camaraderie-building, and depth-cultivating date nights. This whole experiment in marital bliss came out of…

Distance + Chocolate Lava Muffins

It’s interesting, since we started this date night experiment, we’ve yet to have a most ideal evening to have our date night. Distractions are around every corner, so commitment is the key at this point. This week was no different. I’m actually writing this from Indianapolis and…

It’s my (Brittanny’s) turn to plan our Date Night! This week we needed to head up to Terre Haute, Indiana, to visit my sister (who was having surgery) and best friend (who just had a baby). My plan for our Date Night was to take…

Two weeks into our experiment and we’ve already encountered our first distraction. There’s always distractions lurking around every corner. I (Matt) was on the road for work Monday, Thursday, and Friday. I also had a packed week in between those days. Britt also had packed…
