Pete and I don't really go on dates anymore. I'm just fine sitting in, watching a movie, reading books, crafting...whatever. And I'm super content with that. But as for dates - they don't really happen as much.
On October 3, we'll be celebrating our 3-year anniversary. WHAT?!? I know, right?! Insane! I can't believe it! Three years. It doesn't feel like it's been three years, but at the same time, it feels like it's been forever. I planned a little surprise-trip getaway for us for the weekend. He doesn't know where we're going yet. I'm really bad at keeping certain kinds of secrets - mostly when I get gifts for people. Like around Christmas time whenever I see a friend, I am just bursting. I want to tell them SO BADLY what I got for them! Sometimes I do. But I try to keep my mouth shut.
Anyway. That weekend we're going away somewhere for a romantic little weekend. In a fancy place. And that's all you're getting.
I came across this list of date ideas - titled "Very Definitely Not Dinner & a Movie". I really, really like some of the ideas!
1. Wake up at 4 AM and watch the sunrise together
2. Have an extravagant brunch at 8 AM.
3. Bring your favorite book and read the first chapter aloud.
4. Collaborative art date.
5. Take cameras and explore an abandoned place.
Go to the link above and look at all of them. It was hard to choose just five to post here! I want to do all of them...
The first pictures taken of me and Pete together...almost three years ago :) Oh, and we were at the City Museum - where we got engaged. Funny how things come full circle, huh?
