Here in the Midwest we’re having an unusually warm weather pattern for February, which means we have so many more options for going on a simple date. One that my husband and I love to do together involves capturing photos of either the beauty outside or moments inside for a quick selfie of us, or sometimes of us with our friends.
I have to brag a bit on my hubby here. He was a stellar photographer in the Air Force years before we met. Actually, he’s still an amazing photographer! He was even offered a photographer position at the White House near the end of his Air Force career. #impressive
Thankfully, he decided he’d rather go on to college, and that’s where we met!
I’ve always had an interest in photography too. So with my handy phone camera, I’m always in the mood to take a pic or two. I think that’s how some of the best dates evolve. You find something that you both enjoy doing and carve out times to do it together.
In that spirit, I’m going to also include some photos that I took (as well as one that my friend, Erica Donoho took of our table below) at our church’s annual marriage retreat last weekend. That’s another great way to build into your marriage—making times to get away and talk about “heart-matters” in your marriage. 😉
What is an interest that you share with your mate?
When and where are you going on your next “simple date” with your mate?
I recently was a guest at Marnie and Friend’s radio show this past week. If you’re interested, you can listen in to our conversation about The Top Mistakes I Made in Marriage. And let me tell ya . . . I’ve made more than my fair share! 😉
