Okay — those two things might sound like they contradict each other, but I can promise you that the freedom to be spontaneous and scheduling time together all go hand in hand. If your life is anything like mine, it is BUSY — but by carving out special days just to hang out and be together, then that gives you the freedom you need.

While we plan on going out tonight to celebrate our special day, earlier this week, I decided to surprise him with a simple gift that says “You’re Extra Special to Me”, just because. I used Extra Gum and a few of his favorite things. Here is how I did that. →']);" class="more-link">Continue reading

If you have been a reader of my blog for any time, you know how important spending time with my husband is.

Because of this, I always try to keep a getaway bag handy so that if my hubby calls and says he can get away, it won’t take me long to pack and be ready to go. Here are my tips for creating a  getaway bag for your special date night.

Stephen and I have been married for 20 years now. We joke all the time that it feels like a lot longer than that. I look back and realize that I have been with him for over half of my life. In fact, he was my high school sweetheart. We started dating when I was in the 10th grade. Here are a few reasons why I love my husband.

My husband has recently started drinking coffee. For others, this might seem like a bad thing, but for me, this is a very good thing. I have always longed to sit at the table in the mornings, chatting with the one I love, all the while drinking a delicious cup of pumpkin flavored coffee (my absolute favorite in the world). In fact, my favorite coffee mug reflects my sentiments exactly.

I love finding sneaky ways to tell my husband I love him. Over the years, I have made him Love Coupons, written blog posts about why I love him, surprised him with dinner, and more. My new way to tell him I love him? Heartfelt Books.

My husband surprised me by planning a wonderful date night a couple of weeks ago. Here is what he did.

Step 1: Order Tickets to a Third Day Concert

Brownie points for getting us so close to the stage! (4 rows back)!

Step 2: Take her out to dinner at one of her favorite restaurants

Had one of the best Avocado Chicken Salads ever with Cilantro Lime Dressing -it was amazing! :)

Step 3: Buy her that snack that you know is her absolute favorite

Cotton Candy is hands down my favorite snack in the world. I will not tell a lie — I ate the entire bag.

Step 4: Make her feel like a princess all evening long

This is an older picture, but one of my favorites of us at another concert.

If you want to make your husband or wife feel special, plan a date night for the two of you. Go out, have fun, and just enjoy being together. It will make all the difference in the world in your relationship.
