For one of our most recent date nights we decide the weather was gorgeous, and a picnic at the beach would be the perfect way to enjoy our evening.
The last few months we've been trying to find a few times a month to go out alone as a couple to something other then the grocery store.
It really helps to re-energize our relationship and helps us connect on a level that is so difficult after you have children.
When the kids were small I always had such a difficult time leaving the kids with a sitter or family to enjoy a date with Colt, I always felt guilty for leaving them but after almost 15 years of marriage I've realized it's one of the most important things we can do for our family and it makes such a difference in our relationship.
We've also learned dates don't always have to be fancy to be special this picnic was an amazing excuse to enjoy some time alone and watch the sunset without a large expense.
Sometimes the simplest dates build the most memorable memories. The view was stunning!
Colt set the tripod up to catch a photo of us before the sunset.
