Dating. Do You Still Do It?

When school started again this year Shawn and I decided to do something.

Start dating again.

Each other. Don't worry.

It had been almost 16 years and we'd settled into a routine. So now we have a weekly lunch date. He works within walking distance of two hospital cafeterias and driving distance of several wonderful and unique restaurants. We don't have a specific day, but always make one work. Then we discovered that with the girls going to piano every Thursday night for an hour and a half total, we could have a date night as well!

We've met for dinner, we've gone to Starbucks, we've run errands, and we've gone to the lake and watched the sunset. It doesn't matter at all what we do or where we go, we just like spending time with each other outside of the house.

And you know what? I've always loved him, but I'm falling in love with him all over again.

How could you not love this face?Do you all still date? If not I challenge you to. You never know what you'll discover!

Yes, we still date. Since Kev is working up to 23 different ER's and gone up to 60 hour stretches, when he is home, we often go on lunch dates. We make the most of our time together. We love to shop, do errands, and just snuggle on the love seat together!

25 1/2 years and going strong!

My hubby and I didn't but after 26 years we started to come apart at the seams. This Christmas I gave him a dating ideas coupon book and now we are trying to get back to each other and coming along nicely. Couples really need to keep each other #1 and make time for each other!Keep up the great work!
