101 Romantic Winter Date Night Ideas

101 Romantic Winter Date Night Ideas

Date Night Ideas

My husband is my best friend.

This October marked 17 years since we’ve been together! 17 years!

I love to do anything and everything with him. As we’ve gotten older and added 5 kids to our crew, it’s gotten tougher and tougher to find the time to head out and just BE.

I’m committing to myself and to him that in 2015, we will do dates whenever we can (pending my parents for babysitting!).

It’s the winter right now, and will be chilly for the next few months, so I wanted to come up with some ideas for us.

I came up with 101 Romantic Winter Date Night Ideas… not all of them will be romantic to everyone, but it’s the kind of list that you can peruse and see what works best for you.

Happy Holidays with a little ROMANCE! 🙂
