It is so important to date your spouse! It can be really difficult to come up with fun date ideas, so here are 20 easy date ideas right at your fingertips!
Date your spouse. This is something I preach.
Real talk – after my husband and I got married, I wasn’t truly sure I wanted to have kids. My biggest fear was that I was going to lose “us.” I was going to lose what made us a family. I didn’t want to get caught up in a kid, only to forget the reason why that kid was here.
Then it just clicked one day. I remember – I went out to dinner with my mom and I just cried. I told her my fears and she reassured me that it didn’t have to be that way. Mama to the rescue.
My husband and I try to go out once a month, just the 2 of us. We have lots of family and friends that are available to watch our kids at the drop of a hat (you know who you are) so finding a sitter is very rarely difficult for us and we are lucky for that!
But sometimes, finding that sitter isn’t always easy. So I put together a list for you of easy date ideas. I challenge you to try them all!

Try it. I promise, you’ll like it.
