It's Friday lovelies and it's March to boot! Today I wanted to share some personal advice on keeping things fun and exciting in relationships. I mean I'm not an expert by any means and our relationship is a constant work-in-progress; however I love hearing others outlook on relationships and life in general. I shared the pic below on Instagram (hence Insta-Crush... clever eh?!) this week and it got a few likes and comments. I believe the reason why is because people can relate to relationships not always being easy and that we can sometimes end up stuck in a bit of a romance rut. We are not married but we are going on our 4th year together on March 17th and we decided a while back that keeping date nights to at least once a week would keep the fun that we all remember when we first met. We go out for dinner to restaurants because restaurants (unfortunately for my waistline) is our thing. In the winter we mostly stay in but prepare out-of-the-norm dinners that we are more likely to order at a restaurant than make at home (example below is Osso Buco; my favourite!) We light some candles and drink a nice wine.
You can pretty much make date night anything you want. If your interests are more the outdoors type, go for a hike and then bring the required elements to have a picnic. Anyway, you get the drift. It's all about not just stepping outside the box but remaining there so that we can always expect the unexpected.
This was a short post and may or may not have been helpful for some of you but it helps me see that I'm doing something right!
Last few words of wisdom: Never stop dating and always keep it fun
Have a great weekend! xoxo
