a year of dates



i came across this wonderful idea for a year's worth of dates and just knew it would be a great gift for my husband's birthday earlier this month.



each month has a different activity for us to go do together. some are fun or silly, some are more romantic, but hopefully each one will give us something to look forward to doing together each month. i did splurge on tickets to a comedy show that my husband wants to see, but for the most part, each of the activities are inexpensive things like renting bikes to ride in central park or going to listen to the free concert.

he really seemed to like it and i'm really looking forward to re-opening the envelopes each month to see what we have in store!



(a little dorky? yes. did it make my husband smile? you betcha.)
