K: We're excited to announce the launch of our free e-book resource! You may have noticed that Brandon and I have been consistently trying to post date ideas for couples (you can see our past posts here, here, and here). Today is no exception, but we also want to go ahead and give you a fabulous resource that will inspire you to try something else besides dinner and a movie. As a couple, we try to be as creative as we can and find something fun and unique to do every weekend. No matter what your relationship looks like, we are confident you'll get a date idea from this guide! Click here to grab your copy.
B: We found this heavy, yellow tandem bicycle in Katherine's parents beach house garage and decided that nothing could beat a little walk and bike ride through this beautiful beach village. Tandem bike riding is most definitely a trust building date activity. The back seat rider can do nothing but pedal and hold onto the rear handle bars, forcing them to depend fully upon the front seat rider for steering capabilities. However, the front seat rider relies heavily upon the back seat rider's balance and peddling power. This was our first tandem bike ride and a success I must proclaim! This fun trust building activity is just one of the many experiences that we try to share with one another to help strengthen the foundation of our ever growing relationship.
B: Katherine and I look far and wide for ideas to expound our dating repertoire. We prefer dating activities that are thought provocative to help us learn more about each other. This doesn't mean that we will not attempt a similar date more than once - like training with our puppy Tara (click here) - but rather change the setting of the surroundings to stimulate new sights and sounds to help express new topics of conversation and memories from childhood that can be used to gain a better grasp of each other during our youth.
My date activity preference changes pending on which phase of mind I am currently in. That means several seasons of the year I prefer fast-paced outdoor activities, while other months I would prefer to stroll through an art museum or attend a ballet (click here). Katherine has been incredibly patient with some of my date activity ideas, including her attempt at an off-shore fishing trip even though she quickly became sea-sick when she lost sight of land. Nonetheless, Katherine and myself have numerous favorite date activities that we will continue to share with you on every Friday post!
K: Before we got married, I stressed to Brandon how important it is to make time for one another. He could not agree more and we make a conscious effort to "date" even though we are married. This simply means that we pursue each other, go out, and invent activities that are perfect for us. If bike riding isn't your thing, download our guide of 30 Dates that YOU can replicate and let us know which one is your favorite.
