With the warm temperatures of summer, it’s the perfect time to take the hand of your honey and go for a stroll. Depending on where you live, you can take a walk on the beach or a stroll in the park. Either way, a nice walk in the park or on the beach is the perfect time to have some wonderful quality time with your significant other.
If you really want to make a date of it, grab a blanket that will fit two and pack a little picnic. Sandwiches, fruit, and cheese & crackers are easy things to package up. You might want to grab a pen and paper too. Next, go to your local park or beach and just take a nice long walk hand in hand with your sweetheart. Make sure to leave your cell phones in the car to keep yourself from being distracted. This time should be all about your special someone, and I am pretty sure that anyone who calls can wait a couple of hours to hear from you. Talk about your day, the things around you, how much he/she means to you. Take time to stop once and awhile, enjoy the view and sneak in a kiss or two.
At some point grab your blanket and picnic basket, pick a nice spot (under a big shaded tree or in a nice, private area of the beach), and set up. Take in the view, talk more about life, snack, and enjoy the company of this special person next to you. If you brought pen and paper, jot down 5 goals the two of you have individually and collectively with the date on it so you can look back on it down the road. Something else you can do is snuggle up on the blanket, look up at the sky, and if there are clouds, play that game where you make shapes out of the clouds. Maybe you just want to snuggle up and keep on talking or looking into one another’s eyes. If it’s getting later, do some star gazing.
As you can see, the possibilities are endless. It’s all about taking time to enjoy the one you are with. Give each other undivided attention and enjoy where you are at. It’s simple, cheap, and sure to mean a lot to both of you!
