But we light the candles, turn on some music, open some sparkling cider and we enjoy dinner for 2 while the kids are either in bed or upstairs!
Strolling Through the Neighborhood During Sunset
Ty’s favorite thing to do is going on Sunday strolls around the neighborhood. The kids get their bikes or scooters out, we grab the stroller for the littlest one and we walk around the neighborhood together. As Ty and I walk we will occasionally hold hands, but most of all just enjoy each other’s company. These simple moments will spice up your marriage in no time!
Send them a Love Letter
I know mail is so old school, but how do you feel when you open the mailbox and there is an actual letter rather than a stack of junk mail and bills? Exactly! Then imagine your spouse opening the letter and seeing a note from his wife or all the amazing things you think about him. I can pretty much guarantee that sparks will be flying that night!
