Uh oh. I'm starting to second guess myself and these date ideas. Not that I'm second guessing DOING them. But as I was browsing online for ideas, someone mentioned that they stopped dating because her expectations of perfection were too high.
OOoooh that kinda hits home. Am I too ambitious?? Am I expecting too much out of our dates? Am I adding so much stress on myself to get things perfect, that I'll not enjoy the dates? It's a good thing to keep in mind as I make these plans. I have to remember I am doing 1 date a WEEK... that's not a lot of time to bring together the fancy stuff. My *PLAN* is to have all the stuff for dates a couple months in advance. SO then I can just go to the date box for the supplies I need for said date. But we know how plans go, don't we????
I just hope I'm not being overly ambitious. I want these to be a great time to connect with my husband, to add an extra spark to our marriage, to just spend time with him. Perfection isn't needed. I just need to remember that.
