Brining back the Romance in S&R

I thought it would be nice to get some romance on this board.  DH and I are getting closer to completing our first year of marriage and I am trying to think of some romantic ideas to celebrate our first year at home since we are on a budget or just spice up/make special a regular weeknight or weekend!  What have you done to add romance at home?


*It should have been Bringing in the subject...oops!*

Re: Brining back the Romance in S&R

  • Winter I find it tough.  Normally we try to arrange at least 2 date nights a month and schedule them.  We make a nice dinner at home or plan a nice dinner out.  In the summer its easier, many times we will have a picnic on the beach and walk around after wards while listening to the local bands.  We are pretty much home bodies so many times a nice meal at home, cheap wine and a movie from netflix works. 
  • I'm in the same boat: 4.5 months till one year... we want to take a four day weekend and go somewhere close/stay at home and do day stuff. I'm not sure what we are going to do... as for date nights, we have a Monday nights as our date nights. We're pretty much homebodies so we don't do much... just the regular stuff.
  • Buy a bottle of wine and some candles, make a nice meal, and dine by candlelight -- cheaper than going to a really fancy restaurant, better food than the cheap chain restaurants, and easier access to the bedroom (lol).

    Other ideas:

    Plan date nights... Don't just come home and say "so what would you like to do this evening/weekend?"  It doesn't have to be expensive activities -- things like free concerts, a local event, hiking or picnicking, etc.  Planning it is half the fun!

    Leave little notes for each other around the house.  My DH and I have slightly different work schedules, so he'll leave me a little post-it note in the kitchen in the morning with comments like "Good morning, beautiful" or "I love you."  I sometimes leave him notes to find when he gets home in the afternoon that say "Hi handsome, I hope you had a great day" or "I love you."  Little things, but they add up.

  • Some of the ideas on here are a bit cheesy but she does have some cute ideas!
