A healthy relationship is the greatest gift you can give your children.
If you have children, you know that sometimes the focus is shifted on them, and not on your spouse. I was guilty of it when our kids were babies and I am still guilty of it sometimes. Kids can take over your life! And that’s okay– but you have to make time for the person that helped you bring those sweet kids into your life. The sense of security that your healthy relationship gives your children is the best gift they can ever receive.
You used to be totally into each other.
Lost that lovin’ feeling? It happens. It’s normal. Between diapers, jobs, home ownership, and LIFE in general, romance can get pushed to the way side. Getting the chance to get away from your home and away from the stress of you everyday life gives you an opportunity to connect with your spouse on a deeper level. Without the distractions, you just might discover why you ended up with them in the first place.
It’s a good excuse to be at your best.
Date nights are a reason for me to dress up. My day to day wardrobe consists of a v-neck tee and shorts or workout clothes for the most part. Date nights give me a chance to put on my favorite dress or skinny jeans, a top I know Brandon loves, the diamond necklace he gifted to me before our wedding, and a new perfume that I absolutely love. Vera Wang Embrace Marigold and Gardenia fragrance is perfect for summer date nights. It’s light and fresh, the peach color instantly reminds me of summer, and I love the fruity and floral tones it has. It’s a confidence boost too, knowing that my husband is seeing the best version of me for an evening.
It solidifies your commitment.
Committing to a date night can be tough. Securing a sitter and clearing your schedule for an evening shows your spouse that you are committed to your relationship. In short, when you show up for them, they are more likely to show up for you! It strengthens your bond and helps keep your priorities in check.
Our last date night was a wedding a couple weekends ago. We had such a great time and it was so nice to be dressed up and having grown up conversations. We have learned to make the best of the kid free time we have in the evenings, but sometimes it is just so fun to get dressed up and go somewhere! We were sure ready to get back to our kids the next morning!
