When I started this blog, I wanted it to capture my journey in 2015, and not be just another “beauty” blog. So I thought a fun post would be to describe fun date ideas that my boyfriend and I have done, as we prepare for the fun outdoor activities we can do this spring!
Since we began dating, one of the first things we tried together was wine tasting. We’ve been probably to about 15 different wineries since – and have many more scheduled! It makes for a fun day in the winter because some have cozy fireplaces and usually its a slow time. But since it has been warmer, we’ve been able to drive around and try a few different ones in one day, and walk around the grounds. It is a perfect year-round idea!
We try to find local activities because we love trying new things. I had always wanted to go to the Philadelphia Flower Show, because I hear it was gorgeous and that it was a total blast. Before we went I had friends that had gone, and posted their photos on Facebook. When I saw that you could feed butterflies, I made sure that was the first stop on our list. Look at the cute pictures!
For Valentine’s Day I gave my boyfriend several Groupon/Living Social cards with dates picked out for us to do as the weather was warmer. Because I’m into art, and used to work in a ceramics studio I thought a fun date would be to paint pottery. We went to our local Color Me Mine, and I painted a flower dish and he painted the stem of a wine glass (they attach the glass for you!). He was SO into it, and it was perfect for a recent rainy/snowy day. It was so exciting to go pick up our treasures, and we can’t wait to go again!
This past weekend we so desperately wanted to be outside, and tried to take a walk along the river last night. It was such a beautiful night, but still a little cold. It was perfect though because it was a fun, relaxing date and sent us in search of hot chocolate!
