A snowshoe date
I don't talk about it much, but I am a big fan of the idea of dating your spouse. Although we have been married for over ten and a half years I still get excited at the prospect of getting dressed up, making reservations, buying tickets and have a concrete plan for an evening. However, lately I have equally enjoyed the "day date" which consists of anything we do minus our son. A couple weeks ago, we extended our staycation by heading directly to the mountains after checking out of our hotel. As much as I love bringing our son along for our adventures there was something very nostalgic and romantic about it just being the two of us together in the outdoors. While we were snowshoeing it brought back a flood of memories of our past adventures and made me happy how much we took advantage of our time together before children.
I am always delighted when a stranger takes a half decent photo of us, it pretty much makes my day!
The entire time we were snowshoeing it was snowing, but the longer we stayed out the heavier it started to snow. It does not matter how many times I have been snowshoeing, it will always feel magical when it snows while we are out.
