Date Night – First Date Anniversary

Date Night Challenge Come Home For Comfort

This post is part of my 2014 Date Night Challenge series

I’ve mentioned before that Paul and I share our Google calendars with each other. It is a great way to keep up with his busy work schedule, but I also keep birthdays, holidays and other special events on our calendar so that each year is pre-filled with all the important dates. My husband sometimes has a hard time remembering certain dates and holidays, and I’ve found that our Google calendar takes that pressure off him.

For instance, last week Paul planned our date night on the anniversary of our first date! He would never have remembered that on his own – he’s a wonderful husband – but those things aren’t as important to him as they are to me. Having the date on the calendar allowed him to very easily make me feel very special and loved.

To celebrate the 4th anniversary of our first date, we went out for supper at one of our favorite restaurants. After we ordered, we talked about that first date…what we wore, our first impressions of each other, and how our love has grown and developed since then. It was so sweet and romantic!

Do you celebrate your first date anniversaries? Even if you don’t remember the exact date, you could recreate the memories by visiting the place or doing something similar to your first date. Even going out to dinner and reminiscing about your first impressions of each other can rekindle some old feelings of young love!

  1. Great way to encourage Paul’s memory with linking up your calendars! You’re a Smart cookie and Paul’s a sweet husband for implementing a plan on your dating anniversary! We’ve had lots of January dates over the years, celebrating our first date. It’s fun to remember and even more fun to make new memories!
