Fall’s here now and we’re moving on to winter. For most of us, the weather is cold and it’s difficult to get out and enjoy things like long walks or even dinner out without feeling like our feet are freezing and hearing our babes complain that their legs are cold. You just can’t do the same things when it’s frosty outside that you can do when it’s warm. That doesn’t mean that you have to stay in! Here are some ideas to do even when the weather outside is frightful.
Local Bed and Breakfast
If you are in an area that doesn’t make bank on its winter tourism, then you are going to be able to get a smoking hot deal on any of your local bed and breakfasts. These small houses have a lot of charm to them, always offer delicious food, and are a perfect way to spend a fancy night away without breaking the bank. The local B and Bs will be actively hoping to get some extra income, so you can probably even book a honeymoon suite for rock bottom prices. Pack yourself a frisky overnight bag and get ready to have an evening dedicated to just you and your lady.
Ice Skating or Skiing
If it’s going to be freezing outside, you may as well enjoy it. If you’re the sort who likes to ice skate or ski, now is the time to bust out the snow suit. If your babe hasn’t tried it, now is an excellent time to try to teach her the ropes. Make sure that you start slow and small, however, you don’t want her to remember the whole event by falling on her ass. One of the best parts about enjoying winter sports is that you’re going to have to go inside to warm up sooner or later, and that usually means a hot shower together.
Looking at Lights
When the Christmas season rolls around, many of the more affluent neighborhoods in cities have light competitions or festivals of lights. Fill up a thermos with something hot to drink and hop into the car with your babe to go out and look at them. This sort of little date is wonderful because it’s free outside of the cost of gas and looking at Christmas lights tends to put everyone in a better mood. Some of those neighborhoods go ALL OUT as well and really put on an impressive show.
Last but not least is the date in. If you have kids, send them off to the sitter, if you have pets, send them off to the sitter too. This is about you and your woman. The two of you can enjoy making a meal that you wouldn’t otherwise prepare, set the table for two, and just get to enjoy each other’s company.
Very little is more personal than cooking with your partner, you can spend the whole time flirting and after the meal (or while it’s cooking) you can enjoy each other’s company. The quiet time to reconnect will do you both a lot of good.
