Summertime is a special time. Some are already complaining about the heat, but I’ll take this any day over the white stuff. And now that we’ve got the kids all squared away with their summer activities, it’s time to schedule some fun in the sun with your spouse! I love creating new memories and finding new things to do with my hubby. So I scoured the interwebs for some ideas to inspire you to turn up the heat this summer.
Here are 6 Simple, Fun & Sexy Ideas for Summer Romance in Your Marriage:
1. Surprise date:
I absolutely love this idea of something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. What I love about this date idea is that it’s a celebration of the love you have for one another, and truly allows you to reminisce on the things that brought you together. This would be a perfect idea especially for a summer anniversary celebration.
2. Dream date:
Create the date of your spouse’s dreams – literally! From the location, attire, food and activities, this short and simple survey will give you absolutely everything you need to know to plan your spouse’s dream date. No more guessing or stressing about what to do or whether they’ll like it. As an added bonus, you can have them fill out the survey (three at a time) at the beginning of every quarter, and then you can pull them out on a monthly basis at random and get to planning.
3. Summer concert:
What better way to say summer than to go out and enjoy all the local concerts and festivals happening around you? From the live bands to the local artists performances, it’s bound to be a great time. Not sure where to look? Check out this line-up of summer music festivals happening around the world, and look for a city near you.
4. Slow dance: Does anyone still do that?
And I don’t mean when you’re out at a party or a wedding. I mean, just randomly break into a high school giddy couple and just start dancing with each other around the house. Get on Pandora and listen to slow jams while you reminisce about your first date or first dance on your wedding night. This song just screams summer – “Slow Dance” by John Legend:
5. Cuddle up:
Every month, I try to schedule a “do nothing” weekend (unless something is urgent, nothing can fill up that time). Why? Because there is always.something.going.on. And I’ve decided that I can’t be everywhere all the time. And I don’t know about you, but I love to cuddle. So I’m going to schedule in some cuddle time this summer. And what better way to make it more fun than to add this cuddle kit to the mix? Get an empty basket and fill it with some special treats just for you and your spouse.
6. Get naked:
While we’re on the subject of cuddling, what better way to do it? Hey, temps will continue to rise, so why not take advantage of the situation? Did you know that July 14th is National Nude Day? So by all means, take this time to celebrate with your spouse. And you can start your date off with these 25 kisses.
Whatever way you decide to turn up the volume of romance in your marriage this summer, be sure to just have fun with it. Cherish every moment, and get ready to build upon a lifetime of memories.
