It’s the new year and we are rolling. How are you feeling so far? Whether you make resolutions, set goals, or -like us- start with a fast from something for 21 days, I hope you feel you are doing great at whatever it is you’ve set your heart and mind to. If you feel overwhelmed trying to figure out “How do I make my life more intentional or fuller or better?! I have too much to work on!” … Girl, slow down. We all do. Here’s the trick to ACTUALLY acheiving a goal you make at the start of the year: Pick one thing you want to get better at this year. Just one! And spend time every single day on it, and before you know it, you’ll no longer be saying you want to be better at “x.” You’ve just become great at it naturally by focusing a little on it with intentionality.
A goal of ours this year is to be more intentional with our time together at home. Less TV, more collaboration, more chatting, more discussion, more laughter, more of… the good stuff! We can get so wrapped up in our jobs and work, yes… even in the evenings after dinner, or scrolling on IG and spending more time vegging out with strangers on squares than one another simply because we are tired, and we want that to go. A way we can intentionally do that is having DATE NIGHTS at home as often as we want. A date night at home means turning off the TV, picking some music, playing a game, reading a book aloud together, making the dinner together… It can be just about anything as long as you both are in agreement this is intentional together time and it doesn’t matter what we are doing or the we are under our own roof. We are having a date night!
This is why I am so excited to introduce you to Datebox by Happily Co. This box delivers cute date nights AT HOME straight to your front door. We had a star gazing package, full with a fondue making kit, silly question cards, and a map for star gazing by the season! SO COOL! DateBox is a subscription service that you can take advantage of so that every month feels like Christmas when something fun for you and your spouse arrives! There are no excuses for not spending time together when a date is delivered straight to you. Dating your spouse can feel hard when life is tough or schedules are chaotic or you have kid(s)… but that’s the beauty of this subscription. Find recipes, games, projects… Every month is entirely different, but it’s something you get to do together and laugh through!

I hope this encourages you to make intentional time with your special someone more important this year without having to spend tons of money on “Quality Time.” Date night doesn’t have to be an expensive dinner every week! It can be right at home in your living room for so much less (which also helps us achieve our goal for our finances this year!). It’s all a win-win for us, and I am so excited to explore fun, intentional date nights at home with my favorite guy in my favorite space we’ve created for us. Happy dating, y’all!
