When Jeff and I met I was legit sitting on the couch at his house chatting with my friend and his roommate. Our first official date was watching the Discovery Channel on that same couch and laughing at the “real facts” on Snapple lids. The date that led to our first kiss was going and seeing Moana (seriously love that movie!). The date after that probably involved ordering food in. In case you haven’t gotten the picture we are homebodies. Don’t get me wrong, we love a good adventure, but we just relax into old habits.
Fast forward two years and it seems like we’ve had a whirlwind romance full of adventure. Heck we’ve been to two countries, Iceland and London, together. We’ve gone on vacation to California and Oregon. We moved into our first home, and we’ve gotten married! But all the in betweens find us on our couch. We love being at home! Streaming “Friends” on Netflix is our old habit that is easy to relax into. When we got married we decided we wanted to do something more. We needed date nights, but ones that fit into our lifestyle.
Enter Crated with Love With Love – a subscription date box. The premise is really simple: have a date night at home without having to do any of the prep work. Each box includes 4 or 5 date night challenges and activities and they include all the items that are needed to do the date!
This sounds like hyperbole, but this date was literally the most fun we’ve had on a regular date in months! I loved it so much that I gave a box as a gift to every couple who came to my first ever Susannah Lynn Photography holiday party! I hope you enjoy this recap and it inspires you to have your own date night!
The board game was a ton of fun! And I definitely won (although I may have refilled the dice once or twice) We also spent time writing out gift ideas for each other and ourselves! That was my favorite part because my love language is gifts and it helped me realize just how well we know each other.
