We all seem to be so busy these days. I am the first to admit that couple time in my house gets pushed to the back burner more than it should. Honestly, I can’t really remember the last time The Husband and I have had a proper date. Isn’t that sad?

Just because it’s sometimes difficult to plan a night out and hire a babysitter doesn’t mean that we have to ignore couple time altogether. Even an at home date night takes some planning since we have a teenager who goes to bed later and by then, The Husband is snoring on the couch. We need to make a conscious effort to keep the love alive even when time gets away from us.

Cook a nice dinner together.

Even if one of you can’t cook, you can still make a great meal together by having the non-cook in the family chop vegetables, gather ingredients, or make a salad.

Watch a movie together.

Once the kids have gone to bed, don’t sit around looking at your phones. Pick out a movie or TV series, cuddle on the couch, and watch a movie together. Be sure to put the phones away so you are really watching together and talking to each other.
