I love, love, love our date nights. And, with the cooler weather approaching quickly I wanted to share some free date night ideas perfect for fall with you folks.
Date nights are certainly not happening as frequently as they should in our house. But when they do, I love the dedicated time my husband and I are spending together focused on “us” as a couple and not as us as “parents”.
Sure, we usually spend the bulk of our date talking about our kiddo but we’re alone, we’re together and we’re having fun doing something that doesn’t involve diaper changes, folding laundry or playing with Play-Doh.
That’s a win right?
Free date nights are a must in our house. With every season change we look forward to trying new free things and spending some good quality time together to focus on our relationships.
Dates don’t have to cost a fortune!
In fact, these 10+ free date nights perfect for fall are a great way to reconnect with your partner without spending any money at all.
Here we go! Let’s get romantic shall we?
