Date Night Explosion

Date Ideas for Married CouplesTyranny of the urgent often pushes Date Night off the calendar.  FTF wants to challenge you to put Date Night back on your calendar on a regular basis.  

We have done our part and come up with some creative dates.  We want you to share your creative date night ideas with us so we can pass them along to everybody!

 
Here's the challenge:  Mark Date Night on your calendar at least every other week for the next two months.  

Feel free to borrow ideas from us and add your creative genius to the plan.  Share a picture of you on your date or a video telling us about your date on Facebook or email ftf@firstthings.org (Keep it PG13, please).
