Our date night this week involved discussing our hopes and dreams. Dane and I feel like we are at a point in life where we are almost starting over, so we decided to talk about what goals, hopes, and dreams we have for our future and family.
This date can be as complicated as simple as you want it. The idea of the date is to simply sit and talk about your hopes and dreams and them write it down. All you really need are a few sheets of paper (or even a napkin will work) and a pen. I love art journaling so I created a mini art journal to record our thoughts. To create the art journal I covered a couple pieces of cardboard for the covers and then used typing paper for the pages.
Get as creative as you would like with your topics of discussion. Our topics were
Deepest Thoughts: A "mission statement" for our marriage.
Together: Adventures we want to have together.
Prayers for Our Year: A list of the things we are believing God for in 2014
We Want To Be: 5 words we want to define our lives and marriage
Our Home: The culture we hope to establish in our future home
Journey: Places we will travel to together
Treasures: Items we would love to have as part of our lives.
