July Date Night

Shouldn’t date night be a routine for us all? Of course it should. So grab your man, follow our plan and enjoy….

JULY HIKE + PICNIC date

Getaways from the hustle of daily routines, work stress and mounting to-do’s are important for our own mental health—and they help strengthen the bonds we have with our loves. So, grab your hiking boots (or tennis shoes) and day-trip to nature’s wooded trails. Then, breathe. Relax. Hold his hand. And really see what’s before you. And most of all, don’t rush. It’s not about reaching the trail’s end; it’s about the journey.

Stop and smell the roses. Lay in the grass barefoot, watch wildlife and discuss your hopes, dreams, childhood memories… and whatever other topics may arise.

Must Have’s

Get Digital

These Boots are Made for Walking … yes, and that’s just what they’ll do. Wear comfortable hiking boots or lace up your fave pair of sneakers. Be ready for uneven trails, some climbing—and whatever else may approach your pathway.

Picnic Blanket

Backpack

The Outfit

Water for Two

Mini-Vino

Why not present a few plastic wine glasses, mini bottles of wine and a few chocolate-covered strawberries (that hopefully haven’t melted!)? Sound too mushy? So what. He’ll like it anyway (as will you) and he’ll love you more for the forethought.

Then, listen to the birds, hear the buzz of the bees and be enveloped in nature, silence and serenity. We think you both deserve it.
