One of my favorite things to do at the end of each month is sit down and plan out the next month. I especially love to plan out our family activities, daily activities with my kids, meals and all of our date nights for the month.
The nice thing about planning your dates in advance is that you can 1. hire a babysitter in time 2. budget for what you have planned 3. look for deals and 4. have something to look forward to.
Plan a night to sit together and go over events you want to attend (check our upcoming events calendar), activities you want to do, and restaurants you've been antsy to try. You could even grab your favorite takeout and make a date out of planning your dates after work and/or the kids are in bed one night.
Think forward to July, what are some dates that you would like to go on? Make note of them so that when you do sit down and plan, you remember what they are!
