    Awesome, awesome, awesome list. Though, I’m not sure sky diving is one I’ll actually do – I’m printing the list off for future reference.

    • Susan says:

      Sky diving can be terrifying for some people but exhilarating for others. It’s strange to see the ground rushing up at you, and the air is so strong that you have to make sure your mouth is shut; otherwise you temporarily suffocate. (Ask me how I know…)

  2. Sophie Bowns says:

    What beautiful ideas! Your list is awesome!

  3. Sigh. I vaguely remember romance…

    • Susan says:

      When you’ve got kids, it’s hard to find the energy for things that used to be romantic back when you were single. When you’ve got kids, you also have more responsibility and less money. So it makes sense that we don’t go on as many dates when we’re married as when we were single.

  4. Penny says:

    Great list although sky diving will be crossed off immediately as I won’t be doing that! Great jumping off point though to keep your dates from becoming dull.

    • Susan says:

      The sky diving instructor never told me to shut my mouth while I was free falling, so I felt like I was suffocating. The parachute part was fun, though…

  5. Every now and then my husband and I get out. Right now we spend an hour and a half together at Starbucks each week while we wait for one of our children at an activity.
