Just reading through that list has me so excited about this new season! Also before I finish I wanted to make sure and include the 101 COMPLETELY FREE DATE IDEAS
also the 50 FUN DATE IDEASand last but not least my FALL FUN CHECKLIST from a couple years ago that we use year after year!

I innetially wrote out these lists after posting to instagram that Martin and I strive for weekly dates, and since then we love to refer to them when we're headed out of the house without a plan for the night, and I hope that they can be inspiring to you as well! I've been getting enough emails about ideas for dates and seasonal activities that I figured these were too buried, so I hope you've enjoyed this post!

Have a great rest of your day, and please leave a favorite Fall date or activity of your own that's not included on the list!
