fifteen valentine's date ideas + a playlist

love is all around this week... one of my favorite things about february. the weather here has been in the 60's and 70's lately... so the spring tones are even more 'in the air' than normal. (i love the colors of this month so much) my parents went on dates and trips a lot when we were little (we were comfortable being left ... and i think that's important!) and i also think that it's one of the reason why they have been married for over 35 years. date nights or time spent together doesn't have to be overly expensive... there are simple and inexpensive ways to do so.
go check out this beautiful inspiration... maybe my favorite i have seen yet!

here are some simple and fun ways to spend time together:

1. go to a cute cafe or a diner (my husband loves diners! his grandparents were restaurant owners and it's nostalgic for him) 
2. take a walk or go on a hike (somewhere pretty!) 
3. do a game night
4. pick up dairy queen, make a cheese board, and watch netflix (our current binge has been gilmore girls) 
5. wine tasting
6. go on a picnic or go camping 
7. indoor rock climbing
8. bake cookies together
9. volunteer! give back together
10. make pizza together
11. take an art class 
12. go bowling or roller skating (hello, memories!) 
13. go out to dinner and order appetizers
14. go thrift shopping
15. go on a short road trip

a gift idea:
i have given these calendars from artifact uprising several times as gifts and they are perfect. 
{like the february after my sister and her husband got married... most of the photos were from the previous year of festivities) i also love that they are made out of reclaimed pine wood. also, my husband and son brought me home a bouquet of fresh tulips on saturday (you may have seen them on insta.) 

what about you?
how do you love to celebrate 'love' this month?
