Date Idea Alert! A Trip Down Memory Lane

Relaxing at Santa Barbara City College

I quite honestly dreaded bring my boyfriend (now husband) home to meet my parents. Sure enough, my mother went into the tale of my birth and broke out the dusty baby book and volumes of childhood photos she’d amassed over the years. Surprisingly, my husband remarked how much he enjoyed learning more about me, and how his love had increased after seeing me in a different light . . . AWW right? So skip, skip, skip. . . Introducing a great new date idea (that has nothing to do with your mother!): a trip down memory lane!


Select a few points of interest from your life before you met your sweetheart. Think of milestones: your first job, graduation, etc. and places you frequented: favorite hangout spot, favorite get away, etc. Plan your date around visiting these places—it doesn’t have to be anything super fancy or rehearsed. I took my hubby to my college campus. Turned out there was an art show in the library (I was an art major) and college campuses are beautiful places to walk around with lots of areas to relax and have a picnic or quick snack. Afterwards, we took the scenic route to a favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurant my sister and I would meet at on Tuesdays to unwind. Great memories and old places made new again. It was an awesome date! Where will you take your sweetheart?

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment. This doesn’t mean you have to do away with the DJ--an experienced MC can be a great asset to assist with your event schedule,
