National Spouse Day is only a little over a week off. Or as we like to think of it, the Valentine’s Day test run.
Let’s face it, the holidays are so packed with events and family time it’s sometimes hard to find time for just the two of you. And, that’s ok – the holidays are all about family time.
However, it’s a new year, and the next big holiday is targeted specifically at couples. Also, it might have been a few months since the two of you really hung out together, so it’s a good idea to schedule a little intentional one-on-one time beforehand. Neither of you want a Valentine’s Day that feels like you forgot what a date is.
