Looking for a way to escape with someone? Mommy-free time is great, but often it’s nice to spend it with a friend, co-worker, family member or romantic partner. Fly from the nest for a couple of hours. Call up the babysitter and let them know you’ll be hitting up a winery on Sunday.
Valentine’s Day is on a Monday this year, and it my be tough to motivate someone for a date night on a week night. It’s important though. Stay firm with your desires to spend a couple of hours away. It will do wonders for your mind and relationships. According to Arthur Aron, a professor of psychology who spoke to the New York Times, “date night” is about reinvention. Doing the same old thing every couple of weeks can create stability and safety, but to renew that love commitment between you and your partner, the goal is to “keep injecting novelty” into date night events, says Aron.
