As you are probably more than aware, we are in that season of giving thanks. Though there was an attempt to not “go with the flow”, and to come up with something that wasn’t completely season-dependent, the attempt fell short and we gave in to the overwhelming desire to join in with the thankful festivities. Besides, there’s nothing better to kindle that flame than to sit down together on a cold day with a cup of hot cocoa, and reminisce on all the things we’re thankful for. And as a bonus, we made our “Thankful List” a beautifully adorned one. We first went in search for the best leaves in the neighborhood and, since it was a little rainy, enjoyed a walking cuddle under our umbrella. Once our selection was made we started the process of flattening our leaves, placing them inside a large book and using a few extra as weight. Then commenced our sipping and thanking. When our list was complete… our leaves were not yet flat!! There would be no laminating tonight. =/ We laughed and figured that we’ll have to have another short date in the near future to add our adornments, and complete our beautiful creation.
Romantic Fall Walk = Free
Leaves = Free
Paper = Pennies
Laminating Sheet = $0.40 ($4/pack of 10)
Total Date Night = $0.50
You may want to break this date up into two times, as we did… or you may want to pick out the leaves ahead of time so they’ll be flat by date night. If you chose the latter, you can just enjoy the walk and start the reminiscing early, and then write down what you’ve thought about on the walk!
