I’m going to let you all in on a little secret. This one is especially for those of you who are looking for a fun, affordable time with a special someone. It’s the cheapest date I know, and one of my favorites. It’s going to the park with your boo. I know. It’s completely revoluntionary.
But in all honesty, going to a park to walk around, explore and talk to your loved one can be a simply amazing time. So often I think the simple things in life can be underated, overlooked or taken for granted. People are so quick to talk about the amazing things they do on their social media platforms, but I think it’s just as important to share the simple, day-to-day things we do with the people we love.
I had this realization last weekend as I walked for miles around Fort Washington park with Will and Maddie (my doggie). We decided to do something outside that afternoon. Fort Washington seemed like a fun place to check out, since neither of has have been there, despite it’s close proximity to D.C.
Well it was such a good idea. It was absolutely beautfiul, and the hours we spent there flew by. Moments like that are my favorite. There is something about being outside that is so good for our souls.
I had this moment of realization as we walked around. I now it’s a cliche that is passed around so often — the tangible things in our lives are not important. It’s the special people we share our lives with and the moments with them that give our life value. The fact that, we can go and have that experience with someone special and it doesn’t cost anything, is what makes it invaluable.
So yes, it was the cheapest date. And it is something I’d reccomend everyone do on a regular basis. Pack a lunch. Have a picnic. Bring your dog. Do it your way, but just spend sometime outside with someone you love.
