This post has stuff about a previous relationship. My perspective has changed
Here’s a fun themed date night idea. Use copper or pennies as the theme. It sounds a little odd but it really gets your creative juices flowing. Mary and I started by going to the Copper Kettle, a local Indian food place. Then we went and made wishes at a fountain, of course we had like a jillion pennies so we had lots of fun throwing them at the fountain and trying to hit it. We started late so we didn’t have enough time to finish in-theme but what we could have done is maybe checked out a documentary from the library or blockbuster on Abraham Lincoln. We actually ended up just looking at stuff at Barnes and Nobel, which is one of our favorite dates. I guess we could have looked for books on copper. I bet there is some interesting stuff!
I got the idea from FamiyLife.com. They send out an email every so often called "Simply Romantic Tips" and it’s taylored for both men and women. They are much more eloquent that I:
Use all the pennies in your piggy bank for a date. Don’t spend any other money. See how creative you can be!
