Day 6 is all about reenacting a favorite date. While we didn't reenact it, I shared my favorites. For the past 7 days we've done a Relationship Challenge. Today I thought it would be a good time to check in and see how it's going. I'd love to hear your thoughts on your favorite post so far!!
Day 1 - Stare into each other's eyes for at least three minutes.
Day 2 - Go for a walk in an unexplored street in your neighborhood
Day 3 - Have a picnic for dinner. Bad Weather? Set up your blanket indoors!
Day 4 - Leave a special note in their lunch, purse or wallet that they find on the way to work.
Day 5 - Pick a small home improvement project, like updating your framed photos or reorganizing the bookshelf.
Day 6 - Reenact a favorite date night from your relationship.
Day 7 - Send a funny internet meme to make them laugh during the day.
Day 8 - Dance at home to your wedding song or favorite tune.

Day 25 - Find a local non-profit at which to volunteer for the day.
Day 26 - Find an interesting documentary on Netflix that neither of you have seen.
Day 27 - Celebrate an accomplishment from the week - no matter how big or small.
Day 28 - Make a time capsule of your relationship to open at a later date.

The Challenge started with staring into each other's eyes for 3 minutes! Which when talking turned out to be pretty easy!!
Day 3 was a picnic, minimal words just each other. It was perfect, if not a little blurry.
You can't really see it, and I can't take a better picture because it's packed right now, but you get the jist. He doesn't write much but he does manage to find the best cards!
Today is day 7
Send a funny internet meme to make them laugh during the day.
We don't usually send each other funny memes. But I did find this one for his birthday!
