- Touching base and praying daily
- Having a weekly uninterrupted “Talk Time” (for about an hour)
- Spending a day off each week together trying to include at least one or two fun date type activities in that day
- Go on an annual marriage retreat that, thankfully, our church hosts each February. (In fact, it’s this coming weekend!)
- Take an annual weekend or longer trip together (without the kids) to a fun or romantic destination
Take a trolley bus tour of our very interesting nearby city, St. Louis, Missouri. We were told so much history and trivia, as well as, pointing out other exciting tourist destinations on the ride. This is especially astonishing since I’m a native of St. Louis. Check with your local city for something similar.

Go for a ride along a picturesque highway. We have one nearby that the locals call the Alton “Great River Road” that runs alongside the Mississippi River. The bluffs that crash down into the edge of the river make for a breath-taking landscape especially in the fall and spring.

Visit a local wax or other type of museum. We visited a St. Louis wax museum and were left less than impressed. But it still made for a hilarious time of making fun of the terrible displays! (BTW, the picture captures two of the museum’s more impressive figures! No political statement intended!)
Go cemetery hunting. I know this one sounds weird, perhaps because it is! As I’ve confessed before, I’m a genealogy geek and love to hunt down my ancestor’s graves, but sometimes it’s just interesting to read the headstones of unknown others who’ve gone before us.
Please join in the conversation and tell me what you and your spouse do to inject some excitement and freshness into your marriage.
