Fright Night Date Night ♥

No matter how hectic our schedules can get, it's always so important to make time in our lives to nurture our relationships. Sometimes Ramiro and I only get together by late night and then it's too late for traditional date activities. So last week we made a new tradition up that is perfect for October: Fright Night Date Night!! It's SO much fun, you have to try it.

How it works is: you do activities you would usually do in the afternoon but late at night, when it's dark and creepy. We dressed warmly and headed to our favorite place, Île d'Orléans, where we climbed up the observation tower and watched the stars, took a stroll by the river, hung out by the church where we got married and took pictures of us as ghosts. In the dark of the night, all this seemed so scary! The whole time I kept getting goosebumps and hallucinating apparitions (oh the power of the mind). That's how I discovered that cuddling your man to feel safer is pretty romantic in a way.
I'm always a fan of seeing things in a new way and this date decidedly delivered!  I think you definitely need to try it! Might even be cool with kids if a little earlier in the night. A great way to put yourself in the Halloween spirit (that and scarttering mini pumpkins all over the house, I am a fan of both)!
I hope you have fun and try a new activity this week-end!

Let's be adventurous!
