Once upon a time, I found one of the first viral Pinterest pins created by the amazing Shannon Brown. Shannon decided to make dates intentional and gave her husband a Christmas gift of 12 envelopes – each with a pre-planned, pre-paid date to open each month of the upcoming year.
This was just pure genius, and that pin’s longevity and copycats only further prove that! I decided to copy her, and put my own spin on the gift making a date folder, and gave Jacob this gift our first Christmas married. Don’t worry, I told Shannon about it 🙂
Through this project, we had an amazing year, and I also became great blogging friends with Shannon! I didn’t want it to end when the first year was up, so I went ahead and did it again. Since then I’ve found every Christmas, birthday, holiday- you name it, Jacob now asks for pre-planned, pre-paid dates. Here are some of our posts to get you started with some ideas for your own 12 Months of Dates!
