Summer is finally here! But if you’re like me and live in 100+ degree heat, sometimes finding the motivation to go out and have QCT (quality couple time) is hard. Even getting home after a day of work it’s hard to want to spend time together because sometimes you just want to throw on old comfy clothes and vegetate on the couch (which is something we’re totally for), but for those of you that want new activities to try, we have the perfect list for you!

Rooftop Happy Hour

Picture this: you’re on a rooftop, you’re with your significant other, the sun is setting, the kids are at home, and you have a cold beer in your hands. Life is good. Happy hour at restaurants (or bars) are always a great mini-date! Prices are cheaper and it’s a chance for you and your S.O. to take a step back from life, enjoy each other’s company, and give you a chance to talk about your day!

Go on a Picnic

Picnics are a great way to take a quick break from your home life, you don’t have to spend much or travel far to have a romantic evening! To make this even more of a event, find a park nearby your house and walk to it with your S.O. Check out some easy-to-make recipes here.

Throw Water Balloons

Going back to the “living in 100+ degree heat,” this might be the best way to unwind and cool off. Plus, you and your S.O. will feel like kids again running around and throwing water balloons at each other!

Visit a Farmers Market
