Every winter I'm faced with the same question, what is there for me to do? Making plans to go out in the summer is always easier and cheaper with the weather being far more appealing for outdoor activities and adventure. A lot of my go-to winter activities are either closed or out of my comfort zone this winter but thinking outside the box has helped me find fun thing around the city and at home to keep me busy this winter. Whether you'll be going out with the girls, your boo, or spending much needed alone time, these dates are guaranteed to help fight off FOMO and the winter blues.

DATES AT HOME
Overall what makes a date an at-home date is the time, energy, and focus you put into the date. None of these dates are profound or new but incorporating them into your relationship to intentionally switch up your routine is what will make the date worth remembering.
Picnic- Picnics were my absolute favorite date during the summer and easy to recreate in the living room. Grab the picnic basket and blanket out of the closet, make your favorite foods, and enjoy!
Cook/Bake-off- Cooking at home has definitely worn its course this year. Make cooking fun again by adding friendly competition into it.
