Project 52: Week 6


Two Thousand Seventy Four is the amount of date nights you will have if you have 40 years left of your life together and date once a week.

Doesn’t seem like a lot does it?

Having a fiery personality can put a damper on things sometimes, I get hot about a topic, then I make things not as enjoyable for date nights. Dave and I had a rough week, therefore date night was a little off.


I have no idea.

How petty and childish is it that I don’t remember.

So Dave wrote on his Facebook about a “wasted night” and then wrote 2074.

After I questioned him about it a few days later, he told me.

“2074 is the amount of date nights we have left”

40 years together…

2074 date nights to make special

2074 date nights that will be weekly offers to each other.

Last week was a wash on date night, we had kids, we had issues… we spent 3am-8am in bed talking Saturday night. That was our date “morning”…. We had each other…we napped for about 30 minutes before dating the kids on Saturday at the Arvada chocolate festival.

From now on, I won’t waste another date night… we deserve the best 2074… I’ll tell you how we are doing in 2050.


Have you joined in the Project 52: Date Nights challenge?

That's determination if you're having a date at 3-8 a.m.! :) We all have weeks like this. So it's good that you put it all in perspective. See you next week!

i love the idea that there are 2074 dates left (maybe more)... not all of them will be perfect, but that is OK. we all have bad days.

Love it. Especially that he thought about that on his own. Talking for 5 hours together sounds dreamy to me.
Love that you put you "dated" the kids too =) Those dates will seem to go the fastest..
