It is time once again for the A to Z Blogging Challenge Theme Reveal! For those of you who haven’t traveled through the alphabet with me before, this is your chance. Beginning Friday April 1 and ending Saturday April 30 (with the exception of Sundays) I, along with hundreds of other bloggers, will be filling the universe (well internet) with our own takes on what the letters A to Z can mean.
This will be my 7th year and my themes so far have been music, scrapbooking concerts (twice), the A to Z of Michaels Arts and Crafts store, scrapbooking in general and last year I did the A to Z of San Francisco. I was struggling to come up with an idea for this year. While I love doing the scrapbooking of my concerts, I wasn’t sure I could get another alphabet’s worth of different artists and even if I could stretch it using song titles, I knew I didn’t have the time to scrapbook 26 more shows before April. I haven’t been driving to San Francisco routinely and I think I pretty much got all of the main sites last year anyway. I’m not working outside the house (yet) so I have no interesting stores to take you through. What’s a girl to do? Google it of course!
So I Googled “A to Z” and several possibilities came up but the one I settled on is “The A to Z of Dating.” Even though the hubby and I have been married for 37 years (38 in May), I still believe in date nights. When we first got married, before the kids came along, I told him that it was important to me that we not lose sight of why we got together in the first place. Of course with the kids and life circumstances (work, health issues, lack of funds, a pandemic – you get the idea) it was not always easy to get some time to ourselves and there were many years when dating just wasn’t happening.
But, with this A to Z challenge I’m going to try and show some things that you can do for a date night that don’t necessarily cost much money or take a lot of time. I’ll be going through our old photos to relive some of those early dates (which could be a date in itself!) and hopefully we can go on a couple of new experiences that I can write about during the month ahead. I’m looking forward to exploring this topic and hope that you’ll enjoy it too. Got any ideas for those tricky months like Q, X, Y, Z? Will you be doing the A to Z this year?
