Write Your Story

Looking for something a bit more romantic than “just” another evening at home? Ready to walk down memory lane with your spouse in a fun and creative way? Then I have just the date for you! This is a simple, but fun date that can be completed in one night or stretched out over many evenings for even MORE fun! 

For this date you will need:

  • 2 pens
  • Some paper or a notebook
  • Your spouse ;)
  • And LOTS of memories!

The great thing about this date is that it can be done so many different ways. You can do it all in one sitting, or break it up over several different nights. It’s all about personalizing it and doing it your own way. After you gather your materials, it’s time to get to writing and reminiscing together.

Start with the first moment that you saw each other. Take turns writing out what you remember; your first thoughts and impressions of the person who was later to become your spouse! Write it all out and compare notes. Then keep going! You can continue taking turns writing special events from different perspectives OR write them together and find creative ways to voice both of your thoughts and memories at the same time.

This could get really fun as you will both remember things that the other didn’t and be reminded of tiny details that you might have otherwise never recalled! If you need help with details or just need some extra inspiration, dig out old picture albums (or facebook photos) and try to remember what was going on in each photo as you write your story. Don’t worry so much about writing a grammatical masterpiece or recording each memory perfectly. Focus on having fun, laughing together and flirting as you re-live those early moments of young love! Be sure you save your writings someplace special so that you can revisit them on special occasions like anniversaries. Your children might even enjoy reading them one day! Still not sure what to write about? Here are a few prompts:

  • The Moment You Met
  • First Date
  • The Moment You Knew He/She was “The One”
  • Favorite Dating Memory (His & Hers)
  • First “I Love You”
  • Meeting the In-Laws
  • The First Kiss
  • The Engagement Story
  • Wedding Day – His Perspective
  • Wedding Day – Her Perspective
  • First Anniversary
