Is anyone else enjoying the solitude and connection quarantine is bringing?
I’m not saying I don’t want to get out of here… I’m just also enjoying time with my family, putting down my phone and living in the moment.
And of course, at some point I was over the “Netflix and Chill” situation and thought you might be, too.
I really wanted to use this time to do other things with Casey while we had the chance to dig deep into our relationship and focus on creating a relationship that lights us up and unites us. Especially during this time of social distancing, we need each other now more than ever, and wanted to make a list for you and your boo to enjoy as well!
If quarantine is making you a little quar-insane— or you’re basically through all of your Netflix shows and ready to date your partner again, then this blog post is for you. Check out these 30 date ideas to keep you entertained during the COVID-19 Quarantine.
