So you all know how much I love pinterest, right?
It's an amazing thing to have so many deliciously beautiful projects, clothing, ideas, recipes, quotes, you name it, right at your fingertips.
Ideas pinning right and left -- there is so much to see and explore!
This summer I noticed that my little Year of Dates idea had been pinned. I was so flattered! I don't even know who the first pinner was.
Since then it's been re-pinned, and re-pinned, and pinned again. It seems that a lot of people really like the idea. Like, a lot of people because, this is just crazy, my blog stats hover around 1000-1500 visits (not page-views) a day. 75% of those originate from pinterest or from people linking my date basket idea on their blogs. This is insane.
I love the comments that have been coming in. They make me smile every time. Everyone seems so excited about this project and many are planning to do something similar for their spouse this Christmas. I love it!
But, I haven't been so great about posting our dates as they happen. We are still following through with the dates each month! With the holidays approaching & so many women planning to use this idea, I've received a lot of requests for the full list of my date ideas.
So over the next few days I'll be getting things up to speed. I just wanted to warn you that you can expect to see lots of "let's go on a date" blog posts popping up.
I hope this doesn't sound braggy at all, because that is so not my intent. I am just so excited that other people have the desire to nurture their marriages and relationships, they want more meaningful time together, and they want to do something tangible to make that happen. It's a win-win for everyone involved.
As Anna would say, "there's the love!"
