What it is?
If I’m brutally honest, I was rather sceptical with the whole idea of alphabet dating the idea is basically grounded in creating a date around a given letter of the alphabet. So A could be for aquarium, animal park, Aberdeen, asian cuisine… you get the idea. I think the original post that I found inspiration was here (which also has 105 different suggestions and ideas to get you started) – the joys of a Cosmo article.
Why do we do it?
I and in turn, we decided to do it because it was fun. I explain the concept to my husband and we love a challenge so we decided to start thinking about what we could do, where we could go – to nudge us into spending time together. Doing things for us. After the first few were planned, it became easy to develop and we’ve been enjoying the ideas so far. I journal and blog the dates to help create a digital scrapbook.
