Dinner and Movie
Whether you’re a parent of two or a mother to many –it’s hard to get me time.

And us time? Just forget it.

In a world that takes us from school to soccer and from work to Walmart and back again, how do we find time for each other while still finding time for ourselves and the things we love? Simple, we merge the two. Take for instance this conversation between my husband and I last weekend.

Me: Let’s do something romantic this weekend.

Husband: I’ll check the tides.

Me: A sunset cruise?

Husband: …and Red Fishing.

So we went red fishing at sunset and while we didn’t catch any fish, we did catch up with each other. I had to rethink date night to get that time and I was so glad I did.

Now let’s say you either A. Don’t like to fish or B. Don’t have a sitter. No problem, there are plenty of other ways to spend time with loved ones this fall.

Coastal Botanical Gardens has you covered with the Fall Gardenfest on Friday, October 23 from 12-4 p.m. or Saturday, October 24, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Walk hand in hand through an array of fall colors while watching the kids run around the maze of flowers. You and yours can find everything from gardening tools to a great selection of plants from local nursery vendors. It’s an easy way to awaken your inner gardener (ahem, me time) while spending quality time together.
