A Weekend Away From The City

Although I live in New York City, I spend a decent amount of time in pretty much the opposite of Manhattan: Indiana. My boyfriend’s family lives in Indiana, so when I visit home (Chicago) to see him, we’ll sometimes spend the weekend in the countryside (is that what it would be called?). It’s very refreshing to get a break from the busy urban life that … Continue reading A Weekend Away From The City

Long Distance Christmas Ideas

Thankfully, my boyfriend and I will be in the same place for Christmas, but for a lot of people in long distance relationships, they will be in separate parts of the country. We were actually planning some long distance Christmas ideas because originally, our plans were not going to work out where we would be in the same place; but we moved some things around … Continue reading Long Distance Christmas Ideas

Christmas Date Ideas

The holiday season is the best – scented candles, time off from work, spending time with family you rarely see, and winter activities. My boyfriend is the best at planning date details while I am better at looking at the larger picture plans. We work well in this way, but we’re trying something different this winter. Because my boyfriend will be visiting New York City … Continue reading Christmas Date Ideas
