The temperatures are slowly but surely warming up, and signs up spring are starting to pop up. I couldn’t be more excited! Feels like this winter went on forever, and I can’t wait to enjoy warm weather and sunny days. Of course eventually I’ll be complaining that it’s too hot, but for now, I’m reallllly excited about it.

I’m planning on soaking up as much time outdoors as possible, and doing all the spring and summer activities! I thought I’d share some date ideas if you’re also planning on embracing the warm weather. These can totally be friend dates too! Or even just dates with yourself ?
