You Deserve a Date Night!

We’re all busy. Between sports practices, summer camps, work, and other family commitments, sometimes I feel like I only see my husband for a few minutes a night. I can’t remember the last time he and I had a true date night. I’m not talking Redbox and take out either. I’m talking date night out on the town – and there’s no better place than downtown Kalamazoo.

Research has shown over and over again alone couple time is important to a happy, healthy marriage. So why don’t we do it more often? Time is certainly a factor, but so is money and thinking of somewhere fun to go. We may not be able to find you a babysitter, but we are here to help with the rest.
