Meet Ms. Jackson. This fancy little tie dye thing is my new bestie! Jared bought us a kayak! I’m super excited to have a new hobby that the two of us can explore and have fun with together. We basically spent the entire weekend on the river and it was so much fun! We’re officially hooked!
When the kayak first came up I was not on board with it. I immediately thought, we don’t have time to kayak! That thing will just sit there! BUT now that we basically spent the entire weekend on the kayak I’m so happy Jared bought it! When you get older I think it’s so easy for us to get set in our ways. We have our hobbies and things that are important to us but it’s so much fun finding new hobbies and things to do as a couple. It’s important for us to not just do what I want to do or what he wants to do. It’s important for us to find things we both love and are interested in to do together! I’m sure Jared had no idea how great this little kayak would be for our relationship when he bought it!
When I actually sat down to think about the things we do together I realized we don’t really have any hobbies together, which is crazy! We both enjoy traveling and learning about new places, we both love trying out new restaurants and watching movies and shows just like everyone else does, but we didn’t have that “thing”. I do partially blame that on the fact that we only see each other about 5 days a month but this is definitely a fun activity to look forward to for when we do have days together!
Having something you both love is great because it gives you both an incentive to just go. Sometimes all you need is a little quality time with the one you love and this is the perfect excuse to get out of the house and have a little fun. We both work a lot and have a hard time “getting away” it seems. But I seriously love that we now have an excuse to take an afternoon off and go on an adventure together. (But first we take blog pics! ha!)
