30 Affordable Summer Date Ideas

Who else was up at the butt crack of dawn on Saturday to watch the royal wedding ?! If you’re a hopeless romantic like I am, I bet you just couldn’t resist either – you are not alone sista! With romance in the air and summer on the horizon, what better topic for this week than summer date ideas!!

Now don’t get me wrong, I do love the old fashion dinner and a movie night, but why not spice it up a little bit once in a while? Truth is, you really don’t need to be spending an arm and a leg to have a seriously lovely day with your guy or gal! I know for me personally, it’s all in the thought and I actually appreciate cute & simple dates more than a huge 4 course dinner!
