Warning: Hot Summer Nights Ahead—at Least They Could Be!

25 06 2009

If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance. ~~Bern Williams

As children, we lived for summer. No school. No homework. No worries. Two-plus months of pure, unadulterated fun. Then, we entered adulthood. With every wading step through the Workplace Swamp, our zest for summer dwindled and became a drain on our already depleted energy reserves. Isn’t it time we take back the summer season for ourselves–and for that special someone in our lives?  

Summer’s the perfect time to take advantage of the season’s long days and warm nights. They’re the perfect time for rekindling a relationship that got a little cold over the long winter months or connecting with that person you’ve had your eyes on for quite some time. And here’s a few activities to get you started:

  1.   Walk along the beach or on a hiking trail and enjoy the sunset.
  2.   Rent a convertible and go on a scenic drive.
  3.   Go on a moonlight picnic (but don’t forget the bug spray!).
  4.   Share an ice cream sundae in bed–or anywhere else you can eat it naked.
  5.   Dance under the stars to your partner’s favorite songs.
  6.   Go on a naked campout!
  7.   Plant a tree or rose bush together to serve as a visual reminder of the love you share.
  8.   Rent a movie, turn down the lights, and then don’t watch the movie!
  9.   Send your special someone an evite/invite for a midnight rendezvous.
  10.   Go for a boat ride.
  11.   Buy a smoothie maker and make daiquiris.
  12.   During a sudden summer rainshower, drag that special someone outside and dance in the rain—or just turn on the sprinklers!
  13.   Take your partner shopping and model “night clothes” for them.
  14.   Making a kissing date—just sit on the patio or some place secluded and neck like you were sixteen!
  15.   Ready your partner a sexy bedtime story.
  16.   Cook a romantic dinner…together.
  17.   Cut up a bowl of summer fruit, add a dollop or two of whipped cream, and then feed each other in bed.
  18.   Pick flowers together.
  19.   Write “sex horoscopes” for each other and then make them come true!
  20.   Leave/send your partner a sexy I.O.U.

 To go along with my post, I’m adding a “Love Coupons” booklet to our Summer Fun Contest. Enjoy!

I’m going to do #2, #8, and #15. Er…maybe that’s too much information? Love this and love your blog. Glad to have found you.

It’s even more fun when you can try and get the list to start cascading. 9 leads to 5 which unexpectedly ends up becoming a quasi version of 12 (oops!) which becomes a quasi version of 14 when you finally run for cover…and well, you get the steamy picture! 🙂

I so love the ideas. I am going to make it a point to try to do all of them! Thanks for posting it!

16 is my personal favorite. It can open the door to so many of the others–and then some!

Great list; maybe I’ll look into working my way through all of them (or not)

26 06 2009

Oh, come on, Nancy…you can make it through them all. You know you secretly want to, lol. 🙂 I can just picture the look on your partner’s face when you say y’all are going on a campout but not to bring any clothes along!

What a great list of suggestions on how to enjoy summer. While it isn’t my favorite season (winter holds that honor), I do love summer. My favorite way of enjoying it is taking a drive into the mountains (only 20 minutes away) and just basking in their beauty.

I have to admit, summer isn’t my favorite season either…mine’s fall. I love the changing of the leaves! And, oh, autumn’s just beautfil here in Arkansas. The Ozark Mountains are just breathtaking…

Lots of great ideas. I have a beach within walking distance from where I live and my husband and I take walks there. It’s so nice on a warm night with the breeze coming off the water. We also like to go bike riding around the neighborhood.
