With the New Year, Zach and I have been trying to save more money, but still be able to have fun and have special time with each other! If you read 34 Weekly Date Ideas, You know I think dating even after you're married is super important! Going on dates with Zach is something I look forward to every single week (This week we tried fencing and we loved it!!!)
