1. Wine + Chit Chat
...Uninterrupted chit chat and without electronics, that is! Pro tip: leave the room you are typically in - like for us, we're usually lounging in our family room in front of the TV (me working on my laptop, and my husband surfing Twitter on his iPad) - and head to a different space (like for us, our kitchen seating area). Just switching up your environment can make it feel like you're somewhere else!
My husband is more of a beer and whisky drinker, but we can definitely agree on a good bottle of red wine. This The Seeker bottle of a Malbec was delicious. Super smooth with a hint of spices. You can read about each of their wines (including what to pair them with if you are enjoying with a meal or snack) on their site.
2. Lunch Time Picnic
Either during the weekend when the kids are napping/having quiet time, or during the week while the kids are at school/daycare/parents day out - taking a break from work. Everyone has to eat, right? My husband and I have met for lunch a few times, and it feels so guilt-free.
I think another fun idea would be to turn that daytime lunch into a picnic - packing your own lunch and drink (saves money, too) and finding a shaded grassy spot to relax. If the day of the week is right (or your afternoon isn't too busy...), grab a bottle of wine to enjoy the moment further. I toggle back and forth between red and white wine - but when I'm outside, and especially if it's still warm, I tend to go for white or rosé. The Seeker offers many varieties of wines - including a rosé and Sauvignon Blanc (my personal fav).
