After pinning Portugal-related things and researching its culture for the last couple of years, I spontaneously booked a flight for two to Lisbon one afternoon.

Lately we've both been traveling quite a bit, sometimes with conflicting schedules. Being at home and coming up with quick, in-the-moment "date night" ideas has become our thing! Here are some ways we've been spending quality time together, while being relaxed, stress-free and comfortable.
