Significant Places Date- With a Big Surprise for Jacob at the End

Time is an interesting concept, one I can never wrap my brain around. The more of it we've had, the less we seem to have. Life experiences and expectations seem to speed up time and we only have nostalgia to remind us of the past. I can't believe we've been married four years, I feel like we just went on our first date a few months ago.

I decided a fun, romantic, free date was in order around Valentine's Day as a fun idea to share for a creative date on Valentine's Day. Basking in sweet nostalgia and taking your significant other to all the significant places in your relationship creates for a sea of happy memories and a celebration of your relationship. Since we met, dated, got engaged, and married all in the Phoenix metro I knew this was a totally plausible date that we could do in one day. I had a grand plan to do this sometime, preferably around Valentine's Day, but when I found out I was pregnant and needed an original, creative way to tell my husband that a baby was coming after years of failed fertility treatments, I knew it was the perfect date to fit in the big surprise!

We drove ALL OVER the Phoenix metro for this date, but it's a sweet memory I'll never forget!

I made the decision this would be more fun to capture via video than camera, and of course the camera battery died, the GoPro battery died, and we were left to my iPhone only. I'm still pretty pleased with the result and all's well that ends well!

Feel free to enjoy the clips below to learn more about our meeting, dating, engagement, and to watch the big surprise at the end! I know there's a lot to watch, but the first and the last movies are musts! The first will take you through the set up of the date with an explanation of what we're doing, and the last is how I told Jacob about baby Whiting. Any you grab in between, well, good for you to learn more about us and our significant places!



























After I had thrown him off enough, I took him to a new place to create a great memory...

  5. Dude, Camille. These videos are freaking me out! They outline 'The Chris & Nan' story almost exactly. We pretty much did the same things and had the same conversations. Seriously, so similar. I'll have to tell you all about it one day.
