One of my favorite things, is to play golf with my husband. We have a long history of playing golf together, and in fact, I got him started playing the game in college. It is a great way to spend some one on one time together, without cell phones and computers. And you really have to focus on each other. We always compliment each other's shots and commiserate about the tough putts. It also requires patience and a sense of humor - a good test for a couple.
It is a wonderful activity for a couples trip and golf courses have some of the most beautiful scenery. We have been on golfing trips to Maui, Scottsdale, Palm Springs, northern Michigan and Florida. We have golfed together as a young couple and even made time to golf when we had young children. It is an activity that will take us into retirement. When you are empty nesters, you have more time as a couple and is important to focus on activities you enjoy together.
If your husband spends a lot of time golfing, learn to play yourself and don't be a "golf widow" any longer. Anyone can go to the driving range and is an inexpensive, fun way to learn and do something your husband enjoys.
Now that the snow has melted, and the grass will begin to turn green again, our thoughts turn to another golf season and spending time together in the beautiful outdoors.
Have a happy Easter weekend!
