Fishing is fun, whether you actually catch fish or not.It’s an adventure, getting the right bait for the right fish, getting fishing poles, setting everything up, heading to the river or lake, sitting on the bank or getting in the boat – it’s always a good time.Reconnecting while getting everything prepared, and then just sitting and waiting is a great way to bring the world to a sort of standstill, where all that matters is your immediate surroundings.

When the time comes to spend a moment together alone without baby, it’s important to do whatever both of you like to reconnect and feel relaxed.Every couple has different preferences – some like dinner and a movie, some like bungee jumping.Some like both in the same day!So just gauge how both of you feel, and work together to find what will bring you most pleasure.
