Thanks to Bota Box wines for sponsoring an evening away for my husband and I. We really enjoyed it!
Having an amazing date night close to home is easy, affordable and necessary for a happy marriage and even better parenting. Taking a time out as a couple doesn’t have to be hard with a little creativity, food, and wine. Here’s a great date night idea and how we enjoyed our time away recently.
With 3 active kids, life can get so busy. From baseball tournaments to dance performances, it seems we’re all going in different directions most days. While we don’t overbook our schedules, just normal everyday life is crazy. So crazy that it’s hard for my husband and I to find time for ourselves – time to get away and enjoy each other’s company.
Spending downtime together is important for our marriage and for our kids. So, instead of forgoing time away when life is hectic, we find time to get away for a few hours for a date night close to home.
This past weekend, we got a sitter for the kids and headed to the lake to enjoy the sunset, a glass of good wine, and some yummy snacks. Thankfully, we have an amazing friend that has an amazing view of the lake and she generously allowed us to hang out on her dock for the evening. Heaven.
Only 10 minutes from our house, but it feels like a whole other world. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing are just a few ways to describe our evening. Sitting, enjoying good conversations with my husband – can’t beat it.
And don’t forget the wine. OH – the wine was to die for! I am in love with Bota Box Wines. Not only are they easy to take with us (no glass bottles to worry about breaking), they are delicious!
Made with 100% recyclable packaging, Bota Box offers a wide variety of premium wine in BPA-BPS free wine bags. Premium wine, anytime, anywhere and is super convenient for traveling.
PLUS, Bota Box has 85% less landfill waste than traditional glass packaging and is created with 100% post-consumer fiber and printed with VOC-free inks on Kraft unbleached recycled paper.
So, besides being convenient for traveling – you are doing something good for the environment by drinking Bota Box Wine!
While I’d love a three-month summer vacation, there’s nothing better than escaping the crazy day to day schedules with a spontaneous day on the lake, in the backyard around the fire pit or even a night on the front porch with some good music and company.
Bota Box wines compact packaging is perfectly mobile, and with no glass bottle or corkscrew to fuss with, it’s the perfect accessory for any summer adventure.
I LOVE the RedVolution wine. It is so good. With rich aromas of black cherry, cocoa and a hint of spice – extending into lush flavors of dark fruit, cherry and toasty oak, this smooth, full-bodied wine culminates into a juicy, well-balanced finish.
It goes well with anything you’re eating – especially a tray full of meats, cheeses, nuts and olives. I will take that over a big meal any day.
And it’s perfect for a date night on the lake. Just throw all of your food into a basket, grab a blanket, and your favorite Bota Box Brick and you have the make up of a very good evening.
Bota Box comes in different sizes for whatever your need is – there’s the mini box that has 3 glasses of wine in it and the 3 liter box which has 4 bottles of wine in it.
There’s also really great selection of wines available –
Cabernet • Chardonnay • Pinot Grigio • RedVolution • Pinot Noir • Sauvignon Blanc • NightHawk Black Red Blend • Malbec • Dry Rosé • Mini Sauvignon Blanc
Taking some times to kick back and reconnect is so important in a marriage. And after a night like this, I can’t wait to do it again and take Bota Box wine along, too!
Check out Bota Box wine on their website to see where to pick up your own Bota Brick box! I think you’ll love it as much as we do!
Thanks, again, to Bota Box wines for sponsoring an evening away for my husband and I.
