In my past dating life, I didn’t do a cartwheel when someone asked to go on an outdoor adventure. I wasn’t a huge nature lover. Heck, I dropped out of Brownies before I crossed the promotion bridge to Girl Scouts. When a date involved a hike or a climb, I instantly pictured my hair sweating out, my makeup melting and my Hay fever flaring up. But this time around, I bought some chic scarves, mineral makeup and allergy pills. While living overseas, I became one with Mother Nature. I zip-lined through treetops, jumped off cliffs into raging waters and rode an elephant across a river. The memories lasted longer than a dinner or a movie.

Pick the Right One
I love fresh fruit, especially when it's picked straight from the source. Recently, I went to a farm that took visitors on a hay ride to the strawberry fields. After picking the best berries, I explored the farm, interacted with animals and took home lots of sweet treats from the market. For date two, you can make a cobbler together.
