He plays golf, she rides horses. He loves all things sports and she would rather curl up with a good book or go for a run. This is the lay of the land at our house and Keith and I are constantly looking for things that we can do together.Of course, we love Mardi Gras and do that together, but that involves other people. So what do you do when you want to keep things fresh one on one? Why not celebrate International Picnic Day Wednesday, June 18th? Doesn’t it sound like heaven to spend some time with your loved one in a nice shady place without your cell phone and assundry gadgets so you can truly concentrate on each other? I think it does! That’s why I’ve put together a list of places right here in Shreveport/Bossier City for you to go explore together. Now, all you need to do is grab a blanket and some bug spray and pack a basket with some nice refreshing cold beverages!
