Apple Charlotte, SANGEAN Music and tips for an EVENING FOR TWO

Advertisement / It doesn't always have to be the weekend to do something good for yourself. Many things can be integrated into a normal working day. So is an evening out for two, which is very important in a relationship, but often seems annoying and unnecessary for the time being. Especially couples with children often neglect this time for two and are at some point just parents.

It is very important to spend time with your partner as a couple. Couples who regularly spend time together are closer, treat each other more affectionately and also feel stronger in their everyday professional lives. It's also good for everyone to escape the daily grind and do something for themselves, even on a chaotic day full of duties.

If you don't have the possibility to go out, you can quickly organize an evening for two at home. It doesn't have to be every day, just one evening a week can work wonders. It doesn't need a lot of hoopla, yet you should prepare it a bit. After all, an evening for two on the sofa and in front of the TV is not what I mean ;-). On the whole, these 3 points are important:

The ambience

Less is indeed more and too many roses on the table or even on the floor, too much kitsch and bric-a-brac can be off-putting and in the long run the preparation of such evenings is just a burden. Nevertheless the ambience should fit. You don't need much, a few candles and a neatly set table are enough.

It is important that there are no things on the table that do not fit the evening. No kids toys, no bills, no work. Nothing that could distract. The light should also contribute to the mood and be relaxing. Small light sources are enough, like small lamps and candles.

The music – Sangean Genuine Mini WR-7 (discount code)

Choice of music is pretty simple. Quietly, slowly and not very noticeable. The music should also fit the mood and run pleasantly in the background. Choose songs you both like and prefer RnB over rock. The music should not be in the foreground, but clearly make the mood.

My husband and I regularly have our evenings. Sometimes we go out, sometimes we stay home. I put the small wireless Sangean radio on the table for our evening a few days ago, providing pleasant music. Advantage of such a device like Sangean WR-7 Genuine Mini is that it can be taken everywhere, which means that I could have planned the evening also outside or on the terrace. Without cable and fully charged, you can listen to music with Sangean Mini up to 36 hours. Since you can connect with Bluetooth, you have the choice of music in your own hands. The sound is strong and the acoustics are clear, you wouldn't even think that when you see how small this radio is.

By the way, for this special evening I would not listen to any radio station, but play my own playlist. On the radio they talk in between and that can be disturbing. For example, I can connect my smartphone via Bluetooth with Sangean Mini and listen to the music that I want.

The food

It does not really matter what you cook. The main thing is that it tastes good to both. Maybe something you don't eat every day or you order something special. Depending on the possibilities and tastes, but it would be important to serve it nicely. Maybe in everyday life you don't always have time and desire to set up the meal perfectly, but for such an evening that would be important. I am always amazed how a simple meal, stylishly decorated, tastes better. Then add a glass of wine and it's like being in a restaurant.

We also had a delicious apple charlotte the other day and I'll post the recipe below in case you have your eye on it ;-). Tastes insanely delicious.

On the whole, that's all you need to take care of to organize a relaxing evening for two: nice ambience, music and food. You do not need more.

If you also decide to integrate the evening for two firmly into your week, then I wish you a lot of fun. One must not forget to be a couple even besides children and job.
