Dating my husband...



Originally uploaded by Edward Barnieh
It's been 18 months since I said "I do" and wow! what a whirlwind it's been. In those months we've relocated, had a baby and settled down into FOREVER. I now realize that it is SOO easy to fall into a rut when it comes to my relationship with hubby; after all we are so busy with our careers, being parents and just the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

So what's my solution?

DATING MY HUSBAND!

Yes ladies, From time to time, I "date" my husband...let me explain.

I remembered when I was dating/courting/moving purposefully towards marriage or whatever you want to call it., there was a certain way I acted.

Ladies, you know...

We take extra care in our appearances, we are a bit more shy, subdued in our actions, we smiled and spoke more with our eyes. We are satisfied with the simple act of holding his hand. We love spending hours on the phone/texting and miss him when he is not around. When he finally earns the right to come over to our place, we cook the most extravagant meals for him.


I think if we went back into our "dating" frame of mind; doing the same things we did to "catch" our partners, not only would it spice things up but it would also refresh any relationship be it 18 months or 18 yrs.
