Appreciate the Little Things

Appreciate the little things. My husband and I never let an opportunity pass to tell each other that we appreciate each other. You know the song by the police that says "every little thing she does is magic...." Well that is the way you should treat your spouse. Every little thing he or she does is magic and you let him or her know you appreciate every little thing. Fixed breakfast. Thank you. Cleared the table. Thank you. Washed the dishes. Thank you. Found the misplaced BlackBerry. Thank you. Changed the radio station upon request. Thank you. Held open the door. Thank you. Did the grocery shopping. Thank you. You get the idea. Be grateful. It will strengthen your bond.

Get Away If Possible

These are difficult times for many of us, economically speaking. But if at all possible, I highly recommend a change of scenery to relight the flame of your passion. Rueben and I just did that and it did wonders for our relationship. All we did was eat, drink, sleep, have sex, read, and sunbathe (In Punta Cana). We also went for two hour long massages and a one hour long ride on the beach. I have dreamt of riding on the beach for YEARS. So it was wonderful to have a dream come true with and because of my husband. I am so grateful to him for that and will never forget it. If Punta Cana is out of the question, do your own version. You might consider a staycation instead of a vacation. Act like a tourist in your own town. Play hookie and have an afternoon delight. Find a way to be more intimate with your partner. You will both love it. I know we did.
