Do you have any rituals in your relationship? I’m not talking about satanic rituals or killing sheep or anything like that although if that’s your vibe then that’s cool and I’m not judging. I’m talking about doing something together in an intentional and conscious way in order to help you deal with something or work through something? I wouldn’t say we have rituals in our relationship but we have done a ‘ritual’ twice. The first time to help us deal with something that was going on in our lives and the second being just the other night for a similar reason. … [Read More]
For those of you who have got to know me a bit through following my blog, you’ll know that while I think spending quality time together is so important, I also believe very strongly in giving to yourself and doing the necessary self work in order to have a loving and fulfilling relationship. One’s relationship with oneself should be vital if you are wanting to look after the relationship with each other. This guest post from Abigail K … [Read More]
This past weekend my husband and I had a party at home. There was no occasion for it. It was just a ‘let’s have a party for the sake of it’ occasion and I have to say I think we’re on to something! But let me start at the beginning…
So every year, as my birthday starts approaching, I start saying ‘maybe I should have a party?’ I think about it, I talk about but I never do anything about it. … [Read More]
I don’t know about you but when you have been together for as long as my husband and I have ( almost 14 years) you start running out of ideas of what to get for each other when it comes to birthdays and all those special occasions.
If you have been following my blog or you know me personally, you might have realised now that for me, small gestures have big impact…. [Read More]
How romantic is you bedroom? Does it inspire you to feel calm, romantic, seductive?
When we did a second renovation in our home, I was determined to have a ‘sanctuary’ of a bedroom. That one room in the house where I could step into it and feel calm, romantic and luxurious. I wanted our room to be OURS!… [Read More]
So, it’s that time of year to buy presents if you haven’t already done so. Is it just us that are feeling like life is EXPENSIVE! It feels like as soon as money comes in, it just goes straight out. Besides the cost factor of buying presents, for me personally, some of my best presents have been the ones that have had the most thought involved and haven’t cost very much. … [Read More]
Can we feel really upset about someone dying if we didn’t really know them? A friend of my husband’s died last week. My husband only knew him for about 5 months but in that time, they saw each other every day as they worked in the same office space and were working on a project together, had been riding together and were becoming friends. … [Read More]
How many times have you said to each other, ‘We really should do Date Nights more often,‘ but then it never quite happens?
This was us not too long ago. In fact, it was something we had been wanting to do in our relationship for a very long time. We had spoken many times about committing to Date Nights once a week but just never quite managed it…until now :)… [Read More]
Before we had kids, being affectionate with each other was something that happened so naturally. Remember being that irritating new couple who couldn’t keep your hands off each other? We were one of them as well. In the beginning, you really just can’t get enough of each other and so there is a lot of touching and affection…. [Read More]
One of the biggest reasons I think we don’t do Date Nights often enough is that we just can’t think of what to do when we want to do it. It’s like the supper dilemma. For those of you out there who make supper day in and day out, you can understand that the question of ‘what’s for supper?’ is enough to drive you completely insane!… [Read More]
One of the things I feel we don’t do enough of in life is appreciate what we have. Whether it’s material things or even, and especially, the people in our lives, we are often wanting something more, better, bigger and forget to be thankful and appreciative for what we have…. [Read More]
