I won’t deny it, marriage is hard. My husband is awesome but other times I want to run screaming for the hills… which might be an understatement. I think that in relationships – of any kind – it is easy to forget that the other party is a person, with feelings and thoughts all their own – just as valid as our own. With that in mind, I want to offer a few tips that I have learned in my years, all thirty of them.
I wouldn’t typically throw a product mention into a post like this but I happened to be sent a date night idea booklet from a company called Datevitation and I sort of love the concept. One of the hardest things about connecting with my husband is simply taking the time to connect. We use to do date nights every other week but they were always the same and predictable. It was nice to spend time together but there was no excitement. When this company emailed me I was a little skeptical – after all, I’m a crafty girl and can whip up some fun graphics – but then I looked through their site and found myself excited about making my own booklet. They have fun ideas (even for nights in!) and you can enter your own messages with each one – I won’t share mine with you here but let’s say that I was a bit cheeky and had a lot of fun with it and I am pretty darn excited to give it to my husband for Valentine’s Day.
I’m sure there is so much more to be said, but these are just a few things that I find important in my relationships. What tips do you think are important in helping to foster good relationships with partners, family or friends?
