This month, your challenge is to share how you and your husband make each and every day of your marriage special. What are your daily relationship rituals? How do you nurture the “us” factor? Tell us the big or little things that make your marriage sing like a fine-tuned violin. Click the button above to join us for Marriage Monday.
February 1st begins what I like to think of as "our month." We started dating in February 1998 and have many special days in this month. Add Valentine's Day (and my birthday!) to the month and we have a full month of specialness. :)
I firmly believe that if we wait until February 14 to go all out to show our love to our spouses, our marriage won't be strong. But what do we do to keep the love strong all year round? For me it seems to be all the little things we do that mean the most. I don't expect my husband to buy me roses or gifts. Those things are nice and I love surprises; however, it is the little stuff we do daily that makes me happy and makes me feel so cherished and loved by my man.
We have a little stuffed red heart we hide for the other to find. It's always a great surprise to find it. We have code words for each other that are special to us. We go on dates. We both look forward to each week since Caleb has been in school is our lunch dates on Thursday's. We spend time together talking and laughing. We miss each other when we are apart. We talk about and remember our early dating days.
It's fun to have a special day to celebrate love on February 14, but I'm all for doing little things to show love every day and not just wait for a special occasion.
