Keeping Things Fresh
I was just talking to my friends at lunch the other day about how they keep their marriages fresh and I was laughing so hard at some of the suggestions. (One friend swears by the book 50 Shades of Grey–ha!) It’s easy to get into an easy routine but here are three simple things that have worked for us.
1. Surprises. It’s sort of a small gesture but when I’m grocery shopping or running errands I pick up a treat just for him. Just something small to show I was thinking about him.
2. Weekly Date Nights. Paul and I work in the same studio space and we are together a lot but when you go out on a date you talk differently and act differently. Its a pain to spend the money and find a sitter but its so worth it. We have a regular sitter once a week and we take turns planning the date.
3. Pretty Underwear. I love shopping for pretty underwear (I went crazy when I lived in France, they had beautiful underwear everywhere.) In the US I’ve found really nice things at Anthropologie (their sales are great.) I’ve even splurged on some of the nice stuff before. It totally works.
