Happy Valentine’s Day friends! To be honest, I’ve never been a big fan myself. It’s pretty high up there to me on the disappointing holidays list right up there next to New Year’s Eve.
Anywho, since today technically is Valentine’s Day and all, I wanted to talk about an important self-care tip for you and your spouse.
I know this seems kinda obvious, but here it is:
Not that I am an expert. Actually, date nights are something my husband and I are terrible at. Like, we haven’t had a date night since last September! Oy vey!
Because of that fact, a goal we have made for ourselves in 2020 was to plan at least 1 date a month. A date night that doesn’t include running errands or doing stuff for the kids.
This should be a time to reconnect and remember that there was a time before you had kiddos. And while you are at it, a little reminder of why you actually married this person in the first place! (Just in case you forgot.)
FYI, there will be a time when it’s just the two of you again. Will you have anything to talk about?
Why you ask is a date Self-Care?
Because it is an intentional act to nurture and feed the MOST important relationship in your life, that’s why!
Still not convinced?
Look at it this way;
Dating your spouse lets them know they are still a priority to you. I’m going to be completely straight up with ya, the hubs and I have been a little more like roommates then passionate, love sick puppies lately. Jeremy works a TON and taking care of the kids, the casa, and building the blog is exhausting. We pretty much only wanna sleep by the time we get to the bed at night. Just keepin it real, sorry Jermy!
Also, watching their parents making each other a priority models a healthy marriage for your children. As parents, our biggest hope is that we raise healthy, happy humans who make healthy decisions especially when it comes to relationships. You are their models! Do a good job at it!
That’s all for now. If only I was more creative than dinner and a movie! Lol
What is your favorite thing to do for date night?
Talk to you soon! Be Bold!
