Love :)

Today's blog challenge from Two Peas: what does being in love mean to you? Hmmm....well, for me being in love is about the everyday, not the special occasions. Iain and I will be celebrating our 14th anniversary in September, and over the years I have learned:

  • if you can stick it out, the bad times do make you stronger and therefore make the good times better
  • talk about it!
  • there aren't many things sexier than a hubby doing housework without being asked :)
  • men are not psychic
  • laughter makes the heart grow fonder!
  • try and put things in perspective and look at things from your spouse's point of view
  • get the kids to bed at a reasonable time so that you can hang out together
  • talk about it!
  • always remember that the kids will eventually leave home, and you and your hubby will be together, alone, after they leave!
  • doing little unexpected things can make someone feel extra-special
  • and the last one - talk about it!

Yup, it's all about the communication. Well, that and laughing together - a lot :)

men are not psychic...really? I should've known! JK!
I agree with communication being the most important and crucial part of a relationship. Good post.
