I have now been in a serious relationship for three years, I feel like I have the best connection with him! I have never had a relationship this easy, happy, worth everything. So I thought I’d list a few things that I think helps my relationship, this may or may not apply to your own relationship.

  1. Communication: Talk about everything, even if your scared to tell him whats bothering you! Its better to let him know and get it off your chest and try to work it out then hold it in and nothing change.
  2. Trust: Don’t hover over him, he wants some space just like you do.
  3. Date Nights: Even a little time out to eat or a home cooked meal where you are sitting together at the table and can just talk and relax is a great time to just be with each other. There are so many different dates you can go on, whether at home or out and about. They don’t have to break your wallet either.
  4. Laughing: Every relationship needs some laughter, make a joke, or do something silly to make them laugh and enjoy the connection they have with you.
  5. The Simple Rule: If you know he doesn’t remember where he puts his phone or keys, just keep an eye out for them and when he asks you can tell him. Makes him feel like you care. Do the little things that will help him through the day where its a little back rub, or grabbing him a beer, all men want is to be pampered as much as you do. I believe it goes both ways, he should do the same for you.
  6. Little Notes: Either send him a text just saying you miss his smile or leave him notes for when he comes home from work.
  7. Sitting next to him and not talking but just a hand on his or a little bump of the arms to say hey I love you. Even time alone from each other at times helps.

Well those are the ones I can think of right now, I may add more later on in another post. Would love to hear some of your relationship advice too! Good Luck and get a date night planned!!

Christmas is quickly approaching us. Ten days away and counting. Some people have their shopping done, some have a few things left to get and others haven’t walked into a store for a gift, Oh and lets not forget the ones that are not able to get gifts this year. Hard situation but some times it’s the case. Now days money becomes tight because it goes to bills and gas and gifts during the holidays are not a necessity.

This year is hard for my family and I but as long as we have family the holidays can still be as bright without gifts as it can be with. Gifts don’t have to be material things. We have let holidays become commercialized. Sad that as families we thing that we have to give gifts to have a good time. Come on now…. that is not the case.

Break out a deck of cards and play go fish or BS or spoons. Learn a new card game for the holidays. Break out some of those old board games that are collecting dust and gather the family to enjoy some fun. Have a snowball fight if it’s a snowing. Decorate the house and enjoy singing Christmas music to get into the mood of family fun.

Lets put our glasses up and cheers to having a good Christmas and other holidays with our families with or without money! Get some laughs going this year, pull a friendly prank on someone, share or give something away to make someone happy.

Let me know how you’re preparing for the holidays or what stresses your having because it’s the holidays!
