gotta romance that man!

So I decided to romance the crap outta my husband for the month of February. Sounds fun, no? :) It is, after all, the month that houses Valentine's Day, my second favorite holiday of the year- first being Christmas, third is the 4th of July, and 4th is Fall Day!

I was thinking about what I wanted to do that was special for Jerr this V-day and then I realized that he is tremendously stressed in life right now. There is a ton on his plate at work because he is an overachiever who needs to do everything well, he is taking college classes full time and maintaining a 4.0 GPA, and on top of that takes time to love on two boys and a wife in an admirable way. So I decided that I could thank him by loving on him in a purposeful way every day.

I want to do a little something extra each day. Sometimes I see this being a little something that means "I was thinking about you" but other times-most times- it will be something free. Like a back massage without explanation. You can appreciate the creativity this will necessitate because I just had a baby and am still "on hold" from certain activities in life...like working out and *cough* other things, for two more weeks.

And I want to do this extra lovin' without announcing it to him because that will just make him want to do it for me, too. He's a good guy. And the idea is not to add yet another thing to his plate but to help make the things that are on his plate more doable and less stressful.

So I'm going to put this into action and you're welcome to join! If you do, let me know so I can check in and steal your ideas. Wait, no..I mean BE INSPIRED BY YOU. ;)

  1. Thanks for the idea Lauren--I'm doing it too, but can't blog about it until the end of the month because DH reads my blog! But today I walked our dog in the morning and at night (in 16 degree weather in snow!) so my hubby wouldn't have to. :) I have more ideas and I can't wait to think of more!
