What is one of your favorite physical features of your spouse or significant other? Why?

I’ll get us started …

As most of you will feel too (hopefully), there are so many things I love about my husband! I think he is the most handsome man ever, so it’s tough to pick just one favorite physical feature of his. That being said, I would have to say his eyes. He has beautiful blue eyes, but my favorite thing about them is how tender and gentle they are. When I look into his eyes, I just feel at ease and comforted. Like I’ve arrived home. It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul, and my husband definitely has a comforting, tender soul that is gentle and kind. Those beautiful blue eyes are definitely one of my favorite physical features of his!

Okay, it’s your turn!

What are your favorite flowers, and why? Husbands, do you know what your wife’s favorite flowers are? Wives, does your husband know what your favorite flowers are?

I’ll get us started …

It’s tough to go wrong on flowers because they are all just so beautiful! I love how they just naturally make every day feel bright and cheery when they are around. That’s why I try to keep a vase of them in our place whenever I can. My absolute favorite flower though is a purple tulip. There’s something about their simplicity that I just love. Then as they open up, you see that they are hiding even more beauty inside those delicate pedals. There’s just something about them in my favorite shade that overwhelms my senses with their elegant beauty. And yes, my husband knows they are my favorite flower, although it took him a few years of reminding before he got it. Now I’m fairly certain it’s seared into his mind J

Okay, it’s your turn!

What are some of the ways you plan on making your marriage or relationship better this year?

I’ll get us started …

You can never care too much about your marriage, and you certainly can never do too much to make it better. That’s both challenging and exciting! For me this year, I want to plan small outings and date nights more for my husband and I. Typically he takes point on all of that, and while I love and appreciate that he does, I too want to surprise him with thoughtful, fun things to do together. Also, I want to be more intentional about doing acts of service for him. Maybe it’s a shoulder massage or taking care of the trash so he doesn’t have to. The possibilities are endless, so I just need to think about it and choose some to do for him on a regular basis. There are times I know that my marriage slips to the back burner, and I want to make sure I’m constantly bringing it to the front burner so that I’m doing my part to make it the best it can be!

Okay, it’s your turn!

What are your favorite Christmas traditions?

I’ll get us started …

It’s always tough just picking one because this time of year is rich with traditions and memories attached to those traditions. Plus there’s the fact that there are traditions from growing up with each of our families as well as my husband’s and my own traditions. I think I’ll choose a tradition Steve and I have created together.

Since we are the ones traveling each year to see our families, we never get to be at our home for Christmas. Because we’re usually in the air or on the road, we decided not to tote our Christmas gifts for each other along for the ride. Instead, we started doing our own Christmas night before we take off each year. We make dinner, sip on cups of hot cider and cocoa, get our Christmas jammies on, and open up gifts side by side. It’s a sweet little night that we look forward to each year. Hopefully at some point we’ll get to enjoy Christmas in our own home, but for now, we enjoy this pre-Christmas night together.

Okay, it’s your turn!

Form an acrostic of things you appreciate about your spouse, family, and/or life with the word “THANKFUL”? Feel free to explain your word choices.

I’ll get us started …

T – Trustworthy: How thankful I am that I can trust my husband enough to be vulnerable with dreams, fears, thoughts, ideas, and emotions that I otherwise wouldn’t share with someone.

H – Health: What a blessing it is to have our health. So many are fighting for their lives out there, and it’s easy to take our health for granted.

A – Awesome: I have an awesome family that I can share with, talk to, laugh with, cry with, and count on to pray, support, and encourage me no matter what.

N – Noble: This is a word that describes my husband well. I am so thankful for the godly man that he is!

K – Kindhearted: I feel like this describes my husband and my family so well! I honestly have never met a kinder, more thoughtful, generous, and loving bunch than my loved ones, and I so admire that about them!

F – Fun: My husband, Steve, and I have the best time together! Whether it’s grocery shopping, watching a movie, traveling, and everything in between, we have a blast together, and I love that!

U – Understanding: I appreciate that I can go to my husband, family, and friends and find understanding there. There’s something about knowing they are listening and care that makes the burdens of life that much lighter.

L – Love: To love and be loved is simply one of the greatest joys of life.

Okay, it’s your turn!

What are your favorite ways to say “thank you” to your spouse or significant other?

I’ll get us started …

One of my hubs’ primary love languages is words of affirmation, so this is something I’m always trying to make sure I keep in mind. When you stop to think about it, there are a lot of ways to let someone know you appreciate them, but one of my favorite ways is with a sweet love note. I will pick up some cheap cards at the store so I have a stash, and from time to time I will just write my husband a note to let him know how much I love and appreciate him. Once it’s all written out, I will leave it somewhere I know he will find it like on his pillow, in his car, by the bathroom mirror, etc. It’s a simple gesture that I know my husband appreciates.

Okay, it’s your turn!
