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!

Form an acrostic (fancy word for taking each letter of someone’s name and using it to form a word about them) with your spouse or significant other’s name. If you’re single, do one for your own name or someone you love.  

I’ll get us started …

S – Smart

T – Thoughtful

E – Encouraging

V – Virtuous

E – Engaging

Okay, it’s your turn! Ps. Special thanks to Ricinda Perry for giving me this great Talking Tuesday idea!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. What are some of your plans? Anyone have some cute ideas of how we can show our spouse or significant other our love?

I’ll get us started …

To be honest, Valentine’s Day has been on my radar, but I haven’t given it a ton of thought because of how busy things have been. That’s not a very good excuse, but I’ve really got to sit down and put some thought into what I’m going to do for my hubs. Usually we go out to dinner and/or make a special dinner at home, exchange some small gifts and cards, and just enjoy one another’s company. I typically make some kind of yummy dessert because I love baking. You all might want to try this recipe if you’re looking for something to bake this year.

The bottom line, I need to get on the ball this year. Feel free to share your suggestions, as I clearly need any help I can get … haha J

Okay, it’s your turn!

Do you have any tricks to “treating” your spouse or significant other? Does your spouse or significant other have any tricks to treating you?

I’ll get us started …

To be very honest with you, I feel like my husband, Steve, is the one with all of the tricks up his sleeve to treat me! He is super creative and comes up with some great ideas of things to make me feel loved, appreciated, and special. Some of his tricks include foot massages with lotion at the end of a long day for me, leaving me postcards from places we’ve been to with a love note on them to find when I get up in the morning, bringing home unexpected flowers, and planning fun date nights. He always thinks outside of the box and always makes me feel like he puts thought into keeping things fresh, fun, and romantic.

For me, I love to leave post-it notes with words of affirmation in random places he will find like inside his wallet, on his shoe, on the front door, or in his car. When he gets home from work each night, I try to always drop everything and run to greet him with a big hug and kiss. Most nights I make sure that I have dinner made when he walks through the door. A lot of the things I do are rather simple and understated, but I believe they make a big difference in maintaining our marriage.

Okay, it’s your turn!

What are you most thankful for about your spouse or significant other?

I’ll get us started …

One of the things I am most thankful for about my husband is that he is a man of integrity. He holds himself to the standards that God has put in place for him though His Word. I never wonder what he is up to, what he’s looking at, or who he’s talking to. While I am cautious to uphold our agreed upon boundaries and put safeguards in place, I am never concerned with his judgment because I know that he is a man of integrity that loves and fears the Lord as well as me.

This is something that I value so much and have come to discover its rarity. Sadly, so many men and women have been fooled into thinking that they can get a little loose around the turns and be just fine. That may be true for a season, but tell me how many times can you drive around a sharp curve going 100 miles per hour before you eventually get seriously hurt? Why take that chance? It’s not about what you can get away with; it’s about living the best life possible.

I love that I don’t have to compromise on what I know God’s Word tells me nor do I have to convince my husband of that. His life of integrity and sound judgment are something I absolutely treasure and appreciate with all of my heart.

Okay, it’s your turn!
