Have you picked up the laundry ??
Do you need me to pick up the children after school??
We are out of vegetables, can you pick some on the way home from work??
Does this sound very familiar– this style of conversation is common between us aimed at getting things done??
It is good as it gets, still I believe our communication has so much potential to go beyond administration and get to the heart of my spouse in this busy life....
My husband, Gajju and I, are married for more than 15 years now, we are best friends till date. Despite this, we have to intentionally keep our relationship and marriage on the front burner of life. as partners we commit ourselves to work and grow together by investing in our relationship for the betterment as we both enjoy the spark of love, compassion and intimacy… Some days my husband and I take the pleasure to just lean back on the pillow without really getting connected—besides talking about kids, money, house, and work, We’ve gotten no deeper than asking how each others days were….
And now we hope to spend time for heart to heart talks with each other where we can share freely, and grow trust and love for one another.. We needed a ‘We time” So my hubby planned an amazing fantasy date this valentines day.. I was so excited as I needed a break from my daily routine. as we share the same goal in giving time to each other and it is important to both of us. But I confess, it’s not always an easy thing to do. And this isn’t just our isolated problem. It’s common in most marriages—regardless of age.
These days life is so busy and we hardly have time to stop and say I LOVE YOU to each other…but Gajju made sure we kept our love alive each year by planning a dinner, just the two of us….laughing and giggling, about the things we did the whole year 🙂
We start from home, leaving kids with my mother ..We chilled at IBIS Chennai located in OMR … though its far from my place, we thoroughly enjoyed the long drive chit chatting like nothing else mattered now. we twinned with the gifts I bought for us this valentine’s day, two lovely red tops, #couplegoals *giggles*. It was painted red everywhere and the restaurant had a lovely theme for valentine’s day. They had decorated with red roses, heart balloons and most dishes were heart shaped. the environment was flooded and we were totally in love with it. Genuinely I had enjoyed the fantasy date arranged by my hubby, I just love him to the moon and back <3
This date was an absolute hit with us. By the time I was thinking it was a great way to wind up the yummy date night, there was a huge surprise waiting for me. My hubby gave me a big surprise and proposed me saying Dear GHUN u r my only Love ,you are a shining star though the world doesn’t know your name. You have no fancy title like Baroness or Dame. Ghun, you really are a star, my LOVE mentor and friend. A Nobel Prize for lovehood is what I’d recommend. And if I won the lottery I’d share my win with you I’d take you on a spending spree each day the whole year through! You may not be famous, as your face is known to few. But Dearest love I think you are wonderful and I’m so proud of you, we mostly recited at the time of sorows “METHE SAPNE SAARE APNE” and that covers all, nothing is left…
Hearing this I was on cloud nine, still unable to express those feelings in words. Completely stunned and filled with tears …..
He adds colour, meaning and spice to my life. I’m truly blessed to be your wife. Love you from the bottom of my heart. Who says u can never fall in love again???? U SURELY FALL IN LOVE WITH THE SAME PERSON AGAIN AND AGAIN , just don’t forget to see all those little things they do for you with so much love…..u would be smitten by the LOVE Bug..
So this valentines day I was able to go on a so much needed surprise date with my hubby. The kids are always with us, and although they would have really enjoyed the food we had, it was special to go out and have the much needed “we time”.
This date night definitely got some “Fantasy Fun” and made some new everlasting memories together
So, love birds, do not miss a single chance to enjoy the happiness and charm reverberating from LOVE!
Stay happy! Stay in love!
