Thursday Love: Time is the Ultimate Present

Quote of wisdom du jour: Lost time is never found again - Benjamin Franklin

They say that diamonds are a woman’s best friend…well in retrospect; TIME is a relationship’s best friend. And I’m not just referring to cursory time spent watching a movie or something like that, I’m talking about true, meaningful, quality time…that’s a gift that’s value can’t truly be measured.

While this NYE is fast approaching and hopefully you have some fun and safe plans in place, I don’t want you to forget that quality time with your significant other is extremely important. Here’s a suggestion that was given to me a long time ago, that I try to implement any time I can.

On a day when both you and your partner don’t have to work, put spending time with each other ahead of anything else.

Now…that's a little bit more difficult for my wife and I now that we have a child, because where we're off work, chances are he's going to be with us, but every once in a while, we get a day where it's just us and he's at daycare. That's when I take advantage of the opportunity. For me, we don't have to do anything special, it could just be cuddling in bed together while talking about what we want to do on our day off while not actually doing it. Or we can go out to breakfast or lunch or go to the beach together just the two of us.

 Everyone takes that advice differently, you could take that to mean that you get up early and cook your partner breakfast in bed, or surprise them with a picnic lunch in the park, etc. However you decide to interpret it is up to you. But remember, time spent together allows for better communication which can only strengthen your relationship.
As we move into the New Year, let’s all make it our goal to strengthen our relationships because if you don’t have love in your life….what do you really have? Hope all have a happy and successful 2012.

Remember...."We're all worth something....we just each have to individually determine our own worth!"

To my Fashionisette Family….it’s been a great year and I’m looking forward to working with you all and an even better year for us all as we move forward into 2012 and beyond!
