Surprise Clean Sweep

Organize his closet, put his shirts together, his pants, his ties, his shoes. Buy matching hangers or storage. This is an easy way to put a smile on his face and doesn't take that much time to prepare!

Special Date

For a very special date, return to the place where it all began. Where ever you sealed the deal (marriage or proposal) , at a church, temple, garden or a beach, take a picnic or flowers and dessert and sit where you can see it. It doesn't have to be the exact location especially if you've moved since then but someplace that is similar. Then eat your lovely meal and reminisce about that day and every year since you've been married. If you really want to get into it, write some vows or a poem or just let them know how special they are to you.

Don't Change

Some of you may have heard "Don't Change" by Musiq Soulchild on this site's playlist. The first time I heard it was with the music video and I cried myself silly (no, I wasn't pregnant at the time). So if you feel like getting sappy and lovey watch this and make sure you watch it til the end.

#304 "Walk a mile in his shoes"

Rethink your romantic gestures:

* After an especially tough week, he'd probably prefer a massage to going out dancing.
* Don't bring her flowers when what she really needs is two hours of peace and quiet.
* Does she need a quiet respite- or an exciting change of pace?

Plan accordingly.
