Lesson #5: Simplicity

5 Aug

I’ve mentioned before how Dr. B and I are taking the Marriage Mojo course offered by Simple Marriage.  The last lesson I blogged about, we each wrote down what our dream marriage looked like, and shared our vision with each other.  It was a good eye-opening, bond-building experience, especially for me.  My husband really, really, really loves the heck out of me:-)  I highly recommend that you try this exercise, it will be a great experience for you and your husband or fiance.

So, Tuesday we were especially excited for lesson #5 titled Simple Romance.  This lesson focused on bringing the romance back using a novel approach: Simplicity.  We had to pick a romantic activity from the list below, and do it tonight during our 15 minute session.

  • Look through photo albums together
  • Do what she likes for the night
  • Do what he likes for the night
  • Make out!
  • Go to the park and push each other on the swings
  • Go for a walk and hold hands
  • Give each other a quick massage
  • Have a glass of wine on the back deck
  • Listen to music you enjoyed while you were dating
  • Enjoy a bath…together

Dr. B and I decided that we would take turns.  He would choose an activity one night and I would choose one for the next night.  I thought “cool”  I figured he would probably choose either the massage or the bubble bath.  To my surprise, when he came home from work he had a bouquet of flowers, two bottles of wine, and a card! (Gotta love this man)!  He explained that he wanted us to go through all of our pictures, then pick 5 of each other, and write a caption about why we chose that picture.  We decided we would make a gallery and upload the pictures and captions.  Oh, and we would do this while sitting out back, and drinking a few glasses of wine.  I loved the idea of being creative and romantic at the same time.  Of course Dr. B. went above and beyond with his video, but I was his muse so I’m not complaining 🙂  Tell me what do you think….
