I can’t over emphasize the importance of little times of fun and silliness. The tiniest, simplest and often least expensive things can make for moments of real intimacy. Here’s a tip from a generous wife that gives you a glimpse into what I mean. (thanks, Jennifer!)
This week our date night was a game night, and I started the day off by inviting him to play hangman with me on our bathroom mirror. I used a dry erase maker to leave blank spots that would become a love message. We had a blast going back and forth throughout the day – I’d walk by and see he had guessed a new letter and I would fill in the blank or continue to draw my “hangman.” (My stick figure drawing became something less lethal and way more fun.) By the end of the night, he had guessed his message and we got to go do what the stick couple on the mirror was doing. The next morning, he had initiated a new game. Fun!
