Consider as a resolution to get away as a couple once every 2-3 months. Yes, I know there are a billion reasons why this is difficult, but this one-on-one time can be incredibly rejuvenating, both individually and as a couple.
Sleep late. Make love. Go see a movie. Go for a walk. Talk about important stuff. Talk about silly stuff. Kiss a lot. Reconnect.
(To cut the cost, take your own food and use hotels during off season (or house sit for a friend). ~ One time when we couldn’t afford to go away, we got a friend to take our kid for a couple of days, closed the curtains, turned on the answering machine and had a holiday at home. It can be done. Sometimes you just need to be a little creative.)
(Remember, when you break a resolution, don’t throw it away, just get back up and start again.)
… Let us spend the night in the villages. Let us rise early and go to the vineyards … Song of Songs 7:11b-12a NAS
