Appreciate Your Spouse
By Stephanie @ Our... on June 19, 2012
Alex and I have topped 100 days on The Love Dare (HECK YEA BABY) and our most recently completed dare was all about appreciation.
In short we had to spell out what traits the other had and that we appreciated in each other. I thought this was such a great dare and one that really, every couple should strive to do every week. Or heck, barring every week at the very least once a month!
Alex and I focused on characteristics because that is what our dare called for us to do. Alex expressed gratitude for things like my assertiveness and the fact that I think. A lot. (I think he may have been a tad sarcastic in that last one.) While I expressed gratitude for Alex’s optimism and physical strength. Because those bugs aren’t going to squash themselves! We simply told each other one thing each night for a week. However if you wanted to really far with this Pinterest has a TON of great ideas!
For example y’all could surprise your spouse with a treat in their car before they go to work. I’ve had a lot of success doing this with Alex around various holidays so that the Easter Bunny, Santa, and LOL Cupid always show up in our home.
For the rest of this post check out Appreciate Them!
Happy Off-Roadin' Y'all,
