Time As A Couple...


It will never be easy to make "time" as a couple...
With 5 kids added into the mix there will always be something going on...
But to me & I hope to him, it is extremely important that Bob & I make time for "us"...

From time alone at the start of the day, to time alone at the end of the day...
From simple text messages to a few phone calls during the day...
Weekends that it is just Bob and I to date nights during the week...
I adore, I cherish and I love the time I get alone with him...


Maybe that is selfish of me, maybe I am asking or wanting to much...
but in all honesty, I have one failed marriage under my belt...
and I don't plan to ever go down that route again.

I don't remember ever making "time" for Chad and I...
I don't remember, no I know we didn't put our relationship first...
We didn't make time for "us" or do anything as a "couple" that didn't involve our children...


This past weekend we got that "us" time...
Both kids were actually away with the other parent...
We haven't had a weekend of just him and I sense we started dating...

We had "BIG" plans head to his parents place...
But Bob ended up having to work Saturday for a bit and it was freezing...
I was disappointed at first but we still made the best of the weekend & I enjoyed each moment.

Even though we didn't go anywhere the weekend was amazing, relaxing and fun...
We hung out, got sucked into Sons Of Anarchy, went shopping, went out to eat, spent time with friends, I got a pedicure with Karla while he worked, and we got to go to the Wild game.

 

Don't get me wrong...
I enjoy the time we have with his kids...
I enjoy the time we have with my kids...
And I love the time we have with our kids together...
I look forward to the things we have planned for this winter and the summer...

To me though, there is something special about spending time with just him...
To be able to actually talk and hold "adult" conversations without little ears listening...
To litterly feel the bond between us grow stronger, my feelings for him grow larger...
and my desire and want to be with him grow bigger all happens when we are together...
but even more so when it is just him and I together alone.


I know that might sound bad but our relationship is still so fresh and new...
We still have much to learn about each other and we still should be in that dating phase...
though with children that tends to get taken away a lot faster, I still want to date Bob...
and I want to continue to date him for the rest of my life.

Both coming from relationships, long serious relationships...
We both have things or areas we are "stuck" in...
Areas that we have trouble giving in on...
or things that we may expect...


Every relationship takes work...
and this relationship is gonna have it's work cut out...
But I can't wait to see the outcome and I can't wait for the future...
each and every day I look forward to with Bob!

I now know how important it is...
to put your relationship with your partner at the top of the list...
To make "us" time a priority, to refresh your relationship...
To keep that love alive.


I love this man...
Couldn't have dreamed up anything or anyone better!
Happy Girl.. Lucky Girl.. Crazy In Love Girl!
