It’s this easy to reconnect with your loved ones and better yet…it’s FREE! No money for a fancy dinner and Valentine’s Day gifts? No problem!
By Nikki Pennington | staff writer for The Snap Mom
Most of us look forward to Valentine’s Day and spending time with the one we love. Some of us will get flowers, cards, candy, and gifts. Others will be taken out to dinner or surprised with a kid-free date. At some point in the evening, it is a sure bet you will begin to talk about your sweet children. Sometimes my husband and I can get so caught up in talking about our children when we are alone together, the entire date is done and over before we know it. We drive home and realize we only talked about them; we didn’t talk about us.
Taking the time to get to know your S.O. doesn’t have to be done just on Valentine’s Day, but let’s try and make it a point to get to know them better on this special day. Here is a fun idea to reconnect with your S.O. at dinner or even at home after the kids are in bed.
Write the following questions on separate sheets of paper.
1. What do you admire about me?
2. What do I do that makes you smile?
3. What do I do that makes you laugh?
4. How do I make you feel?
Trade the pieces of paper and answer the questions about each other. You might be surprised at the answers. You might also find yourself learning something new about your S.O. You can even add different questions to make the mood a little spicier or funnier.
Either way, I promise you will both walk away feeling closer.
