Hey Friends, 

Sometimes, it's the little things that make the biggest impact in a relationship. You know, those tiny, seemingly insignificant moments that make your heart swell with love and appreciation.💖 Things like: 

  1. Surprise Hugs and Kisses 💏 Those unexpected hugs and kisses that your partner plants on you when you're just going about your day can make even the most mundane tasks feel like a romantic adventure. Increase the intentional touch in your relationship to keep that spark alive! People want to feel desired, so go show your partner you want them!
  2. Texts from the Heart 📱❤️ A simple text message – "I love you," "I miss you," or "I'm thinking of you" – has the magical power to brighten your day and remind you that you're cherished. It's about thinking of someone and then taking the next step to let them know what you were thinking about, don't keep it to yourself. 
  3. Inside Jokes 😂 Sharing laughter with your significant other over a private joke creates a bond that's both fun and uniquely yours. It's like a secret language that only the two of you speak. Keeping your relationship playful and full of joy increases your bond! Laughter truly is the best medicine. 
  4. Acts of Service 🏠 When your partner does something small, like making you a cup of coffee ☕ or taking care of a chore you don't enjoy, it's a reminder that they truly care and want to make your life easier. What act of service can you do today for someone you love or care about?
  5. Small Tokens of Appreciation 🎁 Little gifts, love notes, or even just a sincere "thank you" go a long way in showing your partner that you value their presence and efforts in the relationship. Next time you are at the store or gas station pick something up that they would like or enjoy and give it to them randomly! You'll be surprised to joy it brings. 
  6. Listening Ears 👂 When your partner lends a listening ear, whether it's to your daily ramblings or your deepest concerns, it's a powerful reminder that they're there to support and understand you, no matter what. Be present, listen intently and show your partner you really care and are invested in what they are saying. 
  7. Quality Time ⏳ In our busy lives, setting aside time to be fully present with your partner, even if it's just cuddling on the couch or taking a walk together, can make all the difference in keeping that love spark alive. I challenge you to carve out a little extra time for your partner this week to see how it impacts the relationship overall. Be intentional, finding space for one another.
