Summer Love and Fun
Marriage is NOT Boring!
It’s ‘HOT outside! It’s ‘scorching out here! Whew, I need some ‘COLD’ water! I can’t take this heat!
We have all heard one or all of these phrases during the summer months, or we have said them ourselves. LOL. Some of us love the summer month and there are some who absolutely ‘hate’ the super warm summer days. I for one (Cynthia) love the summer heat. I don’t like the winter cold at all, so I made a vow a long time ago that I will NOT complain about the heat. 😊
What is different about summer versus winter? In summer we can wear less clothes; no hat, coat, scarf, gloves or boots needed. In the summer we see beautiful green grass, gorgeous colorful flowers blooming, blue skies, and warm sunny days. You can go jump in the water to be refreshed and have fun or sit on a park bench and enjoy the moment.
There is so much that couples can do during the summer months. We want to encourage you to take advantage of them. Be in the moment and find joy and enjoyment in it. Here are some things that you can do:
Go to the beach
Go to a pool
Have a picnic or BBQ in the park
Have a backyard BBQ
Walk along a hiking path or around the lake
Visit nature centers and outdoor gardens
Go to a National park or amusement park
Travel, travel and travel some more.
Whatever you do, make sure you do some fun and exciting things with your spouse. We want to encourage you to make a list. List some things that each of you would like to do together before the summer is over and then go down that list and check them off as you do them. Recently, my husband asked me if I would like to do something that I enjoy doing today. I said to him, “like what”? He suggested that we go feed the ducks. I got so excited I couldn’t believe that he would suggest we go do something that I enjoy and he literally thinks is no fun at all. LOL That day he took me to the lake in our local downtown and we fed the ducks and took a casual 2 mile walk around the lake and observed and enjoyed the natural life and scenes.
What is it that you enjoy doing in nice weather? Make a list of all the things that you would like to do before summer is over. Share it with your spouse, fiancé, sweetheart. Tell them why you want to do it and what’s in it for them (WIIFT). Try to make it enjoyable for the two of you or go do something afterwards that the other one likes. Right now due to what’s going on in the world, a lot of options are out the window. Don’t let that stop you. Be creative. The key is to enjoy life together. Make plans. Create memories. Have a little fun!
