Today I want to dedicate this post to the love of my life, my rock, my husband, Noam. We’ve known each other since we were 6 years old since we both grew up in a small town in Israel.
We have been married for 6 years and every day I try to find new ways to make him feel special...
Oftentimes, it's hard to keep the spark alive when we've been together for so long so I'm going to share some tips and tricks with you.
For an easy & inexpensive way to make him smile everyday, I usually write him a quick note and leave it in his briefcase before he goes to work. Sometimes I'll leave a note on a napkin and wrap his sandwich with it (homemade of course, lol) . I'll try to hide it in a new place everyday and I know what smile he has on his face when he finds my notes. He always texts me to tell me that he found the daily note and how much he loves reading my words. Something simple like this can change his day completely and put a big smile on his face.
Since I'm at home with Romi all day, I try to make dinner every night. Noam loves when I cook. He really appreciates the effort behind it (it's not easy to cook when you have 3 kids running around) He returns the favor by getting up early on the weekends, letting me sleep in, and making me breakfast.
Once a week is date night. Lately, we've decided that instead of going out for dinner to a restaurant, we take turns planning a surprise date location! For example, one week when it was my turn, I chose a spa evening so when he wasn't looking, I took his swimwear and packed it in my bag so he was prepared. He was completely in shock when he realizes that I took care of everything! Can't wait for his turn... :)
I've noticed that in order to keep the spark alive, it's not just about the grand gestures that make each other feel special... it's really about the little things, especially helping each other out with raising our kids. Love notes, waking up early and making coffee, letting each other sleep in, teamwork during bedtime, that's the way to go.
How do you keep the spark alive??? Let me know!
