Just Being With You

 

It is important for you to get away from the grind of daily life and stoke the lower fires of physical passion as well as strengthen your emotional connection.

Choose a place that will accommodate your pursuit of quality time. Our objective is always to be in a place where we have the option of staying indoors all day or going out if we please. When we choose a place, we want it to have things that promote romance like balconies with good views, fireplaces, Jacuzzis, a quaint place to take a romantic stroll like a garden or park path or a pool to lounge around. We don’t have to be far from home or in a tourist trap. Our goal is to be together unencumbered by things familiar or burdensome.

And it doesn’t have to be expensive. Many places have coupons for local eateries and front desk staff know the best and least expensive places to dine. We sit in parks and watch summer theater (free), we bring our kites and fly them on beaches (free), we drive up or down the California coast and soak in the sites (price of a tank of gas) or just sit out on a balcony above the complex pool and watch the children play and moms chase their babies around the kiddie pools. The simplest pleasures are often the most memorable.

The quantity of time should be balanced with quality. Not everyone can afford to get away for two weeks. You may struggle to get one week to yourselves at this stage in your lives. That’s okay. Take 2-3 days where you can get it. During this time, don’t schedule a lot of stuff. Just focus on activities that are not strenuous but will give you the togetherness you seek. Take board games with you. Have a digital camera handy for pics!

The activities above are just a few no cost or low cost options of many. The goal is to refresh your bodies and relationship. Make love multiple times on one day. Sleep in on another. Whatever it is you do, do it together.

Our recent trip to the Napa Valley area north of San Francisco reminded us of how special it is to be with our spouse. When the children are gone, we’ll be left with each other and we don’t want that to be unpleasantly surprised at what we find at that new station of life!
