Week 5 Goal of 2010: Affection

As written in the book:
Goal:  Give everyone you love extra physical affection.
 I confess, I was considering not posting this one since we're pretty well set here.  Being that we have only been married for nearly two years (Wow!  Time flies!) and we don't have children to interject into our personal time (yet), we like to smother each other with hugs and all manner of smooching.

But then I thought, "Not everyone does this."  I considered that I may have some readers who might like the encouragement.

Anyone ever read the Five Love Languages?  I'm still in the "getting-to-it" stages, but thankfully I have quite a few family members who have and have explained it very well.  My hubster is Physical love chap.  I took a test and came up tri-lingual.  Yeah, that's right.  Three main love languages.  Physical, Words of Affirmation, and Quality Time.  I'm needy, what can I say?  Luckily my husband knows this.  

Janene E. Ustach (remember she's the author of the goal journal), suggests giving extra hugs and kisses before leaving the house.  Go out of your way to show just a little extra affection.

Hmmm, maybe that's why my husband ran into the room and gave me major kisses after having a bite of the yummy roast I made.  (Yes, he was in the other room.  With his other love.  World of Warcraft.)  Haha.  It definitely made me smile.

Take the time to show those you love a little extra "Lovin'".  Try it.  I bet you'll like it.


  1. It definitely gets harder the longer you are married. Thanks for the encouragement. We should hangout sometime. Yep your right we just rearranged, we do it pretty often. I'll have to get your phone number from Suz.

  2. It IS important to remember to do that because as you go along life gets more and more in the way!

  3. Great post and great study. I love The Five Love Languages. Looks like you are well on your way!
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Come on back anytime. :)
