To drink or not to drink

Yahoo Shine's 5 Surprising Secrets To a Happy Marriage is really an interesting read.
The tips for a Happy marriage is interesting with  a delicious twist.
I especially love this:
"If you're going to drink a cocktail, pour for two. Although it's unclear why, both married and dating couples who enjoy between one and three drinks together feel happier than those who indulge when they're apart. "Individuals who drink with their partner report feeling increased intimacy and decreased relationship problems the next day, compared to individuals who drink apart from their partner or do not drink at all," lead author Ash Levitt, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow at University of Buffalo's Research Institute on Addictions, said in a press release. The effects were seen in couples who mirror each other's drinking habits, so if your partner is abstaining, you should too."
Do you drink together? We do sometimes. After reading this article I realised that the hubbie who has always been a  rum and pepsi drinker actually drinks cranberry and rum whenever I do drink alcohol. Strange the little ways you adapt to each other.

Read the rest of the article here.
And here is another good read : 8 Acts Of Chivalry To Bring Back

Maybe you have a drink or two together but most of all have a great weekend together.

Happy Valentines day

I am not a big music person as in I very rarely know who sings the song I am humming along.
But i have been really, belatedly, loving John Legend.
I am especially in love with the song he wrote for his now wife Chrissy Teigen- All of Me.
Makes me think of the hubbie. and makes me smile.

Happy 15 Anniversary to us!

Is there a song that does that for you?
Happy Valentine's Day my friends.

Hope you have a great day sharing hugs and kisses with family, friends and if there is one your significant other.

Making it a habit.

It is really interesting cruising around the webosphere ( yes I know, not a word) when it comes to marriage and staying that way the advice is not original.

Touch each other every day. Hold hands, sit close together for a few minutes.

Make time for each other. Spend time with each other.

Don't ever bad mouth your significant other.

Choose to be together. Choose to stay married.

And that is not a bad thing. To me it means that it is all tried and tested so should be easy enough to follow. Or at least be worth it to try some of the advice.
Click here for Habits of a Hot Marriage-great read.

If you have been passed through here a few time you would know that February is my favourite month. I go into great detail in this past post

Valentine's day is 2 days away wishing you all the day and the surprises that you wish for when it does come. I love this post about Valentine's day expectations from the new to me blog An Inch of Gray. Click here  to enjoy as well. It made me giggle.  

The hubbie and I will be celebrating 15 years of marriage. What an interesting ride it has been so far.
Here is to many many more.

Communication is key

First post for the year!!! Screech how did that happen? Sigh oh well i will just skip the preamble and apologies and just drop a few lines on you.

Saw this weird little video entitled  "If you want a successful long-term relationship of any kind. Here Are 3 Invaluable Things To Know" and it very simply outlines exactly what I like to say here when I do come a-visiting.

And the three things are


Authenticity (honesty and candor)

 and Communication.

have a look....

What do you think of it?
Hope to be seeing more of you this year of 2014 and the year of the horse.
