          Many couples shy away from doing projects together.  Yet it can be on of the most wonderful experiences in your relationship.  Be it remolding your house, planting a garden or starting a business the passion and desire of your relationship can be a huge motivator in the process.  Address the project as you would your relationship have conversations about it make sure to take time to nourish it and soon you will find it starting to take shape.  It is a wonderful feeling to fall into bed with each other after you have just completed or worked upon your project together.  This also helps to build relationship skills as you learn to talk to one another, you learn to share, and to work together for a common goal.  Isn't that what you do in your relationship?  If not then maybe you better start with your relationship.

April Fools

Who is the best at pulling pranks in your relationship?  Make sure to keep score.
          April Fools day is a day to pull pranks and have fun.  Incorporate this into your relationship by seeing who can get the best of each other.  Make sure your pranks are not hurtful or just plan nasty.  The day can be a fun filled day of excitement to see what happens next.  Use April Fools day to laugh and get connected with your partner maybe the two of you can work together to pull pranks on the kids or relatives that need a good laugh.   At the end of the day recap your pranks and see which ones worked the best and which ones your partner thought were the best.  Then start preparing for next year and see if you can be the April Fools King/Queen.

Fruit the passion food.

             In my opinion fruit is the sexiest food there is.  It is sweet and tasty, you can eat it with your fingers, and it is wonderful for your health.  Fruit is also light and doesn't sit heavy in your stomach like other foods.  Plus there are so many different varieties to choose from.   Next time you are thinking of a romantic dinner for your partner, why not just get a fruit tray.  You can add a bottle of champagne or some dip for the fruit.  Since fruit doesn't lay heavy on you, the two of you will be ready for more adventurous activities.  Wink Wink.

Chores don't have to be bores.

Chores can be less of a bore.
            We all think of the chores around the house as being boring mundane tasks that have to be completed.  Both of you most likely have certain chores that you perform to keep the house running smoothly.  Well in an effort to make them more exciting you can do many different things.  For starters how about switching them up from time to time.  If you usually do the laundry and your partner does the dishes well just switch them up.  Another great way to make chores go faster and seem less boring is to turn on some music and dance as you complete the chores.  Take time out of chore to dance with your partner and soon you both will have a smile on your face.  Rewards are a great incentive to get chores done so set a reward for when the chores are finished.  You can say once the house is clean we can go out for a drink.  Lastly make it a challenge or a race if you will.  Both of you choose a chore and then see who can get done first.  These simple but interesting ways to help chores become less boring are just a few examples.   We would love to hear how you make your chores more interesting.

Moonlight Drive - The Doors

          Sometime you listen to a song and the lyrics seem to have special meaning to you.  It makes you wonder if the artists was thinking the same thing you were as they wrote the song.  My partner I and have recently been in awe of the moon and it's powers and with the amazing full moon the other night it made me remember a song.  Moonlight Drive by The Doors is just one of the many songs by The Doors with powerful lyrics that seem so deep when you really look into them.   Below is a copy of the lyrics look into them and see what you find.

Moonlight Drive - The Doors

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Penetrate the evenin' that the
City sleeps to hide
Let's swim out tonight, love
It's our turn to try
Parked beside the ocean
On our moonlight drive

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Surrender to the waiting worlds
That lap against our side

Nothin' left open
And no time to decide
We've stepped into a river
On our moonlight drive

Let's swim to the moon
Let's climb through the tide
You reach your hand to hold me
But I can't be your guide

Easy, I love you
As I watch you glide
Falling through wet forests
On our moonlight drive, baby
Moonlight drive

Come on, baby, gonna take a little ride
Down, down by the ocean side
Gonna get real close
Get real tight
Baby gonna drown tonight
Goin' down, down, down

Romantic Gifts

Love Coupons are a great romantic gift idea.
          Are you stuck in the same routine of giving chocolates and flowers year after year? Whether you're looking for romantic birthday gift ideas, romantic Christmas gift ideas, or gifts for any other occasion. Here are some creative romantic gift ideas to help bring back the fun in gift giving!
Tip #1: Keep in mind that a thoughtful gift is usually much better to give your partner than a gift that has little thought, but is very expensive. Doing something creative for your partner, or taking them somewhere special usually end up being the most memorable gifts you can give.
Tip #2: To add excitement to giving any gift, make it a surprise! You'll be amazed at how much it more fun gift giving is when there's a surprise twist.
1. Cook your partner a romantic candlelight dinner. Decorate the room with flowers and candles, and have their favorite music playing in the background.
2. Give them some romantic love coupons
3. Create a memorable website dedicated to your love for your partner. Have pictures and poems throughout the site and list the reasons that you love them.
4. Take your partner for dance lessons. Dancing is something that many couples want to learn, but never get around to. Not only is dancing fun, it will also bring you closer together as a couple in a very sensual way.
5. Take them to see their favorite artist in concert. To keep them from guessing the surprise, get the tickets for a concert in another city that you will have to drive or fly to. They shouldn't guess your surprise and wont buy the tickets on their own because it's so far away.
6. Get tickets to see a play together or go to a comedy club.
7. Find an old photo of the two of you and have it made into a portrait.
8. Buy a romantic painting for them.
9. Take them on a romantic weekend getaway to some far off destination. Pay attention to places they talk about wanting to go, and plan the trip to perfectly suit everything they enjoy doing. From planning excursions while you're there, to visiting monuments you know they'll love.
10. Make a scavenger hunt for them. Have them search for different clues to eventually find their gift.
All in all the number one thing to remember in giving a romantic gift to your partner is to be thoughtful. Have anything and everything you're planning made to suit what your partner loves and enjoys. Their reaction will be worth the extra effort.
Have fun with it!
