Staying Connected

Although unintentional, I find couples (married, engaged, or dating) in a steady relationship sometimes forget to take time out for their own relationships because of duties and obligations.  However, it is fun, romantic and necessary to connect with each other romantically from time to time, away from responsibilities.  Planning can be difficult after a long day at work and/or with kids at home, but if love is not watered from time to time, might it not dry out?

The other day, I got all dolled up to attend the symphony. Since temperature was sort of cozy, I decided to wear one of my favorite dresses.
I piled my hair into a loose knot for that effortless casual look.  

My Outfit:
Chanel pastel dress (aka the I-will-eat-alot-n-still-look-skinny dress) --- I don't know how folks Chanel does it but many dress will look simply plain on the hanger but wonderful on wearer, enhancing and hiding all at the right place.
Tod's beige heel
 Even though both pieces are considered luxury pieces, I do consider them savvy purchases because cost per wear is quite low.

So how do you stay connected in a relationship?

  6. Early on in our relationship, my husband and I agreeded to have a "date night" each week, With the demands of work, friends, family, and other things -- we were losing our connection with each other. Our date nights ranged from a nice dinner followed by a movie, to bowling, to a simple cup of coffee at the local coffee shop.

    Now that we are new parents, the date nights have become increasingly more important. Between the feedings, the diapers, and everything else that accompanies our daughter...it would be too easy to start seeing my husband as merely another parent, instead of the man I love. While our date nights now consist of homemade pizza and television -- we still enjoy the time we can spend talking with each other without interuption.

  7. The hubby and I make it a point to have "couple's night" every week. It gives us some much needed alone time to look forward to!

  8. Your hair looks so incredibly amazing. The loose bun is forever an effortlessly chic style - gorgeous!

    I'm not in a relationship at the moment; but I would think that spontaneity would be a wonderful way to stay connected in a relationship! :)
