Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge where for the month of April we post everyday except Sundays, corresponding to each letter of the alphabet. I’ve chosen to blog about keeping the romance alive in a relationship along with ideas for married couple dates. Each post will also have a romantic song for you to listen to whilst you read.
Today’s song is the hauntingly beautiful I’ve Loved You Before by Melissa Etheridge – here’s an example of the wonderful lyrics.
When I think of how you know me,
no doubts no thinking twice.
When your smile can be so soothing,
a familiar paradise.
When there’s no one else that makes me whole.
I never wanting more.
I get this feeling.
I know I’ve loved you before.
Whether you’ve been together one year or seventy years, then your life is full of moments that have created those wonderful memories of shared moments together. There will also be those moments that weren’t so great for whatever reason, but those have also shaped you into the couple you are, and I know for us it makes us even more grateful for the strength of our relationship.
Sometimes they can be big moments, like sitting at the Oyster Bar
on Sydney Harbour with the iconic bridge behind us.
Or they can be really funny moments like the photo that reminds me that just after I took it the bird on Ken’s head decided to poo on him.
Take time to reminisce together over your shared experiences, especially when life keeps getting in the way. Remember that those moments aren’t just the big ones, it may be something as simple as the time my beloved hid a toy unicorn in my overnight bag when I had to go away for work (I’m a bit obsessive about unicorns). A small moment that whenever I look at that unicorn instantly makes me smile.
Today’s quote – truer words were never spoken:
Pamela & Ken
