Don't Loose Your Sparkle

All relationships go through their ups and downs, and mine is certainly no different. It is so easy to get caught up with the every day distractions that life throws your way that sometimes without even realising it, your relationship comes in on the bottom rung of the ladder, and you find that you are leaving each other and your relationship unattended.

Earlier this year my wonderful husband and I realised that we had been neglecting "us" that we were just rolling along going about the business of life. 
We had not lost our love or commitment to each other but we had lost our "sparkle" Somewhere along the road we had taken a sharp turn and ended up on a road that we had originally vowed not to go down. 
The conversations were almost non existent, and as for alone time........well who has the time ?

Thankfully we realised that we needed to stop the roller coaster, take a deep breathe and get back to the basics of our relationship. It had been too long since we had put ourselves first and with our boys growing up so rapidly, it finally clicked that now is our time. It's time to spend some quality one on one time with each other and bring our "sparkle" back to what it once was.

Coffee dates, a glass of wine in our backyard, and recently our four glorious days in Brisbane. Long walks, quiet dinners, the Pink concert and a night time ride on the Brisbane Wheel at South Bank was a highlight. It was romantic, it was special and a time that I will never forget. We are on the right track and with continued effort on both our parts I know that our "sparkle" will continue to shine for many years to come........
