It was 70 degrees this weekend so naturally we are thinking about SPRING CLEANING!
Below are some key excerpts from a fabulous post titled ‘9 Tips On How To Spring Clean Your Marriage’ at the great marriage blog, The Romantic Vineyard. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
- Clean the windows — make sure you are being transparent with your spouse about, well — everything! There should be no secrets. Open the windows and let the fresh air in. Do you welcome outside inspiration from friends, teachings or books?
- Move the furniture and clean underneath — is there anything in your marriage you’ve lost and forgotten? Ways you used to romance each other. Kindnesses you used to show before life got so busy? Plan to elevate these things back into your life. You will be reminded how much you enjoyed them before they got shoved unknowingly under the couch.
- Sanitize the bathrooms — there is no more intimate or private room in the home than the bathroom. And it is the one room that should be cleaned the deepest and the most often. So too, with our sexual intimacy. (yes, I’m really comparing our sex life to the bathroom. lol) Pay close attention to your ways and keep the marriage bed pure. Make love often and watch your relationship shine!
- Polish the furniture — Dust reveals places no one has touched recently. If dust is accumulating on the furniture, it is one of the first things guests notice in a home. May your marriages be dust-free.
