21-Day Valentine’s Challenge: Extending the Romance Beyond Today

This was such a fun post to put together for the Happy Wives Club! If you’re not big on celebrating Valentine’s Day, then you might just enjoy this challenge ๐Ÿ™‚

I still remember the very first Valentineโ€™s Day that my husband (then boyfriend) and I spent together nearly 15 years ago. He surprised me by cooking a steak dinner at home (and he by no means enjoyed cooking), and actually spent time going clothes shopping for me (he still doesnโ€™t care to shop at all). The night was complete with chocolate, a teddy bear and lavender roses (my favorite).

All these years later, while I love spending time together and celebrating Valentineโ€™s Day, it has nothing to do with the actual day. I see it as a day to celebrate the love of my life and all the joy heโ€™s brought me many years later (and of course, I love flowers!). Yes, Valentineโ€™s Day is sweet, but every day is Valentineโ€™s Day in our house. So I thought itโ€™d be great to start a marriage love challenge to emphasize that our love goes way beyond one day of the 365 in the year.

21 Day Romance Challenge

Week 1

Day 1ย โ€“ February 14th:ย ย Leave a love note. Surprise your hubby and write him a short love note about why you appreciate him. Stick it in his lunch bag, on the seat of his car, in his jacket pocket, or anywhere else heโ€™ll be surprised to find it.

Day 2ย โ€“ February 15th:ย ย Hug and hug again.ย A good hug can be a powerful unspoken word. Take time today to snuggle up and cuddle with your man.

Day 3ย โ€“ February 16th:ย ย Ask him what he needs.ย When was the last time you offered your hubby some help before he asked you for it? Ask him what would make his day today and then be sure to help him make it happen.

Day 4ย โ€“ February 17th:ย ย Thank him.ย Is there something your husband always does that comes as second nature? Maybe heโ€™s the one who always cooks, or he always collects the trash, or makes sure you get some time in with your girlfriends. Whatever it is, be sure to thank him specifically for that thing.

Day 5ย โ€“ February 18th:ย ย Show your husband some love.ย But show him in the love language that he prefers. Have himtake the quizย if youโ€™re not sure.ย Understanding my husbandโ€™s love languageย was a huge eye opener for me.

Day 6ย โ€“ February 19th:ย ย Flirt.ย Remember how you used to tease and flirt with your man before you got married? Get back to your high school/college flirty girl kinda days. Ask him to choose your bra & panty set for the day, whisper sweet nothings in his ear, or touch him where/how you know he likes to be touched. The sky is the limit.

Day 7ย โ€“ February 20th:ย ย Kiss. The focus today is on kissing, so kiss like you did before you were married. Letโ€™s see if you can get allย 25 of these kisses in today.
