Date Night Ritual
Consider making “smelling the roses” a date night ritual. Whether you are at dinner, driving to an engagement or on a walk, ask your spouse to “smell the roses” with you. Take turns naming three things you recently experienced that brought you joy or met a specific need.
Pay attention to the positive energy created by a thankful heart.
“Smelling the roses” is a “couple conversation” that builds unity and intimacy.
