Significant Other Saturday #6

"No significant other is perfect and it doesn’t really matter. What matters is how we set ourselves up to think about them. If we focus on their failures, their annoyances, or ways in which we have felt hurt by them, then we will interact with them as a hurt and frustrated and disappointed partner. That makes for miserable living for ourselves and our partner and those around us. But if we focus on their strengths, their potential, and the ways in which we feel blessed by them, then we will interact with them as a forgiving, blessed, and contented partner. And there’s no greater need a partner has than to feel respected by their lover. If they feel like all they do is hurt, disappoint, and frustrate, then the same atmosphere and the same actions will be perpetuated. But if they feel that their partner can be happy and responsive regardless of their own shortcomings, they feels respected and empowered. Then a positive atmosphere is perpetuated and actions, once destructive, can improve in an environment that is rich for cultivation and growth into deepened respect and intimacy."

Significant Other Saturday is a day in which we can all get together and remember why we fell in love, why we continue to love, and why we will always love our partners. Too often we take our relationships for granted and just expect them to be there. Join Ida @ Eternity Kind of Love, and me - Rachael, as we challenge you to be attentive to your relationship and tell us all about your partner and why they are so special to you!

Today Hubby and I are in Richmond enjoying the Nascar race, but I couldn't go without talking about him a little bit this weekend! Pictures to come =)

So far we've:

- Introduced our partners
- Shared five things we love about them
- Shared one thing we need to work on
- Talked about our favorite shared hobby
- Had a freebie day where I talk about how we met

This weeks topic was:

Favorite Anniversary

My favorite anniversary was our one-year anniversary of being married.
We got to go on a 3-day stay to a local ski resort. This particular one, Massanutten, located in Harrisonburg, VA, is very special to me. I have alot of memories there and have been going there almost every year since I was born.

Our family used to go every Easter break (yes I said EASTER!! dangit!) and we would go to the egg hunt and the Easter Bunny would come to the condo, and we got to hang out with our cousin and aunt and uncle all week. We swam, played ping pong, and hiked the observation trail almost every year. So I knew that this was a place that I had to take my hubby, and we were offered a weekend stay in exchange for a tour and a sales pitch. It was a ton of fun.

Our condo was small but awesome. It was really about the size of a large hotel room.

Unfortunately this is the only picture I have left from the trip. This is taken at their indoor water park.

We had a great time and I can't wait to take Natalie there!
(We are hoping to go in the next month or so!)

We want to hear all about the loves of your lives!
