I was recently talking with my sister in law who gave me a great suggestion for a post. It’s actually a favorite thing of mine. (It’s the romantic in me!) So, I thought I’d share this wonderful idea to help you connect with your loved one. Y’all, if you ever want to surprise your sweetheart with something simple and sweet hit the play button on your Ipod and slow dance in the kitchen.
Think of the scene from The Notebook when Noah and Allie dance in the street. Or on a more grander level think of the scene with Johnny and Baby in Dirty Dancing. Everybody loves “I’ve Had the Time of My Life”! It doesn’t have to be anything crazy like that, though. The connection you get from a simple, yet sweet dance just the two of you is something super special. It shows thoughtfulness, affection, and attention. Plus, when you surprise your loved one it’s bonus points! 😉 So next time your sweetie is in the kitchen, whether they’re cooking or cleaning up, surprise them with a slow dance. Get lost in each other in a moment where it’s just the two of you.
Here is a list of my favorite songs to dance to. These are all special to me in some way, so if you have your own special songs to dance to by all means use those as well!
