Distance can be a challenge in our marriage. Especially during the holidays. Which is why Steven & I find ways to bring us closer together. No matter how big or small the action is, it’s that special feeling of togetherness that keeps us connected.
Steven is participating in a Christmas Door Decorating Contest. This is a project where we can share our creativeness. We did this last year and won 2nd place! This year we are shooting for 1st place! (read his blog: –Door Decorating Contest–).
We’ve been brainstorming. I sent him several sketches and told him of some fun ideas that’ll add uniqueness & imagination. It’s fun to get updates from him along the way on how things are coming. And after the contest, he’ll get a picture taken standing by the completed masterpiece. I can’t wait to see it!
Silly as it may sound, I look forward to things like this with my husband. It’s fun! With all the miles that separate us, we grab ahold of any opportunity we can to do things together. And if we can’t see any obvious opportunities, we then create something that’s personalized just for us.
