Little Ways I Show Appreciation

Sometimes I love my fiancé so much that I don’t know how to express it! At the beginning of a relationship there are gifts and grand gestures but I can’t afford to be dramatic every day!

It occurred to me that I don’t actually have to be over the top to show Austin that I care about him.  Sometimes the best way to show someone you care about them is to simply BE there for them. On the days that I feel extra lovey dovey here are a few things I like to do to show Austin how much I love him:

Do a couple of extra chores around the apartment so when he gets off work he comes back to a tidy home (this one gets bonus points because he is a neat freak).

Offer to drive my car to go grocery shopping so he doesnt have to refill his gas tank so soon.

Take time to ask him extra questions about his day and being extra present when he tells me about what he had for lunch and which co workers were being obnoxious.

Put on some good music and dance with him (because he’s always the first one to bust out his moves).

Hang out with him in the kitchen while he cooks dinner.

Curl up on the couch and play video games next to each other (we have very different taste in games so we hardly play together, but being close to each other is what counts).

Ask him to tell me 3 things he likes about himself and elaborate about why I agree with each one as he lists them off.

My list could go on forever I’m sure but today I was just feeling really in love and wanted to share it with the world. ❤ Before I get too cheesy I’m going to sign off!
