I read in a book recently that you can tell how healthy your marriage is by how much you KISS! I was intrigued by this so I continued to read that you really need to have 3 passionate kisses a day.
Well, when I read "passionate kisses" I thought. Woah! 3 is alot. When I think of a "passionate kiss" I think 2-3 minutes. Well, it actually meant you need to hold the kiss for a few SECONDS not MINUTES! I started laughing at myself. I was picturing having to stop and have long make out sessions while I'm trying to cook dinner.
I've learned the difference in kissing my husband good-bye in the morning with feeling and passion behind it, instead of just a peck. And the same thing goes for when he comes home at the end of the day. Now, I don't time myself...(example...HOLD, HOLD, HOLD, okay...CUT! ha ha!) But I make sure I've planted a good one on my hubby and that we feel something behind it.
I'm not gonna lie to you, there are occasions where it would be easier to go through the motions, get the peck out of the way and move along. But, when I take the time and effort (which isn't asking a lot by the way, a few seconds here) to kiss my man, it gives us a moment of connectedness. So much is said in that moment even if no words are spoken.
Alright, so here's my challenge to you: PUCKER UP LADIES!!! Until next week, give this a try. See what happens. Does it become less routine and more passionate? I know it has helped in my home!
Now, what kind of friend would I be if I didn't recommend some GREAT lip gloss for your homework. It just might give you the boost you need to get KISSING! Here's some of my favorites:Beauty Rush from Victoria's Secret. This stuff smells so yummy. A good sweet tasting flavor is "I Want Candy".
Bath & Body Works sells this tinted gloss in different flavors. The MINT is so crisp and gives you a really fresh and cool feeling. Mmmm, I LOVE this one!
And there's the old standby. Any old chapstick will do just fine. Whatever you have lying around. This Classic Cherry Chapstick takes me back to my childhood. I was obsessed with this stuff.
