Creating Fun Valentine’s Day Texts for Your Spouse!

It’s amazing what kind of things you can do when you are not glued to social media! The benefits of living unplugged outweigh anything social media can offer you! Here is just another way of “celebrating” being unplugged!

Valentine’s Day is this Friday! Leading up to this big day, there should be love in the air! That’s what this blog post is about today: how to create a little romance leading up to Valentine’s Day! Let’s get started.

I’ve been married just over 16 years to my spouse. In the beginning of our marriage, the romance was alive and thriving! After a few years, it began to die down a bit. We both had sort of found our groove and settled into the relationship. We both began to feel “comfortable”. Romance didn’t seem to be as active as it once was.

Then one day, I discovered a website called “A Wife Like Me“. This is a GREAT website!! Amanda Davison is the CEO of A Wife Like Me, and she truly has a passion to see marriages thrive! She also offers LIVE videos/interviews on Facebook each Thursday evening, where she interviews other women who may have struggled with their marriages and how they turned things around. Or these women may be counselors, or authors, or a housewife who really wanted to share some things that worked for them!

Amanda’s website has offered some awesome tips and has become part of my regular reading each day. Her website has many different bloggers, not just Amanda; each of whom offers a little something different each time. I encourage you to check out the website, if you haven’t already. You will find tons of helpful information there.

Now, let’s get to the main idea for today’s blog. TEXT MESSAGING YOUR SPOUSE! What are some fun ways you have used text messaging to show your love to your spouse? I know there are tons of fun ways, ideas for topics, date night ideas, etc., on the web; and all of these can be incorporated into your texts.

I use text messaging to remind my husband that I am proud of him, love him, and reminders for other things. But, I also use text messaging to send him fun texts, or even a few texts that are meant for only him; if you know what I mean! Texting is also a great way to share date night ideas. If you run across a great idea for a date night, text the link or idea to your spouse, as a reminder. If your man is like my man, sometimes he isn’t very creative when it comes to date night ideas; but a simple text message is a great way to get him started on planning a great date night!

If you are short on ideas of what to actually say in a text, here are a few ideas. Just make sure that when the text arrives, it is seen by HIS eyes only!! You surely don’t want his boss to be standing near when a “naughty” text comes thru, right!!??

Texts To Send to Your Spouse:

  • You will forever be my always
  • I want to slow dance with you
  • I want to cuddle with you tonight
  • I want to give you a very nice, long massage
  • I am so grateful for you
  • I love waking up in the morning with you
  • I love taking showers with you
  • I want you
  • Let’s get naked tonight
  • I shaved my legs just for you tonight
  • I’m so proud of you
  • You make me so happy
  • I love being your wife
  • Let’s get alone tonight
  • You are an amazing provider for our family
  • I miss you when you are away
  • I don’t have any panties on
  • I’ll be waiting for you tonight

You get the idea! Make it fun. Make it suggestive. Make it adorable! It’s all about spontaneity. How can you get him thinking about YOU while he is away? How can you get him thinking about what’s waiting for him at home? How can you get him thinking about how lucky he is to have a wife like you? You see what I mean?

So, this week, leading up to Valentine’s Day, try a little romance via text messaging. Maybe this year you will experience one of the best Valentine’s Day dates you have ever had!

Until next time, Be Blessed!

It’s Valentine’s Week! In today’s blog, I want to offer some fun ways to share a great Valentine’s Day date together for married couples. Whether you have just married, or have been married 50+ years, these tips are for you!

Let’s Have Some Fun:

  • Indoor picnic

These are just a few ideas for Valentine’s Day. There are many more; all you have to do is get creative! It’s all about spending time together — which means, NO KIDS! If you don’t have the money for a babysitter, barter with a friend. Trade babysitting with this friend; you go one night for Valentine’s Day, and your friend goes the next night. Whatever works … just do it!

No matter how many years you have been married, it’s important to keep the romance alive! Life can get way too busy and we soon find ourselves feeling disconnected. It’s not hard to reconnect. Truly, it’s just a matter of wanting to. Open your mind and allow your imagination to run with some fun ideas.

I’d love for you to share your date night ideas in the comment section below. We can always learn from each other.

Until next time, Be Blessed!


Broccoli Cashew Apple Pear Salad

This salad is super easy, and amazingly delicious! I made it for dinner tonight, along with Air Fried Chicken Thighs. Perfect combination. Just look how colorful this is!

Broccoli Cashew Apple Pear Salad

Ingredients for Salad Mix:

  • 5 cups broccoli, florets, chopped into small bites
  • 1 apple, cored and diced
  • 1 pear, cored and diced
  • 1 cup cashews, toasted or roasted
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (I used a mix of cranberries & raisins)

Ingredients for Salad Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup honey, softened or warmed up
  • 1/4 tsp salt


In a large cowl, combine together chopped broccoli, diced apple, diced pear, red onion, cashews, and dried cranberries.

In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, honey, and salt. Note that honey should be soft and runny, warm it up, if needed. Whisk together all ingredients until well combined and smooth. Add salt, if needed. Add dressing to the broccoli salad and stir everything together.

I’d love to see your comments if you ever try this. We loved it! I hope you do too.

Until next time, Be Blessed,
