3 Things I am Thankful For

1. My Boyfriend. He has designed my business cards and has promised to teach me photoshop. I am lucky and so thankful that he is amazingly supportive.

2. Autum. There is a chill in the air and I dont want it to leave. I am so much more comfortable in the cooler seasons…plus, the fashions are much more chic!

3. My friends. Its true that they say, ‘friends are the family you get to choose’ and when push comes to shove… I have truly beautiful friends!

What are you thankful for??

Ive been doing a lot of reading on how to build and keep a relationship strong/fun/solid/exciting/honest. There are so many interesting and funny sites where people have shared real advice and I feel as though Ive learnt a lot already. I stumbled across a married man by the name of ‘M’..his blog keeps me in stitches as I read through the ups, downs and in-betweens of his 3 year marriage. He writes that there are 5 things that women need to hear to fall and stay in love (when I read the title, I secretly changed the idea that a man has finally figured women out).

1. I think you’re beautiful
2. I’m listening
3. It’s going to be alright
4. What can I do to help

5. I love you

I swear that my jaw fell to the ground… how spot on is he! Crazy!

So I pose this question to you, my faithful readers, give me your tips on how to keep a relationship strong/fun/solid/exciting/honest!!!!
