So today is the last day of the Intimacy Experiment, and while some of you will rejoice with joy that it’s over (and seriously – did you think that I could just, I don’t know, ‘end’ the experiment six days in just because you didn’t like it? LOLZ), some of you – namely those of you who are keen to win super awesome stuff from K-Y – will probably lament this brief, but sweet, segment that was hosted by K-Y on our site.
Today’s activities generated a lot of reflecting on the past ten days and allowed us to incorporate everything that we learned over the past week and a half about ourselves, our relationship, and the things that we’d forgotten in our six-plus year journey, and to allow ourselves focus on the areas that we need to further cultivate.
My husband and I decided, after looking at the notes we’d made over the past ten days, that there was one major thing that that we wanted to incorporate together into our everyday lives: doing one thing a week that’s ‘out of the ordinary.’ Our weeks kind of transition easily one to the next, and a lot of times, they look the same. School, work, cook, clean, relax, run errands, take care of the family – lather, rinse, repeat. It’s great to settle into a routine, especially if you’re like me and derive comfort from the familiar, but we had a lot of fun doing spur-of-the-moment things that we wouldn’t have given a second thought to otherwise if it weren’t for the experiment.
If you’ve been following the experiment all along, what have you guys decided to do in your relationships to better them in the ways that you can?
Don’t forget, the experiment can be taken for free starting tomorrow (check out K-Y’s Facebook page, Couples Place, for information on how to download the manual) and also, today’s the last day for you to enter to win a kit of goodies for yourself, too! Leave it in the comments! Two winners will be chosen this week!
I wrote this posting while participating in a blog campaign on behalf of K-Y® Brand and also received product samples to help facilitate my review. In addition, K-Y® Brand sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
