Hey there!

I have been speaking about some very serious topics for the past weeks but today it is about fun and food! I absolutely have a passion for food. I live to cook and learn new dishes to present to my husband and family. Food has been a passion of mine since I was a very little girl. Cooking is a place where my creative juices flow. And my dearest loves this!

We are both what they would call today, “foodies”. I am not really sure what that expression encompasses but I know this, Ray loves to eat. I love to eat. I love to cook! We both have a passion for food from all over the world and if I haven’t made it before, we seek it out. He is absolutely fascinated by the fact that I can taste a dish and create the same dish at home. On rare occasions, I don’t get it right away but I keep at it until I do.

You might be wondering why I share this with you in a relationship blog. It is one of the most fabulous feelings in the world when your partner shares a passion with you. That cannot be replaced. If you and your partner do not share a passion together, then you can take steps to remedy that. There should always be something that you can share and talk about with joy. So if you do not, you might ask how you can do that.

A very long time ago I had two friends that were married. She called me and told me that she and her husband had nothing in common. I went to visit her and her husband was at home. I asked him to sit for a minute and we got around to this discussion. He told me that it was true that they didn’t have anything but the kids in common. I said, “What a load of bull****!” They were both shocked. I then said, “Either you were both lying then or you are both lying now!” I asked them to tell me about their favorite things. They were both really mad at me. My girlfriend didn’t talk to me for a week and then….I got the call. First, she told me that they both were angry at first with me. Then they really started talking. Then, she thanked me. They had forgotten all of the wonderful commonalities that brought them together.

If you believe that you and your partner have drifted apart then it is your responsibility to reconnect. If your wife is an avid golfer then take interest and maybe even go play a game or two. If your husband loves football, then watch the game with him and get excited when he gets excited. Make an effort and soon you will find that you will rediscover each other!

Get your passion back!
