What a week its been! We have had a house full of little people playing, running, laughing, crying, cuddling, swimming, whining and loving. But in the midst of the noise we’ve managed to keep our bedroom free from the mess and quite the haven of much needed rest. It has reminded me just how important it is to have a place like this when you’re busy raising a family. Children demand our attention. It is a 24/7 job with little to no breaks. Having a romantic space free from clutter and distractions aids in helping both parents relax at the end of a long, hard day, and most importantly helps to keep those home fires burning a.k.a. Sizzle!
This leads us to our final challenge.
Day Five – The Letter “E”
It’s time to ENJOY your space. Today is the day to finish all the work you’ve begun this week. Once you’ve finished it all – spend an hour vacuuming, dusting and straightening your knick knacks. Next, buy or make a card for your spouse inviting them to a special Evening to Enjoy your space together one night this next week. If you have the room why not set up a table and have dinner or dessert by candlelight with soft music in the background? If space is limited spread a nice tablecloth on your bed and enjoy a picnic of finger foods you both love. Don’t forget to use your special lighting to create the right mood. Below is a photograph we found that would work on any dresser.
You’ve worked so hard to do this project be sure to make a big deal of the reveal to your spouse. You may want to wrap your bedroom door with a large bow along with a romantic card. Play it up big! After all this is the moment you’ve been waiting for! Enjoy it! Oh, and don’t forget to have the music playing as they open the door! This is the best part of taking on a project like this – the results!
You’ve managed to complete a worthwhile project. Congratulations on adding Sizzle to your Space in less than a week. As a special treat, buy yourself a bouquet of your favorite flowers to add the finishing touch.
Thanks for taking part! We pray you’ll have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!
