31 Days of Femininity: A lesson in femininity
My Husband and I on our wedding!
Wednesday was our nine year wedding anniversary. Life has been so hectic lately, with my husband in college full time that we haven't had much time for ourselves. He had a final test that night for an 8 week class, but we decided to go out for dinner after his test was over.
I was busy all day frantically trying to finish getting some new products up at The Modest Mom and keep the children happy and in order. Early afternoon came-and I still wasn't dressed for the day! I needed to take a shower and I had been putting it off to get work done.
Finally I got my shower in, and was dressed right when my husband came home around 2:00. He had to study all afternoon for his test. I went and did some housework, planning on letting my hair dry a bit and then curl it. What I didn't plan on was that he was going to enlist my help for his homework study. I really wanted to look nice for him, so I quickly dried my hair and plugged in my curlers set - which is amazing as they only take 2 minutes to heat up. Perfect for the busy mom!
It took 30 minutes, but I blow dried my hair, put my hair up in curlers, and put on some makeup and jewelry that I knew he liked, and a splash of perfume. While I let my hair set in curlers, I helped him with the homework.
The effort was worth it. My husband's eyes lit up when he saw me, and he couldn't stop complimenting me all night. I was humbled as a wife. If 30 minutes is all it takes to create a look that keeps my husband looking at me as if I was his new bride again, why don't I apply myself more often to do it?
I'm not saying the only way to get your husband's attention is to do what I just outlined above. That is what my husband prefers, but my sister's husband does not like how jewelry looks on her, and doesn't prefer makeup either. Every husband is different-but there surely is something special you can do for your husband.
Once again I was reminded-a feminine woman strives to make herself look feminine!
