Being Present With Each Other During the Holidays - Marriage & Relationship Goals {link up}

Last month, I wanted to be intentional with our relationship and to be honest, I didn't really do a great job. I was so busy. I mean, I don't even know where the month went. I spent a week in Georgia for work, we spent a weekend in a cabin at Hocking Hills, we went to my grandmas for 6 days over Thanksgiving, and work was an absolute monster! I don't mean to be making excuses because there is no excuse for neglecting our relationship, but it's hard.

On a positive note, we did have quite a few date nights! We saw Interstellar which was phenomenal! We went shopping for Christmas presents a couple times. And a cabin get away with friends totally counts as a quadruple date!
Anyway, this month I'm not going to set such high standards for my relationship goals. I certainly want to make our marriage a priority, but I don't want to be stressed about it and to let myself down. So my one goal for December is to have at least one date night per week and to enjoy the Christmas season with my sweetheart as much as possible! I am so glad that our Christmas shopping is done and we don't have to worry about that anymore. Now we can enjoy decorating and wrapping presents together. We can drive around enjoying other decorations and listening to Christmas music and just be together and be present in the here and now. That's what I want for December

What are your relationship goals for this month? Do they have to do with the Holiday season like mine? Be sure to link up below!
