Don’t Forget To Appreciate Your Significant Other

He’s in the kitchen making dinner as I sit down and relax after a long day at work.

I look at him as he’s flipping the turkey burgers and making sure our sweet potato fries don’t burn. He’s attentively looking at the burgers to see if they’re done.

As he pulls the fries out of the oven, I get up to put a sweatshirt on because I know dinner is almost ready and I’m cold.

While in our room, I peer out the door and see him standing in the kitchen plating our dinner.

This brings me back to the time I watched him flip strawberry pancakes at my house after he slept over for the first time. He made them for my mom and I and we both thought they were delicious!

I’m brought back to reality when I see him smile at me and hold up the burgers for us to devour.

I smile back and then face the closest mirror we have examining myself.

Tears begin to roll down my face because I forget to appreciate the small things he does for me. He makes dinner every night because he knows I’m too tired.

He’s trying to start his own business, but it’s taking longer than he thought.

He looks for reassurance from me and asks my opinion on his logo, how his business plan looks and whether or not he should tint his windows so no one can see his tools.

I forget to appreciate him when he runs errands for me. I forget to appreciate him when he wants to hug or kiss me. I forget to appreciate him when he wakes up at 7:00 a.m. just to make me breakfast.

In general, sometimes, we forget to appreciate our significant others because we’re so busy with life. We don’t take time to really look at what’s in front of us. We’re so bogged down about money, getting ahead, etc, that we neglect our significant other. I am a culprit of that.

And, when my husband tries to nestle his head next to mine, I often push him away because I am not affectionate. But, I need to remember that this is just one of the ways he’s showing me how much he loves me.

My husband could be lying around and not doing anything while I make money, but he’s not lazy. I need to appreciate that at the end of the day one of the most important things to him is making me happy.

“I can never do anything right, can I, Hope?” he asks. My heart stops because I know I’ve been acting like a stuck up snob. And, I know I can do better than that.

At the end of the day, I just need to remember to appreciate him and you must stop and do the same.

15 Things On What Being In Love Means

Love is more than getting a dog and watching Netflix together.

  • While spending time is important, you must also spend time apart so you have a chance to miss your partner.
  • Love means sacrificing what you want to do for what they want to do.
  • Love means buying a gift for them when you see something at the store that reminds you of them.
  • Love means accepting their flaws.
  • Love means supporting them through thick and thin.
  • Love means waiting for their phone call to let you know they got there when they’re out of town.
  • Love means popping their pimples when they ask you to – even if you think it’s gross.
  • Love means waking up before they do and making breakfast.
  • Love means saving the last yogurt for them because you know they love that flavor.
  • Love means giving them a deep tissue massage even if you’re exhausted.
  • Love means communicating, compromising and coming to an agreement for the harder decisions in life.
  • Love means letting her lay on your chest even if you’re physically and mentally drained.
  • Love means planning the wedding she wants instead of what you desire.
  • Love means earning enough funds so you two can move far away because she’s always liked to live in the south.
  • Love means constantly reminding them how much they mean to you, how much you care for them.

There’s more to love than kisses, hugs and sex. It’s not always rainbows and butterflies. It can be hard work, but if you really love each other, it should be a breeze!

#SCBDReview Oliso Smart Vacuum Sealer

OMG, guys. Let me tell you about The Oliso Smart Vacuum Sealer!

Not only does it keep veggies fresh, it’s so simple and easy to use. All you do is crimp the bag shut and slide it up to the machine and voila! It will indicate when it’s done too, which is super convenient!

It comes with a reusable bag and detachable vacuum tube. It’s a great size if you have small kitchen space. It’s 2/3 – ½ the size of a typical vacuum sealer unit.

If you don’t plan on using your mushrooms, parsley and celery, utilize the vacuum sealer to preserve them. The best part about the vacuum is it’s essentially an automatic system.

According to Oliso.com, The Oliso Smart Vacuum Sealer™ contains a commercial-power dual motor system for the best vacuum sealer results. Its revolutionary system uses patented dual-seal Freshkeeper® technology to maximize the freshness of your food storage. Unlike standard vacuum sealers, ours does not require you to cut and make your own bags, but instead uses zip-top bags that can be vacuumed again and again. Instead of vacuuming and sealing an entire side of the bag, the Oliso unit makes a small incision, pulls the air out, and then seals around the incision.

Additionally, the sealer allows you to buy products in bulk, and in turn, save money. Also, why not buy chicken or turkey and do some meal prep? This will save you tons of time and energy.

It’s worth every nickel, dime and penny to buy this product. So, if you’d like more information, please visit Oliso.com today!
