The Couples Reading Challenge February Intro

Good afternoon!

IT’S FEBRUARY!! That means one super awesome thing – WEDDING DAY!!!! Steven and I are so excited about our upcoming wedding in TWO AND A HALF WEEKS!! (Are you feeling my excitement!?! :D) With so much going on we’re trying to keep the stress level down and ease into the festivities and just enjoy everything! That being said, the reading challenge is going to be just as difficult this month as it was in January but press on we shall!

February – Marriage/Intimacy

Quite fitting since it’s the month of love and the fact that we’re getting married. We decided it made sense to read a book that focused on this area and get our marriage started off on the right foot.

Our Book Selection: Sheet Music by Dr. Kevin Leman

The subtitle for this book is Uncovering the Secrets of Sexual Intimacy in Marriage. Confession: musician that I am, I was intrigued by the concept of the title and it’s been on my reading list for a few years. I’ve been waiting ’til I got married to read it, so here we are! I recently happened happened upon a used copy for a couple of dollars so I snatched it up and suggested it to Steven as the book for February. After flipping through it, he thought it was a great choice. The only immediate catch is, because we’re not married yet, the author asks engaged couples to read only specific chapters and then finishing the rest after getting married. Should be quite interesting!

Focus Word of the Month: ROMANCE

How could romance not be the focus word of the month? As an engaged couple, we looking forward to the perks of married life, if you know what I mean ;). So romance is definitely high on our list this month and we plan to have lots of fun this month!

Activity of the Month: GAME NIGHT FOR 2

Date night plans!! With our hectic schedules the past few months we haven’t had time for anything other than a couple dinner dates. This month we’re going to try a game night for two! A game night for two can be fun and playful or hot and steamy *blush*. We haven’t talked talked in detail all we’re planning on doing but definitely going to have some game night fun on our honeymoon!

Really looking forward to this month’s challenge! It’s a short month and I know it will be a whirlwind but I’m hoping we get a chance to truly enjoy and soak in all the sweet moments now that we’re finally going to be Mr. & Mrs. 🙂

Happy Reading!
