The definition of Joy is a feeling of great pleasure and happiness.
This is what I feel every time I get the chance to be with my partner during the weekend (and sometimes during the week). Today was a day where it was joy by over 9000. I love seeing people receive things that I got for them. As my love language is drawn to gifting and quality time.
Our anniversary was on the 19th of February. We even have the date saved on good drive, just in case. #riskmanagement and I didn't get her anything as it was still coming through in the mail. The thing I love about her is that she's understanding, she could of gotten mad because I didn't have anything for her but she didn't.
Today was the day, the day I planned something as the gift for her arrived on Monday. We went over to our parents place and while she was cooking dinner, I planned a little tressure hunt of clues scattered around the house, but in specific spots, memories that we had in last year. There was a total of 8 clues and a gift at the end, something she wanted back in 2020 - and a deeper meaning full reason to the clue game but I walked her through when we went back to my car.
With my partner and I we tend to not follow the norm, such as valentines for example. We have a credit card together, even though we don't live in the same roof. We work on our businesses when we are together. We don't fancy materialistic things as giving each other expensive gifts. We manifest a lot of things quite often.
What makes our relationship strong is two things:
Understanding and communication. These are the two important things that I feel if you build off those two as a strong foundation then the chances of breaking up is slim.
