December is coming around and so are the holidays. Here are some great ideas to keeping your relationship spicy and hot while its cold outside.

1. Ice Skating & Hot Chocolate

It's so cold outside and after a nice time ice skating with your boo thing, grab some hot chocolate and warm up. Ice skating is the perfect time to see if your baby's got you. Literally, if he's there for you when you fall.

2. Fireplace & Smores/Indoor Picnics

Nothing beats sitting by the fireplace and spending some quality time while making smores. Yummy! That sounds delicious as it is. But we don't have to just eat smores. How about a romantic picnic at the comfort of your home around the fireplace? You don't have to go outside for a picnic! Food for thought?

3. Tree Decorating & Holiday Music

You can't not decorating a Christmas tree with your significant other. Tree decorating gets you in the Christmas spirit. What comes after the tree is Christmas music, so it's time to get in the Christmas spirit. Also, holiday music just adds a little jazz. For example, "Baby, It's Cold Outside."

4. See The Lights

Go see the lights. They're always beautiful and it's always a great time to see them with someone you care significantly about. It will be cold if you plan to walk around, but you be my guest. It can be a bonding time while you walk. Just make sure to pack some gloves and a hefty jacket. But I am sure you can drive through certain neighborhoods in your car.

5. Christmas Movies & Chill

There are so many Christmas movies out there and Netflix always has some available. Now, my favorite would have to be the new one out, "Princess Switches" or, "The Nightmare Before Christmas." There is nothing better than just relaxing in your own home and just chilling with the one you love.

Your son and I have been dating a while now and I just wanted to thank you for everything.

Wow, where do I start? Ever since the day your son brought me into your home you have shown me nothing but kindness. I have not one negative thought about you and I am truly thankful for that. I first and foremost want to thank you for welcoming me with open arms. There are horror stories of mothers resenting their son's girlfriends and I am blessed there is no resentment or harsh feelings.

Thank you for treating me like one of your children, with so much love but knowing exactly when to tease me.

Thank you for sticking up for me when your son teases me, even though I know it’s all in good fun it's always comforting knowing you have someone by your side.

Thank you for raising a man who respects women and knows how to take responsibility of mistakes and not a boy who is immature and doesn’t take responsibility.

Thank you for always including me in family affairs, I may not be blood family but you do everything you can to make sure I feel like I am.

Thank you for letting me make memories with your family.

There is nothing I value more in this world then memories with friends and family and I am thankful you want and are willing to include me in yours. I have so much to thank you for my thoughts keep running together.

The most important thing I have to thank you for is for trusting me with your son. I know how precious and valuable he is and I won't break his heart. I will do everything I can to make him happy. This means more than you could ever imagine and I promise I will never break your trust.

The second most important thing I must thank you for is for accepting me for who I am. Never have you ever wished I looked like another girl or acted like another girl. You simply love and care for me and that’s all I could ever ask. Every person in this world is a unique different person and understanding that means a lot.

The third most important thing I must thank you is teaching me how to one day in the future treat a potential girlfriend that I may interact with as a mother. I am not a mother, but I one day plan to be. If I ever have a son it is because of how you treated me that I am able to be a humble loving mother to this new face that could one day walk into my door. How you have treated me has taught me how I should one day be in the future and I thank you for that.

This may seem all over the place but that’s how my brain gets when I try and thank you for everything you have done for me. It’s all so much and even the little things are so important so I promise my scattered thoughts are all with good intentions and not meant to bombard you. I just want to get the idea across to you that you are important and special to me and everything you do does not go unnoticed.

Sincerely,

Your Son’s Girlfriend

New Year, new me.

The phrase that keeps popping up everywhere. New Year's resolutions are cliché, yet they give off the allusion of new hope for the year to come, for the person you'll be. For me, I have been trying to be someone who I'm not for 21 years. I try so hard to please everyone and yet, the only person who I don't please is myself.

The summer of 2017 I got my very first tattoo: "For you, a thousand times over". The quote is from Khaled Hosseini's "The Kite Runner". For me, the quote is a promise to always put myself first. Unfortunately, there have been so many times where I have found myself feeling on the back burner in most of the relationships I've had; whether that's been with my family, friends, or even romantically. I always try to go above and beyond to have these connections with people, who never seem to put anything back into those relationships. For the longest time I questioned what I was doing wrong, or why I wasn't enough for them. I would constantly be the first to call, text, make plans,; anything to feel affection. I have not been keeping that promise I made to myself at all. It wasn't until one day that i have my "Ah-Ha" moment:

I AM ENOUGH.

I am tired of letting other people's actions dictate my feelings. I am the only one who can control my feelings and how I react to other people's actions. I don't need these one handed relationships to feel happiness or even joy in my life. So, is it selfish to stop being the first person to reach out? I don't think so. I feel that healthy distance in life will show people's true colors. Some people will try to make it your fault that the reason you don't text each other is because you do not text them first.

THOSE PEOPLE ARE NOT WORTH IT IN YOUR LIFE.

Don't let others stifle your happiness. If someone is not contributing to your growth and success, then they are not worth your time or energy. Be selfish in life. It's ok, I promise.
