Weekly Mini Challenge / 02 Recap

The City and Us | Weekly Mini Challenge / 02 Recap

The second Weekly Mini Challenge was to say “I love you” without saying a word, think: leaving little love notes around the house, having a glass of wine ready after a long day at work, and putting toothpaste on his/her toothbrush and leaving it lying on the sink before bed.

We had two lazy weekend mornings of coffee and breakfast in bed–the best way to spend a weekend morning, and during the week, I did a boring errand and bought deodorant on my way home from work. If you’re playing along, how’d you do? Did you learn anything interesting?

The thing I remember most from this challenge is something that Dan did for me after a tough day at work. I was drained, so instead of my usual after-work run I planned to go home and turn my brain off, maybe watch some mindless TV and just chill. When I walked through the door, a bottle of my favorite red wine, crackers and hummus were waiting. It was just what I needed because instead of sinking into the couch and sulking for the night, we hung out in the kitchen and chatted, which instantly put me in a better mood.

What did you do to say “I love you” without saying a word? Leave your update in the comment section, if you’d like. I’d love to hear.

And check back on Thursday for the third installment of the Weekly Mini Challenge.
