When was the last time you walked up to your man and hugged him? I mean a really good, long, strong, squeeze. A tight hug that made him feel like the most loved and adored man on Earth.
Do this today and let me know his response and reaction.
Here's mine..... My tight squeeze for HubbyHubby was in the morning, and I caught him off guard. It was great. I felt his strong muscular arms squeeze me right back. Then I relaxed my squeeze and melted into his arms. We stood in the kitchen while the rest of the world buzzed with the hustle and bustle of getting ready for the day ahead.
Ahhhhh, what a wonderful way to start the day.
How often do you squeeze your man?
Put this at the top of your "things-to-do list" and enjoy the benefits. Wink, wink.
There's a lot of research about the happy chemicals released in your brain from a good hug. But instead of looking all that stuff up, use that computer time to squeeze your man.

At the dinner table last night, there was lots of conversation about the happenings of the day. At one point something made HubbyHubby smile. His smile lit up his face and his eyes gleamed. It was so beautiful.
Now, HubbyHubby is the happiest man on earth. He is full of joy all the time. Therefore he smiles a lot.
However, this one smile caught my attention, and I said, "You have the most handsome smile."
Well, you would have thought I gave him a zillion dollars! He said, "Wow. That is so sweet of you. You haven't said that in a long time."
Hm. Note to self.
So, let me ask you: What compliment can you give your hubby to make him smile, to lighten his load, to brighten his day?
A compliment that's related to his masculinity or his handsomeness is sure to make him feel like he's king of the world.
If you have a hubby journal, start a page that lists all the things you love about your man.
Give your hubby compliments this week, and let me know his reaction.
If you make it part of your everyday life and conversation, your man will feel like a king.
Treat your traveling husband like a king.
Today, I learned about husbands who travel. Three wives told me what it's like to have a traveling husband, how they deal with it, how they survive, what works and what doesn't work.
Wife # 1 said that part of her husband's work requires him to attend really great parties and hang out with celebrities while she holds down the fort at home.
Wife # 2 said her husband calls her, tells her what a tough day he's had and that he's going to "stay in tonight and order room service." He spends the night sitting in a luxurious hotel room watching whatever he likes on the big screen TV, while wife holds down the fort at home with 3 kids, laundry and soccer car pooling like mad.
Wife #3 said her husband "throws a wrench into things" when he comes home. Her schedule and groove was all set and when hubby comes home she actually thinks, "Argh. When are you leaving again?"
When spouses travel (husband or wife), it can put stress on the marriage.
How can we treat our traveling hubby like a king?
Here are a few ideas on how to treat your traveling Hubby like a king.
When I asked my girl friends, "Where would their husband rather be? Home with you and the kids, or on the road?" The immediate and common response (even before I could finish my question) was "at home with the family."
Ah, yes. And there's the heart of our wonderful husbands.
Are they out with a sword sleighing dragons for us? No. Not literally.
Are they in the wilderness with a bow and arrow, hunting and bringing home a kill for dinner? No.
Are they at war fighting a battle to save your home and property? No.
But they are out, on the road for one main reason. One main purpose. To provide and take care of you. You. And the family. Men live to provide and protect. Read The King's Guide for details.
So, when your Hubby comes home, celebrate his return with his favorite things on the planet:
How do you treat your traveling hubby like a king?
Have you ever been out with your Hubby only to catch him turning his head to look at another woman?
How does that make you feel?
Yep. I understand. So, here's something to think about: Be that woman he's looking at. Be her. What happens if you dress to catch his eye. Dress to turn his head to you. Dress to get his attention.
Why? Because men are visual.
What are you wearing right now? Look down at your outfit. What do you have on?
Do you know what your husband likes to look at? Do you know what he likes to see you in?
This week, plan some time to sit down with your Hubby. Make him his favorite drink (coffee, beer, lemonade, bourbon, etc.), and show him some fashion magazines, store catalogues, or outfits on the web.
Ask him what he likes. Ask. Don't take too long though. Just 5 minutes.
I have two favorite places where I love to shop. When those catalogs show up in the mail, I flip through with HubbyHubby, and he tells me what he likes. Lead him on with, "Hm. That's nice." Or, "Hm, she's looks cute in that. Yes?"
Within time and budget, I order or buy those outfits. Then--and this is HubbyHubby's favorite part--after the kids are in bed, I put on a fashion show for him. I make sure he sits where he can catch a glimpse of me changing. It's a fun little special time for us together, and now I'm his "head-turner."
Each week, plan your outfits so that your appearance is well kept.
No time? Make time. Remember, men are visual. What you wear is important to your Hubby.
