Kiss, Kiss...


Have you ever noticed that a lot of people stop kissing? You don't realize this occurs as often as it does until you are at a 25th anniversary or a wedding. People start tinkling the glasses and calling people out to kiss each other in front of 175 people. The couple (victims) look nervously at each other and at that point everyone should get a clue that they are thinking oh man...haven't done this in nine years and now we get to in front of all these friends and family, lucky us! And as soon as they do, everyone claps politely, giggles nervously and thinks to themselves "note to self...go home and kiss husband repeatedly so that is never us". Because that just looked as natural/comfortable as arriving to this event, being handed a leotard and asked to do the gymnastics routine that I haven't performed since I was eight years old!
Kissing keeps us young. Keeps our relationships young. I love that my whole family is "huggy and kissy". I'm not suggesting this has to be done in a public forum. I just think that it's one of those things that couples can do to keep love alive and intimacy in the relationship. So don't become a casualty of K.K.S (kept kisses syndrome...so cheesy I know) lay one on your sweety tonight!



Idea #7
I so wish I had my computer. Soon I will, and then I will post some pics. Complete with kissy shots (from my birthday). I think a romantic idea would be to take kissing pics whenever you travel new places, or have date nights or even just one on each anniversary (even that will help you not become that couple). If you think people don't do this...post on Ross and Taya's facebook page asking for pictures to be posted and I'm sure they will oblige since they have 10 years of kissy face pics to prove they do!! Mom reminded me the other night of a good idea. Put on some lipstick and kiss the bathroom mirror and write a "good morning message" in lipstick. So cute mom!

That is a good idea! though, I don't use very much lipstick, I wonder if lipgloss would work.hmmmmmm....

I am so with you on the kissing, unfortunately, my husband isn't as affectionate as I am, but he's coming around. It was really sad when we were first married, because his family was not affectionate AT ALL. He has changed though and we cuddle lots,but not as much kissing as I would like. (He knows that..trust me ha ha)

Ah...the joy of a simple kiss (or a hug);and although some children may make comments like "oh gross..." when they see their parents kissing, I know deep down that a sense of security comes from witnessing those signs of affection. I have enjoyed 53 years of my mom and dad's kisses in their 60 years of marriage and whenever I saw it then and see it now I think..."the world is good". Love you...kiss, kiss, kisses to all of you!

Woohoo! We just uploaded a few of our kissin pictures to picasa: http://picasaweb.google.com/rossandtaya/KissMe. and we'll keep adding to it over the years. Taya has written notes on the bathroom mirror for me. I once tried to reply using chapstick- not quite the same effect :).
