I have a challenge for you. An invitation.
In my marriage, I've learned to be thoughtful about the ways I spend money. Just buying a shirt because I see it and it's cute, and it's on sale, isn't wise.
Choosing what's wise isn't
I've acted like a child at times and wanted what I've seen.
And so, what I wear today is classy, simple, professional, and in total under $50...
Except for two things.
Objects that I'm wearing that you can't see combine in total, costing much more than my entire outfit.
A store I swore I'd never shop in because of the high cost and the marketing of sex appeal, found me in it. And I spent a pretty penny.
For my marriage.
Sure, sex alone won't save my marriage. And nor will pretty panties.
But, I gave it a shot.
I thought about how maybe Victoria's *secret* is for Marriages.
Maybe I'll gain a perspective I hadn't considered.
Maybe this really can be worship.
So, I did. His Christmas gift and one week later his anniversary gift, they were twice packaged in pretty pink bags. The gifts were for us.
I liked my choice.
I feel pretty. And, he thinks so, too.
(One of the best compliments is when my groom suggested I look better than the models in the flier that appeared in my mailbox for the exact thing I bought us.)
He watches me dress in the morning and I allude to what I hope will come later on when the *whirl and twirl* of the day has neared its end.
All day long, what I chose to wear is a reminder to me of the investment I am making in my marriage.
It's an accountability partner of sorts to save some energy for him and not give it all away.
I remember to make him and us a priority.
It's personal. It's private. It's pretty.
Most especially, it's a perspective I'd never considered before.
Our closeness, connectedness and communication has all strengthened because of our choice for intimate.
Do something that you never imagined you'd do.
See a different perspective.
Live your story with purpose.
