First Things First Giveaway

hdr-logo-001

First Things First (FTF) is an award winning not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

FTF is a resource that collaborates with and is supported by a broad cross-section of community organizations, groups and individuals.

FTF accomplishes it mission through meaningful media messaging and skill building classes.

One of the lessons First Things First teaches you is to date your spouse. I think this is something everyone should do. I’m in a new relationship. I’m in the stage where I get butterflies just thinking of him, I love spending time with him just talking and being goofy. Everyone knows how much fun the beginning of a relationship is.Ā 

One of my close online friends has been married for years. When I talk to her about my new relationship, she says she misses this stage. It made me stop to think, Why does it this have to be a stage to miss? Why can’t we always “date” our spouse or significant other? I think this is why a lot of relationships/marriages end. You get comfortable and stop doing the little things (and big things) you did in the beginning of a relationship that made you guys fall for each other in the first place.

Date nights are important in a relationship. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant. The important aspect is to spend time together as a couple and talk. Talk about the same things you did when you started to date. Don’t talk about:

Bills

Kids

The house

Chores etc.

You get the point. Just have fun and be silly.Ā 

Right now you can enter a giveaway sponsored by First Things First. You can win his/hers MoonPie t-shirts and 2 boxes of single decker moonpies. This would be a perfect date night. You can wear your shirts together and talk while eating yummy moonpies!Ā 

Each household is only eligible to win One (1) First Things First Moon Pie Prize Pack via blog reviews and giveaways. Only one entrant per mailing address per giveaway. If you have won the same prize on another blog, you will not be eligible to win it again. Winner is subject to eligibility verification.
