25 in 2010: Book 8

I was on a reading roll this past Memorial Day Weekend and managed to also finish The 5 Love Languages.

I've really been into self-improvement/self-help books lately as I'm naturally an introspective person, always striving to be the best I can be and make the most out of my life.  David and I are coming up on our 5th wedding anniversary so, I've really been into those books that are focused on marriage and family.

The 5 Love Languages was really great, I enjoyed it and actually learned some things!

If someone had told me about the premise of this book, I probably could have figured out my and David's love language on my own as we've talked about what we need, want & expect from each other since the very beginning of our relationship nearly 7 years ago; however, seeing it in print and reading examples of each language further convinced me of what I already knew.  I do recommend this book as 1) it's short, direct, and very interesting and because 2) it's a great way to reconnect with your spouse as people's love language can change over time with age & maturity.  I think it's really important to examine your marriage from time to time, give it a tune-up, and ensure you and your spouse still have similar goals and this book is great for that as it really does give you the gift of knowing what your spouse needs most from you!
