35. Homemade pizza – things for couples to do at home
Now, this is one of my top favourite things to do with my man. I even prepare the dough myself while he’s cutting the toppings. Then we arrange the pizza and impatiently wait for it to bake. It usually disappears in less than 10 minutes after we take it out of the oven. It’s always worth the wait.

Use the time you have together to get to know each other even better. Talk about your love languages. Get Gary Chapman’s book and share with your loved one how you want him to love you. Ask him how he likes you to express your love for him too. Here’s my review of the book.
