Day 2674 - The Lovin Life Linky - One-on-One time

This week I'm lovin' the power of two.


There are times in our lives when lots feels fantastic, then other times when less is more.

This week I'm lovin' the moments that allow for one-on-one time. Two people together without the rest of the world involved.

Those moments may not always be under the most joyous of circumstances, but the fact that we can build relationships and show support individually is something to be grateful for.

When my husband attends his eldest daughter's oncology and surgeon appointments to hold her hand as she tackles her fourth sarcoma in three years.  One-on-one.

When my son gets the opportunity to have individual sessions with a visiting overseas coach to help boost his confidence and regain enthusiasm for the sport he loves. One-on-one.

When I have morning tea with a friend whose dad was taken from her unexpectedly by a heart attack and chat about his legacy and the memories he left behind.  One-on-one.

When I am in a car with my daughter for seven hours as we take yet another day trip to Sydney and back for her modelling commitments.  One-on-One.

When my bestie and I leave each other long detailed voice messages about our day, making it feel like the distance between Australia and the USA is not so huge.  One-on-one.

When a fellow football club committee member and I get to travel to the monthly executive meeting together and prepare on the way there, then debrief on the car ride home.  One-on-one.



It's been a pretty intense week if the truth be known.  The fact that my magazine is being launched this Saturday and I haven't quite finished with the technical side of things, doesn't help.  But what does help is our ability for some one-on-one.

This week I've been lovin' the power of two.

What about you? Have you had some one-on-one time?

What are you lovin' about life this week?

  1. I totally agree Leanne. I enjoy spending time one-on-one with each of our children, and try to make time to do this regularly (even if it's in the car!). I crave one-on-one time with my bestie - it's long overdue #callingnow

  2. I think one-on-one is very important - it's also very hard to do a lot of the time....

  3. Best of luck with the magazine launch this weekend, Leanne.

    I agree, one on one time is so precious, healing and uplifting. It's been a crazy week here too and it's meant to much to have time out with my special people.

  4. Congratulations! your own magazine what an achievement. I'm sure all will go well Leanne. Where can we read it? I love your post and I enjoy one-on-ones as well. Especially with my darling grandson who is almost 3. I mind him each Wednesday and we discover life together through his eyes - just the two of us. Have a great week and good luck with the launch.

  5. Can't wait for the magazine launch and it sounds like you have been busy! I've lost my 'enthusiasm for life' mojo over the past few weeks but am hoping it's starting to come back. But agree one-on-one time is a lovely thing. Or just personal contact with those who nourish you... xx

  6. Best of luck with the magazine! Sounds like it's been a bit of a rough week over there. I hope next week settles down for you xx

  7. Oh yes, I love one on one time with my family and friends. I was very fortunate to have one on one time with my daughter last night in Brisbane. She shouted me dinner, a bottle of wine and a ticket to see Matilda the show. We then spent the night together in a hotel in Brisbane. It was real quality one on one time. :)

  8. I love car trips to and from training with my don to discover what's been happening in his life that day! It really is great one on one time!

  9. All I have these days is ONE on ONE ....with my lovely husband. It's an interesting shift for me because I have always been busy with others in the years gone by. This living away from where we knew people and had family needing us is giving us much-neede re-connection time that we never really had before. I am so sorry to read about your husband's daughter. This is horrid new. You juggle so much Leanne, and I wish you well. A HUGE week alright..go as gently as you can. Denyse x

  10. Yep. You can't put a value on one-on-one time, especially where family is concerned. I don't do it often enough and it's time I stopped carrying the guilt around and made it more of a priority. I loved reading about your precious moments. Just priceless, thank you. x

  11. Have been thinking about you and your step daughter. Hoping that treatment is working.

    I haven't been having nearly enough one on one time with hubby, now that he has returned from his latest trip to sea. Trying to change that but life and three teen daughters seem to get in the way.

  12. Wow you are cray-cray busy at the moment! One on one time is so special - I love catching up with the hubster over a cup of tea when he gets home from work. Trouble is, Mr 22 is still on uni holidays and he has been gatecrashing and dominating that time. While I love our son dearly, I am missing that quality time and de-brief of the day with my hubster. I can't get a word in edgeways!

  13. Can't wait for the magazine launch - you are an inspiring lady - so much going on and yet so much time created for what's important too. Yes, totally agree that one on one time is special and necessary, and should be acknowledged as a moment to treasure and be grateful for.

  14. Yes that one on one time really replenishes the soul. I need to make some time to have some one on one with each of my kids, they benefit as much as I do x

  15. Wow..what a week for you, Leanne!! Good luck with it all!
    It's funny because I was an only child growing up, yet I enjoy being with another more than anything---that one on one speaks to me totally!

  16. I love one on one - to me it's the best connection - total focus, less distractions and much deeper. I hope your week comes to a great end and the magazine is all you hoped it would be x

  17. Nothing like one on one for sure! I've had lots of that lately - one on one with my recently divorced sister who lived with me (and her kids) for 3 weeks; one on one time with my niece as I drove her to school or to co-curricular dance classes; one on one with my nephew as I kept watch on him as he swam in my pool. These are all moments that become wonderful memories! :-) #TeamLovinLife

  18. I like one-on-oneing - sometimes it's tempting to cram as many people into a catch up as possible to maximise social efficiencies but the one on one is a special time.

  19. I definitely appreciate and am grateful from r any one on one time I have with the kids, in fact it doesn't happen enough.

  20. I would love some one on one time with my hubby this Valentine's Day, but at this stage I think it might be dinner out for three! (with our son I mean; we are not having a sexy threesome, just thought I'd clear that up LOLOL).

  21. You know, I've had some one-on-one time this week. With me! And it was wonderful! #LovinLifeLinky

  22. The car is one of the best places for one-on-one time.
    I didn't know you had a linkup going. I've added a cake recipe. (I love cakes!)
