written by Gary Chapman, states that if you don’t understand your partner’s ‘love language’, then their love might go overlooked. By recognizing which love languages a person speaks, your appreciation and love for them can grow.

The five love languages are words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch. Most people use a few of these to express their love for someone. Personally, my love languages are quality time and physical touch.

If you’ve met someone who speaks the same love languages as you, you’re lucky. Hold on to that one. The reality is that it doesn’t come that easy for most couples, but if you can understand which love languages your partner expresses, then you’ll be able to recognize when they are trying to show their love for you.

I’ve taken this into account with recent relationships I’ve had. For example, my boyfriend is not a big fan of physical touch in public, whereas I am. However, I’ve become OK with that because I know that he speaks a different love language. He uses acts of service to show me he cares, and I’ve got to say, I think I can give up hand-holding forever if I he continues to cook dinner for me every night.

Without knowing what love language your lover speaks, you could discount their love for you. This is part of maintaining a healthy, strong relationship that will withstand the test of time.

Souled Out: The Dream Factory

Sparking dreams and igniting the crowd, Teton Gravity Productions new film, “The Dream Factory,” had the crowd on their feet with wintery anticipation. Highlighting America’s last frontier, Alaska’s true beauty was brought to life throughout the film.

The mystical awe of Alaska has lured pioneers for thousands of years. With not a soul insight, the message seems to be that the glory is not the gold, but rather the finding of the gold, and that’s exactly what Teton productions achieved.

Chuck McMahan, a true pioneer in unbridled exploration was responsible for the first ski airplane ride. Back in the eighties, when a helicopter ride was the price of a latte, $5, he helped pave the way for what lies just beyond the boundaries.

Limited only by their imaginations, Dream Factory successfully touched upon the progression the ski industry has undergone.

The riders’ ability to stand where no one has ever stood and to ski where no one has ever skied is a reality few people actually achieve in their lifetimes.

The attention to detail and story-like narrative has me convinced that everyone should partake in the unmatchable experience of solitude that Alaska has to offer.

One thing I did find puzzling was the lack of ladies with Angel Collinson being the only female featured.

Regardless, the snow-goers in this film show you what it means to be dedicated to pursuing the best days you can think of in an annual migration to Alaska.

The soundtrack left me longing in anticipation to hit the slopes. Leaving me wanting more, I give this film an A+ for electrifying the crowd.

If you’re looking to get gassed for the season, I definitely recommend this one.
