The Bookstore Date

The "Bookstore" Date you'll both love!

Bookstore Date
"Choose Your Own Adventure" on this memorable date night!

I love, love, love to read!!  So much so, that a particular book was my inspiration for one of my previous dates, the “Choose Your Own Adventure” Date.
My husband, on the other hand, would rather do anything else instead of reading!  Reading is definitely not something he would choose to do for fun.

Most of the dates I have posted so far have been pretty crazy….meaning,...

Love Letters

Love Letters: Spark the romance in your relationship.

My husband has a gift...a truly AMAZING gift that has greatly contributed to our marriage!

He writes the most TOUCHING love letters!!

 
He would laugh if you ever told him that this is one of his gifts...'cuz I have....and he does!  I guess it doesn't really matter if he knows it's a gift, as long as he know how much it means to me.
 
Every holiday, birthday, or special occasion....he asks me, "What would you like me to get you?"
My reply?!?...

All The Single Ladies…

All the single ladies: advice on dating and marriage.

I recently did a guest post on a CUTE blog called, Exposing the Drapes to My 20's.  Jessica is SUCH a doll!!  When she asked us to do something for the "single ladies"....we loved the idea!  Heck, we were ALL single at one point...and some of us were QUITE the playas (sorry....can't tell ya who...) and some of us sure dated the players!!  :)   I then realized that we probably have some *single* readers who would ALSO love this advice....so I am "reposting"...
