Everybody loves surprises! Maybe send a text that makes them think, “Wow! I can’t wait to see my husband/ wife tonight!” Write a note and stick it in their car to find later! Send flowers, or chocolate, or maybe buy tickets to their favorite band who is in town!


Connect Every Day!

It is important to talk every day with your spouse! This is a key ingredient to keeping the spark alive. Why do you ask? Because it allows you to not just have a physical connection, but an emotional one too! Life gets busy, but communicating helps you to still connect! Communicate past the typical “I love you!” Tell your spouse what you love about them! Explain to them how much they mean to you! These small things create a big spark! Try it and see!


Show Each Other You Love One Another!

Stop the Routine!

Make the Choice!

    These are all very good messages for a healthy marriage. We just celebrated our 25th last month and have integrated most of these regularly over the years.

    yep, choose love everyday is what marriage is all about. We celebrate 20 years this year and it’s been tough for some of that through infertility and now the season of small children as older parents (or as a ‘geriatric mother’ is the medical term for birthing over 40 her!). It’s important to children to see their parents as connected outside of them and to know we existed as best friends before they came along
