woman wearing cute bunny earsDid you get everything I told you to pick up on Tuesday so you could have a romantic Easter surprise for your sweetheart?

If not, hop on over to the store and get all the items below:

• Small Chocolate Easter Eggs
• Bunny Ears
• Easter Card
• Candles
• Something good to drink: Wine, Beer, Champagne or Sparkling Cider
• Sexy Lingerie

In the morning hand the Easter card to your sweetheart with a note saying:

“Sweetheart tonight I want you to hop along the chocolate Easter egg trail to your mischievous Easter Bunny who will make you feel soooo good we will be hippy hopping on the bed all night long!”

In the evening, lay a trail of chocolate Easter eggs down the hall to your bedroom; light the candles; pour your drink of choice and have your sexy lingerie on waiting for your sweetheart to appear.

May you have a very romantic, funny and memorable Easter evening together.

Keep those sparks flying!

Loving coupleA friend sent this to me by email and I thought it was so good I needed to pass it on to you. I tweaked it a bit for your marriage but we should all live this way no matter who we are with.

Give your sweetheart more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older , their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

When you say, “I love you,” mean it.

When you say, “I’m sorry,” look the person in the eye.

Be engage at least six months before you get married.

Believe in love at first sight.

Never laugh at your sweetheart’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.

In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

Don’t judge your sweetheart by their relatives.

Talk slowly but think quickly.

When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?’

Remember that great love and achievements involve great ricks.

Say “bless you” when you hear your honey sneeze.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for your sweetheart; and Responsibility for all your actions.

Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship/marriage.

When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Spend some time alone.

Wise words to live by in your lifetime. You will be a happier person and so will your relationship.

Keep those sparks flying!

The Today Show had Brittany Gibbons on to talk about how she decided to have sex with her husband for a year. Her reasons for this decision were that she had such a low self-esteem of her body and didn’t feel comfortable being naked with her sweetheart.

I have found that most women feel this way whether they are skinny or fat. What women don’t understand is men find women sexy no matter what size they are.

Brittany decided to try something to change her feelings about her body.

What is so impressive is how Brittany transformed the feelings she had about her body and their marriage by being intimate with her husband every night for a year.

Got issues with your body? Ladies listen and try what Brittany did and you may change the way you feel too.

In December of 2009 I published this and thought it was worth republishing it.

portrait of coupleA while back I was at a department store and I was purchasing something cute and sexy for my husband. When I walked up to the register the lady who was in her seventies looked at me, smiled and with a twinkle in her eyes she proceed to tell me this story.

Her husband came home one evening with a bouquet of flowers for her. He smiled and said “Just because I love you.” Well that got her thinking that she needed to do something “Just because I love you also” for him.

As luck would have it she worked in the lingerie department and she purchased a very sexy corset set. One evening she put the corset on and when her husband came home and walked into the house she smiled at him and said “Just because I love you!”

I loved this story for four reasons:

1. Her husband didn’t expect anything in return when he brought the flowers home.

2. The wife started to think of a way to show him how much she appreciated him.

3. This is a couple who were very much in love with each other and they obviously were thoughtful of the other. People don’t stay in love when they are not courteous to one another. The couple that stays in love respects each other and shows their love in expected and unexpected ways, they keep the romance alive.

4. The couple was in their seventies. They didn’t have the youthful body that a young couple would have but they were comfortable enough with themselves to not be afraid to dress sexy in the privacy of their home.

Why not have a “Just because I love you” night. Ladies get out the sexy lingerie that has been hanging in your closet, put it on and let your spouse know you love them just because.

Men pick up a bouquet of flowers and bring them home to that special wife of yours and when you walk in the door tell her “Just because I love you” and give her a long and romantic kiss.

AH, the pleasure of a “Just because I love you” moment.

Keep those sparks flying!

A perfect Sunday to celebrate the lazy days of summer along with the perfect snack!

People now days are over worked, with work, kids, commitments, i.e. overtime, kids schedules, housework, cooking dinner & paying the bills there is no down time. August 10th is the perfect day to close the doors and do nothing.

SmoreAugust 10th also allows you to enjoy one of America’s favorite child snacks, S’mores!

Just in case you don’t know how to make them here is the easy recipe:

S’mores

Are you feeling like you have lost the spark in your relationship? Then you will want to watch the Today Show Video on how to bring that lovin feeling back.

Sex Counselor, Ian Kerner and Sex Counselor, Janet Taylor talk how to connect in small ways you may not have thought about.

How to Get the Spark Back in Your Relationship

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

I thought they had some great ideas to help you find some alone time with your sweetheart.

1. Show affection and kindness.

2. Make sure the kids are active during the day so they will go to bed early so you and your partner can have some quiet time together.

3. Bring a babysitter along with the children and play miniature or bowling and try to get away with your sweetie pie for a little bit and then regroup with everyone.

4. Don’t forget to put a lock on the bedroom door that way there are no little munchkins trying to walk in on your fun time.

5. Go away for a weekend with another couple who have children around the same age as yours that you enjoy being with and trust. Take turns getting away with your honeybun.  The kids will have fun with their friends and you don’t have to give them 100% of your time. They probably won’t even notice you left them for a little bit.

These are great suggestions to help you figure out how to put that spark back into your relationship. Make it a point to try one, two or all five and see if it helps you get in sync with that special someone you married.

I published this on 7/15/2010 and thought it was worth revisiting. Enjoy!

Family Dining Al Fresco At The BeachThe daily stress of working, taking care of the kids and cooking dinner can seem like too much. So you are trying to decide what to have for dinner. You have forgotten to take something out of the freezer or you are just too tired to think let alone cook dinner.

Ladies, why not run to the grocery store and pick up a rotisserie chicken and a salad from the deli on your way home. Guys, you know your wife is under more stress than usual so why not offer to pick up dinner for them. Grab paper plats, sodas, blanket and the kids and go to the beach or park and have dinner basking in the last of the sun’s rays while enjoying your beautiful family. You will feel as if you are on vacation! Let the kids play on the swings and jungle bars while you and your spouse sit back and watch them.

After you have picked everything up and everyone is in the car stop by the local ice cream store and buy everyone an ice cream. Sit outside and watch the cars go by and ask each child how their day was and what they did. When you get home help each other bathe the kids and put them to bed.

When our daughter was small we would take a picnic dinner on the beach all the time and then go for a walk along the strand with her. These are the special times I remember more than the expensive dinners out with just my husband.

A while back a friend was complaining about how much stress she was under and I suggested when she and her husband got home to grab the kids and have a picnic dinner on the beach. She responded with it is a half hour away. I said so! I told her that her family would never forget the night in the middle of the week they went for a picnic on the beach. She took my suggestion and sure enough every so often when I see her she said her kids and her husband bring up how much fun they had. They now try to do it every so often.

Once the house is quiet and you have gotten ready for bed why not pour a small glass of wine or sparkling cider, light a candle and enjoy a little rest and relaxation together with soft music playing in the background. Find out what kind of day you both had. By the time you both put your heads down on the pillow you will feel more relaxed than when you first came home from work. You will have enjoyed your family and each other. Your children will feel a connection to you and the stability of your marriage.

So go ahead and take the night off in the middle of the week. Your marriage and children will thank you.

Keep those sparks flying!
