Happy Valentine's Day! This is Winter Song by Sara Bareilles/Ingrid Michaelson. It's apropos considering our recent winter weather down south and the holiday we celebrate each February.
As a married woman, I’ve been given lots of advice over the years about how to keep the fire burning and keep love alive. As a romance writer, I’ve had to invent some ways to keep love surprising. Here’s a list of some practical things couples can incorporate into their daily lives.- Start every day with a hug.
- Never go to bed mad.
- Choose to love, even if you don't feel like it.
- Laugh together.
- Offer a genuine compliment.
- Say “I love you” every time you part.
- Kiss like you mean it.
- Never say no to sex.
- Lock the door and turn out the lights (and not just when the in-laws are in the driveway).
How do you keep love alive? What advice can you add to this list?
