Today, as I was driving down the street listening to my littlest cackling at the movie she was watching from the back seat (don’t judge me, my moments of peace are few and far between), my mind wandered to the day I met my husband. My first thought was, “I don’t ever want to forget how amazing that day felt.”
Taking a trip with your main squeeze is one of the best ways to spark some romance in your otherwise monotonous routine. Whether it’s a one-night retreat a mile from home or a month long trans-continental escapade, make the most of your time away and pack a little passion in your suitcase.
My first Valentine’s Day as a new mom wasn’t exactly romantic—and not through lack of trying. We made reservations at a chic little bistro that wasn’t kid-friendly, I squeezed my postpartum self into something slinky that (gasp!) didn’t have an elastic waistband, and my husband even wore some cologne, which he hadn’t used since the days when we both began smelling like spit up and baby powder.
Sometimes it’s just too dang cold to go outside. When the weather turns icy and the temperature dips down low, your date nights can fall by the wayside. Don’t let your relationship get cabin fever. Here’re a few fun ways to make the most of your cozy nights at home.

Making resolutions for the new year can be tricky. We all go for the standards; eat better, exercise more, weigh less and so on and so forth. This year, how about making a resolution that’s a little less egocentric? Good health and a strong body are, indisputably, important. Yet, if you stop and think about the year behind us, and you consider how lucky you are to still have your man, as well as your children, by your side, you will probably realize there’s no time like the present to make your New Year’s Resolutions about them.
It’s easy to get lost in a relationship. As women, we do most of the heavy lifting in the emotional part of our relationships. Because of that, we tend to get tunnel vision and all of our attention on the relationship we have with our man, often forgetting about the relationship we have with ourselves. Remember that friend you had in high school who disappeared from your life whenever she had a boyfriend? Don’t be her.
Spending time together isn’t always about making dinner reservations and shelling out big bucks to stay at a five-star hotel. Date night doesn’t have to happen outside of your home. Carve out a little time for yourselves and enjoy the comforts of home by planning your next getaway without actually going anywhere.
