I have had a lot of great sex in 28 years of marriage but the memories that stick in my head are the times when my husband planned something special. He did not have to spend a lot of money or time – sometimes it was as simple as him starting a fire and spreading a blanket on the floor. But I knew my husband was thinking of me. 

Men, step up and make some memories with your wife. This weeks date is about as simple as it gets…

Date number 2 is for husbands to plan.



In honor of a New Year… Getting ready for Valentines…Getting out of the doldrums of winter…Making new memories…

Sometimes you just want to have fun.

So for the next 6 Thursdays, we will suggest very specific and creative ways to let loose, have fun and make memories with your spouse. Whether newlyweds or married 50 years, if you have no kids, young kids, grown kids or teenagers, adding some enthusiasm and whimsy to your marriage benefits everyone!

Don’t just read about it, actually do it!

Some of the ideas will be for husbands and some will be for wives. You can easily adapt all of the ideas for the other. Weekly, we will make it clear who the post is for. If you want to be surprised, you can stop reading and forward the post to your spouse. Or you can just decide to treat your spouse for 6 weeks straight.

Have fun, connect, find refreshment and revel in each other.  It is going to be a great year!
