I barely have time to shave my legs, let alone think of fun and creative ways to freshen up my marriage.
Try as I might to squeeze in a sweet text or a loving Post-It to my husband, sometimes I can’t even manage to do that much. Thirteen years of marriage and a couple of kids have made it pretty damn easy sit back and trust that my husband knows how much I love him. But was that enough? Probably not.
Since I’m not a love doctor, I took to the internet for advice on how to give my slightly saggy marriage a little nip and tuck.
