Rekindle the Romance

By Greg and Priscilla Hunt

August was Romance Awareness Month. But it’s always a good time to be
aware of romance! Now is the time to become aware of the romance that’s
brewing just below the surface of your relationship. Time to ignite a spark!
August was hot, hot, hot. . . so crank up the heat in your relationship and
prepare to sizzle.

Did you miss Romance Awareness Month? It’s never too late to rekindle
the romance in your relationship!

Here are a few ideas to kindle the romantic flame:

  1. Escape to the countryside; have an evening picnic and watch the sunset together.
  2. Cozy up and share a sundae. Disney’s Lady and the Tramp made sharing fun; why not the two of you?
  3. Send a virtual kiss to your sweetie’s Monday morning Inbox.
  4. Slow dance in the moonlight to your favorite love songs.
  5. Try something new and exciting together! Sign up for a couple’s massage class. Take tango lessons.
  6. Rediscover the magic of a kiss. 10 seconds minimum! This may require repeating often!
  7. Take a stroll in the warm summer rain. Forget the umbrella. You can dry each other off later.
  8. Extravagant yes, but how about a hot air balloon ride? Feel what it’s really like to be on cloud nine!
  9. Pitch a tent and camp in the backyard. Make love under the stars.
  10. Go skinny-dipping. Dare ya!

Romance. . . what turns you on?!
