How to make your husband WANT to spend time with you.

This week I took a day off work to help my husband. He was tackling a small paint job and asked me to join him. I didn’t paint. We didn’t talk much. My biggest contribution was driving to the Hardware store for a needed item. The rest of the time, I just kept him company …

Growing up I loved watching the “Cinderella” Disney movie. I’d watch it over and over again hmmm i’d say,  about every day 🙂 . I’ve always been drawn to romance movies and I catch myself always admiring good romantic relationships. I hardly watch TV, but when I do it’s usually TLC’s “Say Yes To The Dress,” as well as  “Four weddings,” and I deeply admire HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” couple. Anyway, you get the picture.
