It’s that time of the year when things start to get stressful…Summer loving is over, vacation mode is over, the kids are going back to school, you start feeling the summertime blues so now what do you do?
As lovers, we tend to lose romance over time especially with busy schedules, having kids, paying bills and attending birthday parties and other social gatherings.
It’s easy to let time pass without spending quality time together, the summertime is a great time to get away, re-connect and spend quality time together but what happened once all of that is over and its back to the grind, back to school and back to the hectic lifestyle.
