Finally Home To Family Widget and $15 Amazon.com Card Giveaway! **CLOSED!

**CLOSED! Winner posted here!!**

Most people know that my husband is in the military.

It's tough when he has to deploy.

The longest he's been gone is a year.

Reunions are always a joyous occasion but sometimes in the back of the mind I think, "When will he have to go again?"

This is why the following giveaway is close to my heart.

I was contacted to post the Finally Home to Family Widget. On it, you can take a romance recipe quiz to find out what your spouses secret ingredient for romance is.

You can download the Finally Home Dates PDF and found out some ways to spice up your romance life.

And finally, if you feel you are alone in your struggles (after all, saying goodbye and reuniting all the time is not easy) you can check out other stories from couples who candidly talk about what they've been through.



The following was copied from the e-mail I was sent. I felt it important to share:

"For many service men and women the day they return home is the happiest day of their lives! We have all seen the happy reunions of families during the holidays, but what happens after the reunion is over? For many men and women it’s the beginning of a new struggle, the struggle to put their families back together again, and it’s not easy. Military divorces have increased 42% since 2001, and that number is sure to increase with the number of service men and women returning home from Afghanistan."


Looking for a way to bring romance back?

I was generously told I could give away a $15 gift card to Amazon.com, which will be sent electronically to the winner.

Amazon has tons of different items that can be used to spice up your love life!

"Your spouse is an active person and likes to participate in a hands on way. One of the ways they receive love is by a thoughtful gift that reminds them you care. They love it when you remember to add a touch romance to the relationship by reminding them that they hold that very special place in your life"

Your spouse likes to be in the middle of the action where the crowd is. One of the ways they receive love is when you clear the schedule and make time for the little things that often get lost in the busyness of life. They love it when you affirm them with your words, so go the extra mile and tell them of how much they mean to you.

I would have said the secret ingredient to our romance is Febreze. Men are stinky.

I took the quiz. This was my answer:

"Your spouse knows what they like and wants to take time out to appreciate their favorite things. One of the ways they receive love is by sharing lighthearted experiences together where they can leave their worries behind for a little while. They love being around you in whatever context, so come up with creative ways of making new memories together!"

I follow your blog AND I took the quiz. I can't remember all the things that the quiz said as my mind went fuzzy when it said he was a "hands-on" person. Swoon.

I have never had to change my tire or mow the lawn. Success after 30 years as far as I'm concerned.
