My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Love this List & My Valentine

This article has 5 great tips on keeping your relationship happy. In summary they are: 1. Talk to each other (seems obvious but SO important ... connect each day) 2. Flirt 3. Get Stupid Together (laugh & be silly) 4. Declare Your Independence 5. Share a Spiritual Moment each day.

Wow ... 26 years ago today in Steve's parents basement we talked about getting married! I can tell you I was in my 80's hair, red and white striped shirt tucked into my Rocky Mountain Jeans. I was young but it felt so right ... still does. I am so grateful for Steve and nothing brings me more joy than sharing my life with him.

Hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day with those you love.

Very nice ideas.
I think I will start a tradition --starting tonight, that before we kiss each other goodnight, we SHARE our most favorite part of the day, be it spiritual, or whatever.
sometimes that might be hard when it happens to have been NOT SUCH A GOOD DAY (as happens from time to time)
but it will force us to "remember something" some. little. thing.
as there always is

Those are great tips! Sometimes the simplest things are the most important.

We don't do enough of any of those things!! Thanks for the reminder--even little things add up.

Great relationship tips! They are right on. Hope you had a great weekend in St. George! My mom said the town was a bit busy because of the home show. Wish I could have been there!

Wendy - what a fun idea ... love to share :D or as Steve refers to it as 'process'
Mimi & Alphi PR: Agree - simplicity is nice.
Erin - yes, St. George was crowded but such nice weather.
