Actually, it's easier than you might think. And here's a cheat sheet with 10 quick ideas that won't take more than five minutes each. Try just one a day for the next 10 days, and see if you haven't rediscovered romance.
with a quick note to say how much you appreciate something specific. For example: "Thanks for taking the trash out today! Made my morning go much more smoothly!"
on his cell phone voice mail. You really can "just call to say I love you." You can go the sexy route or just plain say, " I wanted you to know I was thinking of you."
in his backpack or briefcase or whatever he carries to work each day. "Have a great day!" Decorating with stickers is optional.
with a doughnut or another breakfast treat -- box it up and leave it on the counter or in his car the night before. Or get up early and make him a specialty coffee to go. Try this copycat recipe for a mocha Frappucino.
-- or at least have it delivered to him at the office if you know he's having a particularly stressful day. Call his favorite take-out place and dish up something delicious.
by taking care of his dry cleaning or some other errand he normally handles. When he asks, just say, "I took care of it." And smile.
like "Miss you already" right after he leaves in the morning.
from his Amazon wishlist or another trusted source. For no reason. Just because. Think of it as the equivalent of flowers.
to him at home or at work. Go funny, sexy, romantic, or whatever, but choose something that will speak to him, and take the time to write a personal note. Bonus points if you write about a shared memory from the early days of your courtship.
face to face, unprompted -- and not right after sex.
No matter how long you've been together and how far from romance your mind is these days, you can recapture the magic that once brought you together. Invest a little time in your spouse, and you'll love the rewards you reap.
