Mike is a goofball.

And When I met him, he was the ultimate bachelor. I mean seriously.... He owned not just one--but TWO kegs.  
He flaunted a pool table.  
Women would leave THEIR WALLETS at his house, 
just so they'd have an excuse to see him the next day.
He would throw parties, and by the end of the night, 
end up looking like this:

 But for some reason, when Mike met me and my army of children, he went from this:

I am also a goofball:

And even though, I was happy being a single mom, 
and I thought I'd never find romantic love again...

I did.

Through all of this, I truly believe the key to keeping your romance alive is to really appreciate 
every moment you have with each other--
and to have fun. 
 
Whether you're working on the yard:

Or on an adventure:

Just remember, life is short--enjoy the time you have together.
 
And if you haven't met the right person yet, don't lose hope.
I never thought I would....
BUT I did.
 
 
What keeps your romance alive?
