10 Simple Ways To Reclaim The Love

10 Simple Ways To Reclaim The Love

I mentioned on my Facebook Page, that I am guilty of this.  I do have a hard time connecting as I am always planning and checking, checking and planning. I have implemented some of these tips in my relationship and they truly do work. I am a believer. Reclaim the LOVE!
