When to button up and when to let her freak flag fly. As Sophia writes, "I have three pieces of advice I want you to remember: Don't ever grow up. Don't become a bore. Don't let the Man get to you. Okay? Cool. Then let's do this."

Book of the Week - "The 5 Love Languages"

Book of the Week - "The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to love that lasts" by Gary Chapman. Between busy schedules and long days, expressing love can fall by the wayside. We forget to compliment, to give gifts "just because", to linger in our embrace. The things that say "I love you" seem to either not get said or not get through. This is a book about saying it - and hearing it - clearly. No gimmicks. No psychoanalyzing. Just learning to express love in your spouse's language.
