Thus, two events to honor the occasion. First, I’m throwing the spotlight on One-Minute Romance for Couples, a very cute, pocket-sized book by inspirational speaker and writer Grace Fox. I’ll be tucking this one in my carry-on when we leave for Ireland in a few weeks, providing the perfect convo-starter for all those in-between moments that accompany international travel. Not that, after twenty-five years, we need much help finding something to talk about. But still. Nice to have someone help you think outside the box.
Second, it’s giveaway time. To celebrate the day, I’m giving away three romance novels. All you have to do is to tell me in a comment which one(s) you’d like to win, and your name will be entered in a drawing for that title. Choose one, two, or all three.
So good luck, and viva la romance!
About this book: A romance that lasts starts with good communication. But one nationwide survey indicated that most married couples spend only three or four minutes a day in meaningful conversation.
Do you sometimes wonder what to talk about? Do you ever feel as if you know all there is to know about each other? Would you like to go deeper but need some help knowing where to start? Whether you’re just getting to know each other or have been married for decades, this pocket-size trove of short, open-ended questions is sure to spark fun and meaningful conversations that will help you connect on many levels.
- “One of the first things that attracted me to you was…”
- “If you had a bucket list, what would be three of the top things on it?”
- “Describe a teacher or coach who made a positive impact on your life.”

After words: What’s your best advice for keeping romance alive? Me, I recommend date nights. In 25 years (well, 28 if you include the three before we married), we’ve hardly missed a Friday night date. I know of no better way that to stay interested in and connected with each other.
Don’t forget to tell me, too, which book you’d like to win. 🙂
