Spark Your Sexy in 2017

With just a little more than a month to Valentine's Day and the Season of Romance... or, at least, a wonderful week of Hearts, Roses, Wine & deeply-discounted, heart-shaped boxes of fine chocolate (why would you pay full price?!)...

It's the perfect time for a Romantic Resolution for 2017-- Spark Your Sexy!

Keep in mind, you can make any day Valentine's Day...

The #1 Way to Spark Your Sexy...

--> for less than the cost of a fancy cup of coffee!

I am very pleased -- let's say ecstatic -- to report The Rebel Housewife's 101 Sexy & Fun Love Notes, during the recent promo campaign, leaped up in the Amazon ratings, from near-obscurity to #1 and #3 in categories:

#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle Short Reads > 45 minutes (22-32 pages) > Parenting & Relationships
#3 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Health, Fitness & Dieting > Relationships > Marriage

Which is very exciting!


With all THAT going on, it has given me pause to reflect on love and romance and relationships... and marriage. It seems incredible and weird and unbelievable that I can say: Prince Charming and I have been married for TWENTY-EIGHT years -- wow -- and still going strong!

Yes, we started off very, very young: I was just 20 and he was 22. It doesn't even seem like that could be possible, then or now -- we're still way too young to be married that long, unruly silver hair (mine) and the accumulation of love and good food (about 20lbs for both of us), notwithstanding.

I have been married now for longer than I was not.

In the beginning, I was the Other Girl and he was the Wrong Boy -- according to my mother, anyway. I liked the motorcycle and his 'Bohemian lifestyle' (living on ramen and mac & cheese on his buddies' laundry porch -- one guy lived on the pool table).

We quickly disentangled ourselves from other relationships in the face of destiny and enjoyed our very own Summer of Love after my high school graduation in 1985. I was very young, at 17, and it took me a year or two to settle down and commit long-term, after enough first-year-college experience and variety to know he was The One. I never expected it to happen so early, but we both just knew (and we were right!).

We married on August 6, 1988, in a garden courtyard on a threatening-to-be-rainy day at our beloved Manor Farm Inn in Poulsbo, Washington, and the Adventure(s) began...

More than a quarter-century and three nearly-grown children later, it still seems so new, to my constant amazement. We still love each other, more every day, and we still like each other, too. I keep thinking, 25+ years into this, I should have some wisdom, the benefit of happily-ever-after experience, advice to share. Besides, you know, marry young and basically Imprint on each other...

People ask us the secret to a long and happy relationship?

For us, it's all about new Adventures and the appreciation of Magical Moments-- to create a life in which there are many of each. It keeps us together, always wondering (in a good way): What's next?!

As for advice, back to basics, the foundation:
