Marriage Matters: Fall to-do list

There is something about September 1 that always makes me feel excited and hopeful. A lot of people look to Jan 1 to set new goals but, for me, September 1 always meant a fresh start. It’s the beginning of my favorite month of the year, and my favorite season of the year. It’s the time of year when I don’t have to drag myself around as a hot and sweaty mess (summer is not my friend), and when the smells in the air are always fresh and clean. I decided this Autumn to create a bit of a bucket list – one that’s centered around doing things with my husband to improve our quality time together, and things for him that I know he enjoys.
