When Lamar and I first started dating, just thinking about him made me smile from ear to ear. And honey…when that man walked into the room I had no control over my body. Any effort to hold back my smile was thwarted by how brightly my eyes lit up. The way he said my name made me blush. We touched, we giggled, we flirted with each other and eventually we got married. Let's face it, I had a serious case of the butterflies for my sweetie. When we got married, we had an instant blended family with my two kids. Picture a few butterflies floating away as we dealt with blended family challenges. We had two more kids, a mini van car payment, we built a new home and we had two very challenging careers. Picture more butterflies flying away as we dealt with the every day hustle and bustle of life. Don't get me wrong, the love that I have for my husband grows stronger each year that we are together. But I don't want our fun, our passion, and our flirting to fly away. I quickly realized that if I wanted the butterflies to stay…that I (we) would have to do something about it. Being married does not mean that you have to live a life without butterflies because you can have them with your spouse. Check out 10 ways that will help you keep the butterflies or get them back. - By Ronnie Tyler
