The Break-Up Diet

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. And what a neat way to celebrate than a Break-Up Diet book. But before we go there I'd like to say something...

This year I'll be celebrating my 31st wedding anniversary to my high school sweetheart.Married with five children, we've had our ups and downs but one thing I can honestly say is that if given the chance to change anything in my past I would definetely wish to have not wasted energy arguing over petty things.

I suppose that's what growing up is all about- understanding past mistakes and making amends. It's funny, but I love that man more today than when I first cast eyes on him in high school. And this sentiment has nothing to do with Velentine's Day as much as realizing and appreciating that your Prince Charming, your happily-ever-after life is stronger today because you've both held on and worked at things as a couple. I love you, Jimmy.

This brings me to the Break-up Diet:

Lea, thank you so much for supporting my book!

I loved your post about your husband! I think having a true intellectual connection with great conversation is the most bonding thing a couple can have. It's something that makes the love that much sweeter and has the ability to make the happily go all the way to ever-after.

I hope you both have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Awww... that was sweet Lea! I totally agree, when you think of the big picture, the little things that we argue with our hubbys about are so trivial. There are still Prince Charmings out there, even if they aren't like in the movies.

Happy Valentine's Day!
