My husband and I have been married over 10 years and we still look at each other with a twinkle in our eye at times- the same twinkle that was there when we first started dating. There was a time of stress and sorrow that threatened to derail our love life, but we saw the potential for distance to creep between us and we took proactive steps to guard our precious relationship. Grief can be very consuming and some seasons are very physically, emotionally, and mentally demanding- there are times you and/or your spouse may feel like you have "nothing left to give" and romance may be the last thing on your mind due to pressing circumstances beyond your control. It's okay- you don't ever have to force yourself to try keep up with expectations or even hopes- but you DO have to be intentional. If we can keep the romance alive and come out on the other side of several traumatic experiences with a deeper, richer intimacy, so can you! These 5 steps are made to be customized- so give them a read and pray about what steps you may need to take. Your marriage and love life are worth it!
Since this book functions both as a devotional and a coloring book, I'll review both aspects individually.
Let's dig in!
This giveaway is a little late to the party since I reviewed the film a few weeks ago, but it makes up for tardiness with quality! An Eco Smart Certified Organic Cotton Canvas bag with sturdy rope handles and a leather-look journal which says "Goodbye Christopher Robin" on the front and features a cute balloon on the back cover. The journal has a ribbon bookmark, elastic closure, and plenty of blank lined pages for your thoughts, dreams, goals and/or doodles.
Below are some additional pictures of the prizes. Check your email for a "WINNER NOTIFICATION: CANVAS BAG + JOURNAL" message at the end of the giveaway. As always, I do not require you to sign up for blog updates or newsletters to enter my email so you can enter my giveaways without dealing with more incoming to your inboxes.

I am not much of a blog reader. There's only a couple I check on occasion:
Love this girl's writing... feels like she's a long distance friend. Well, her sister is my long-distance friend, so that probably helps. Either way, what an inspiration and encouragement- you just need to check out some of the places life has taken Leah and be strengthened and inspired by the love that oozes (yes, oooozes) from her heart for Jesus, His people and His creation!
If you like nummy recipes, or have special dietary needs (or both!) check it out. ALL of her recipes are Vegan, and many can be made gluten-free. I stumbled upon it when searching for dairy/egg free treats to make for my kiddo and have gotten hooked on several recipes. Okay, "hooked on" doesn't portray it well enough. How about "addicted to"? That's more fitting. Will definitely be going back for more!
