The following are some of her relationship tips:

1. Spice up your romance on Valentine’s Day and continue to keep it interesting for your loved one.

• Write short, little notes expressing your love for your partner and leave them in a place where they will least expect it

• Make their life a little easier. (i.e. put toothpaste on their toothbrush in the morning or leave their favorite cereal in a bowl at night so they are surprised to find it waiting for them in the morning)

• Make a treasure hunt using little yellow post-it notes and have your partner’s favorite snack – or some other type of surprise – at the end of the trail

• Make a fake temporary tattoo on your body with lipstick or eyeliner – maybe draw a heart with your partner’s initials inside it

• Bring home flowers or a romantic card – “just because”

• Surprise them with their favorite movie and watch it together on the couch

• Take your partner to their favorite restaurant one evening instead of going to yours

2. Ways to prioritize your relationship time with work time
