oh the dreaminess

certainly one of the most magical chapters of our lives is brand new love.  while I enjoy stability and routine and certainty in my relationship, I sometimes think about the excitement of the early stages.  all the fluttery giddyness and melty feelings and can't-keep-your-hands-off-each-otherness....yum. 

if you haven't read the road less travelled by m. scott peck, get thee to your nearest bookstore or library.  it's a classic guide to growing up.  and growing up means working through our infatuation with infatuation and romance.  giving up our attachment to the energy of this necessary stage of relationship is very challenging and can lead to many problems if we resist and insist on staying there.  dr. peck tells us that the reality of a real and honest relationship is hard work, but worth it.  I agree.

but I still miss being new.  okay love experts, we need your ideas for lovey sparkly newness.  what are some things you do to keep an old relationship new?
