August is half over already -the month is going fast! But there’s still time…
Are you doing the 31-Day Romance Challenge? Or have you shared it with someone who would love a little more romance? The “challenge” involves doing some small thing with your sweetie each day. It’s happening RIGHT NOW on AnnmarieKelly.com and on FB at FiveYearMaraige. The idea is to take a little time each day to show your sweetie – and your relationship – some love.
The “challenges” aren’t hard and don’t take a ton of time…unless you want them to go longer. For example, here are the Challenges from the first week:
Quick and Easy, Right?
Joseph and I have been doing them and “reporting” about them on FB LIVE. We’re doing it because, too many times, we think romance has to be some big elaborate PDA. They can be fun but I know that, so many times, big shows of affection are designed more for the people watching than for the sweetie – a phony attention-getter instead of an honest affection-giver (my conversation with MaryJo Buttafuoco on The Friday Happy Hour comes to mind).
However, I know for sure that real romance happens in small doses and often at unexpected times or in unexpected ways. THAT’S what the Romance Challenge is designed to spark!
That’s why we’ve been posting and sharing on FB. It took some time to figure out how to do it – and it’s frustrating to know that 10-year-olds are posting on TikTok and grown adults can’t figure it out. But Joseph is still home recovering frm his surgery and had time to figure it out.
Also, Joseph and I aren’t so comfortable sharing or being on camera (especially Joseph), but we’ll get better with time. Here are the first two weeks on FB:
Romance Challenge Week 1
Romance Challenge Week 2

The romance happens in remembering the little things you said, thought, or did when you were “new” that helped you fall in love in the first place. The “challenge” is dedicating a few minutes each day to focus on your relationship.
A little romance revival is worth a little effort, yes?
It’s MY GIFT to YOU and you can download it HERE.
During August, each time you post something about your romance challenge (e.g how that day’s challenge surprised your sweetie, or how much you enjoyed doing it, a photo, etc.) on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest) and tag my account (so I can give you credit!) you’ll be entered into a drawing for The Fabulous Five-Year Marriage® Gift Pack: a personally autographed copy of The Five-Year Marriage® (so you can keep the good feelings going), a beautiful journal (to keep track of your romance), a pocket notebook (for those little love-reminders), a pen to record them with, and a $30 gift card to Panera (where you and your sweetie can go for some quiet talk). It’s everything you need to get busy leveling up your relationship romance!
