“The art of love… is largely the art of persistence.” ~Albert Ellis
There are two very valuable lessons about love that could be a cure for our broken relationships and dissatisfying sex lives: Love does not come made to order; and we must be willing to ask for what we want. These two common misunderstandings about the limits of our relationships can wreak havoc in the development and maturity of many long-term partnerships. Maybe it is the fault of reading too many romantic novels or being brought up in an Ozzie & Harritet-like culture of happily ever after, but the sad and happy truth of real and lasting loving relationships is that we don’t have control over how other people love us. This truth becomes very clear when it’s combined with the belief that other people should know what we feel (or want) from love without having to tell them – and suddenly – the brokenness of our collective love lives.

Moms have the hardest job. We’re often in the thick of it — covered in spit up, changing diapers, getting purees hurled at us, doing dirty laundry, breastfeeding around the clock, handling toddler tantrums — and so on and so forth.

This year, let’s resolve to change that! At Daily Mom, we like to boost our confidence by wearing fun and sassy lingerie from Smart & Sexy!

When the temperature drops and more hours are spent indoors snuggled up under blankets, nothing beats a warm mug of drinking chocolate. Drinking chocolate, rather than cocoa, is the more grown up and richer version of a favorite childhood treat. Packaged and powdered drink mixes–move aside. Drinking chocolate makes a delectable gift, perfect for Valentine’s Day, a birthday, or the holidays. However, we dare you to try this recipe and still want to give it away!
