Love is in the air…. during romance awareness month


“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.” —A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh


One doesn’t have to wait until February to celebrate love, and romance, for August brings Romance Awareness month!  Romance Awareness month was created by Celebrate Romance founder Eileen Buchheim, with the intention of helping couples reignite those sparks, and work on their relationships all through the year.

Romance Awareness month can be celebrated in many ways, from holding hands, writing a love letter, having a special date night, and/or…reading a great romance novel!

Here are some book lists to help celebrate and partake in romance awareness month!
