When is the last time you stopped and reflected on the things you love about your partner? Putting all negative traits behind, you should really write down what you absolutely love. An example for me is I love how hard working my husband is. He is not lazy and does his best each day to provide for us.
I think it is so important to focus on the positive, and having it written down as a reminder is a very uplifting thing for both of you.
Romantic Tip: Make a list of the top 10 things you love about your partner.

Apples On Piggyback
adapted from Food and Wine Magazine
4 thin slices of bacon, cut in half.
1 Green Apple—peeled and cut into 8 wedges
2 ounces Manchego cheese, sliced 1/4 inch thick and cut into 2-by-1/2-inch sticks
8 toothpicks, for skewers
Preheat a grill pan.
I cooked mine in the oven on a grill pan, so I preheated the oven to high broil. You can make them in the oven, or on the grill.
Arrange the bacon slices on a work surface and place an apple wedge and a cheese stick in the center of each slice.
Wrap the bacon around the filling and secure with a toothpick.
Cook skewers until the bacon is golden and crispy and the cheese is melted, 5 to 6 minutes.
