Do you want stronger happier relationships A great place to start is to celebrate the little things. Big or small. Celebrate!

“Couples who are most committed, intimate, and satisfied in their relationship are those who appreciate each other’s achievements . . . the happiest husbands and wives were those who made the biggest deal out of good things that happened to them.” ~Ladies Home Journal

Do you agree?

Are you a celebrator of good things . . . no matter how big or small?

Some things to celebrate:

  • A met goal or progress toward meeting a goal
  • First steps or giggles
