6. Greet Each Other Lovingly
I like to kiss and hug hello and goodbye. Seizing the moment to kiss goodbye doesn't take much longer than one more red light on your commute. Give that time to the ones you care about and send each other into the world with love.
7. Show You Care
Ask what his favorite things are, then pick something up online or on your way home from work and surprise him. Little things that let him know you are thinking about him can be an instant turn-on. Share your favorites, too. The wonderful thing about kids is you don't have to be subtle, which can be a wake-up call for partners, too. "Mom sure loves lavender soap and long hot baths!"

8. Play With Toys!
Toys aren't just for kids. I love bringing home new goodies from Babeland and "testing" them out. My man loves JimmyJane and Lelo Candles. We light them around the house and their aroma helps us relax and get in the mood. Everyone can enjoy vibrations. I can't wait to try the hugely popular WeVibe II couple's vibrator!
9. Keep Lube Handy
I always have 3-4 lubes stashed under my lover's bed, so I can choose whatever type our play calls for. Sliquid Natural is organic, and Flavored Lubes are an excellent addition to oral sex. Also, these specially formulated super natural lubes and oils from Blossom Organics are wonderful and good for you and the earth. Babeland Silicone Lube is wonderful and long lasting, great for sex in the shower or hot tub. Lubettes are great to keep in your purse or bag, so that you have it when you need it.
Appreciate your time with your partner. Even if you are both typing at your respective computers or texting on your smart phones, you can still do items 1-7 on this list every day. You can build intimacy and spark feelings of love even when you are both juggling the everyday demands of living and loving!
