Sexy Easter Egg Hunt

Sex it Up This Easter {wait…what??}

With the impending move, the hubs and I decided not to go home to Arizona for Easter this year. It was a tough choice to make, especially since our little nieces are still at that “looks adorable in puff sleeves and butt bows”/”Easter egg hunts are so much fun” age. It will be sad missing…

Several weeks ago, my husband and I came across a book we had never opened: “15 Minute Devotions for Couples.” It had been an engagement gift from J.P.’s sister and her husband- a baptist minister in Maricopa, AZ, given to us in the spring of 2008. Beneath the title, a shiny photo of a couple,…
