Warm Up the Winter With Adventure

It is officially winter and we're all trying to find ways to stay warm. If you're fortunate enough to have a snuggle buddy, I found a few ways to mix up your routine and raise the thermometer a few notches while you're at it. Don't resort to the same old, same old. It's been proven that new experiences strengthen relationships and make them last longer. Heat things up with your honey and treat him or her to an unforgettable adventure.

P.S. these make great Valentine's Day Gifts for Girlfriends or wives... hint, hint guys!
