Two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Nancy Shulins brings forth straight-from-life lessons on long-term love and the relationships nurtured by it in this composition of essays as varied as the moods of married life–each tale comes at love from a different angle to capture it in its entirety.
Every Day I Love You More: (Just Not Today!) offers lessons in loving one person for life. It teaches couples to count their blessings, learn from their mistakes, and strengthen the bonds between them. It offers honest, reliable, witty advice, and addresses every couples' day-to-day struggles, as well as ideas that are as clever as they are fun.
The tone of the essays will vary, much like the day-to-day mood in a marriage; some are poignant, some hilarious, some thoughtful, some spiritual, and some heart-warming, but all are drawn from real life. Each tale will focus on a different aspect of long-term love, and offer prescriptive suggestions for the reader. Some stories will come from the author's own marriage; others, from a wide range of committed relationships. Each offers gems of wisdom on weathering the bittersweet idiosyncrasies of every marriage, ranging from remembering why you first fell in love with him to knowing when you need time apart to indulging his need for a Lay-Z-Boy recliner. As a result, every couple who've made it past the honeymoon stage will recognize themselves in these pages, and learn to love each other more every day — even when "every day" starts tomorrow.
