Drowning in boring? Get ready to Ignite… your love life!

Laura-Ignite-pink

Every day is an opportunity to love and be loved, however there is something that feels extra special about February. Not only is it the shortest month in all the year (and a leap year this year.. how cool!!), but it also means that spring is ever closer to warming our souls and uplifting our senses with the rebirth of everything (at least in the northern hemisphere)!

Can I get a Woo Woo?!!

Recently, I had the pleasure of chatting with two powerhouse execs in Buffalo, NY, who have a podcast for women, by women. Julia and Anne are a frickin’ hoot and I was thrilled to sit down with them for their Valentine’s day episode and get jiggy talking about relational intimacy on the¬†Snyder on Call Podcast!

I’m passionate and curious about the variety of intimate relationships that exist in our world, what makes them wax and wane or last through the ages, and was thrilled to receive an invitation to dive into the topic on how to “reignite” love and intimacy in long-term romantic partnerships with Julia and Anne. What a timely topic in this season of looovveee… ūüėČ

There are lots of giggles, gasps, ooooo’s and ahhhh’s as I share my insights…

You know I like to give it to you straight! This is a great conversation for anyone who is curious about and interested in reigniting or upleveling their intimate connection with their partner, and/or themselves, with exciting tips and tricks for keeping your love life alive.
