Happier at Home
Day 2: Give gold stars.

Today's email is very true for both Patrick and myself. I think there are times that we do things around the house just for the gold star. As Gretchen put in her email "studies show that receiving a partner's 'affective affirmation'- one person's actions or words to make the other person feel loved, appreciated, desired, and supported- is very important to happiness."

I couldn't agree more.
