Tia Mowry-Hardrict and her husband, Cory, might have just celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary, but the couple has been together for 13 years. This is why the actors decided to renew their wedding vows so soon after the big milestone. On her site, TiaandTameraOfficial.com, Tia shared some ways she and Cory have kept the spark alive over the years.
Not only does she suggest going out on "crazy, adrenaline-rushing" dates to shake things up in the relationship, but she also points to the importance of making little showings of affection count.
"You might not think the little things matter once you've been together for a while, but they really do. Small things like flowers or handwritten notes really show your significant other you don't take them for granted. It also helps remind you of the excitement you felt when your relationship first started," Mowry-Hardrict writes.
The blog post is interspersed with adorable pictures of the couple in the early days of their courtship and now that they've been together more than a decade, Mowry-Hardrict suggests keeping the sexy alive and paying attention to your looks.
"After you've been with one person for a while, it's easy to fall into what I call the 'sweats rut.' That is, you no longer feel like you have to impress them and start paying less and less attention to your appearance, and every day becomes a sweats and T-shirt kind of day. Now I'm definitely not saying that you need to be frantically hitting the gym every day to keep the body you had five years ago, but it is important to remember to still make an effort sometimes."
