Giveaway: The Five Love Languages Book (closed)

After I graduated college I had (still have) a long list of books my professors recommended reading that I just didn't have time to read while I was in school. This book was on my short list. I'd heard so many great things about it!

My sweet husband gave it to me for Christmas and suggested we read it together...what!? I mean, I know he's great. But him, my left brained engineer husband, volunteer to read a "feelings" book with me!? Weird. But of course I was ecstatic! Since this is what I had intended to force him to do in the first place.

Let me just say...I. Love. This. Book. It's not often that I will recommend something so highly - but seriously, everyone needs to read this. It will change your marriage. Ry and I have always had a great marriage, but there is always room for improvement. And let me just say, it has improved!

We understand each other so much better now. It's amazing. So - if you think you're marriage is perfect, let me remind you that first - this is a *free* giveaway, so you've got nothing to lose. And second, nobody's marriage is perfect, so stop kidding yourself.

In fact, Ry (who also loved it) and I have decided to give this book as a wedding present from here on out...and I sure wish it wouldn't be awkward to give it to some couples I know who struggle understanding each others love language. Maybe doorbell ditching it would be appropriate. We'll see.

Anyway...I'm giving two lucky winners this book!

So here's what you need to do to enter to win...leave a comment. That's it. But, if you want to increase your chances of winning, for each of the following that you do (let me know in your comment what you've done) - your name will be entered again!
