This is one of the most romantic seasons, so now is the perfect time to "pumpkin spice" up your marriage. Here's how:

  • 1. Make a new fall treat together

  • Pinterest is LOADED with fun fall recipes you can try. Baking and cooking something new with your sweetheart will be tons of fun, and maybe you'll even find your official "secret family recipe" you'll pass down to your kids and grandkids.

  • 7. Write love notes and read them by a fire

  • Campfires are so much fun in the fall. Take some blankets with you and a love note for your sweetheart, and have a romantic evening reading your notes, chatting about life, roasting marshmallows and being together. The date is basically free, and the quality time is priceless.

  • 10. Get going on your New Year's resolutions

  • If you've let your New Year's resolutions slip, it's not too late to get going on them again. The year isn't over until January 1 at midnight, so there's still time to lose those five pounds or read that book like you promised yourself you would.

  • 11. Start a workout routine together

  • Speaking of New Year's resolutions ... the holidays are full of delicious food, which means it's super easy to let a few extra pounds sneak onto your body. This is totally fine, but you'll feel better if you have a workout routine. Start one up with your spouse and work out together.

  • Fall should be the official cuddling season. Enjoy all the festivities, parties and celebrations, but don't forget what's most important — your spouse. Spend a little extra time cuddling, kissing and giving quality time.
