Erica and Josh Hartwig are surrounded by love daily through their photography business Organic Moments Weddings, but that also means they essentially spend 24 hours a day together running a company and raising their five kids. Still, Erica says Josh is truly an old romantic. She recalls one tender moment when the seven of them were on a secluded beach. “We were laying snuggled on the sand, 60 degrees out, blankets on, our kids playing, and no one else there,” she says. “Josh said, ‘When I die this is what will flash before my eyes. This is the best part of life.’ I fell in love all over again.” These romantic quotes from books will make your heart melt.

Despite a successful law career, Elena Ledeoux says she frequently doubts herself, especially when, recently, she was launching a new startup company. “One day when I was fretting that it wasn’t going to work, my husband gave me a big hug, looked me in the eyes, and said, ‘You can do it. You’ve always done it,’” she recalls. “His complete, unwavering belief in me was the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard. And it helped me get through the initial period before my company took off.” Don’t miss the surprising secrets of the most happily married couples.
