What is romantic ?
This week heralds Valentine’s day. Some people see it as an over-blown Hallmark holiday, and some people see it as a time to express their deep, romantic love for their ‘honey’ — I kind of see it as something in between. To me, it is like any other day, but it is also a day for celebrating with extra hugs and kisses, extra snuggles, extra, well, you know. It’s a day that reminds us, apart from our anniversary, as a married couple, that we are still, you know, people. We are friends as well as lovers and partners. We’re not just teammates working on a full house, we’re a couple that bought each other stuffed animals for our first Valentine’s day, that sappy twosome that stole kisses is still inside our individual selves, not just working on a budget.
What means romance to you? To me, just hanging out and having fun ranks a full 10, over a dinner out, which would be at about an 8… I? I did my workout this morning, got cleaned up, and came down to a plate of scrambled eggs and a hot biscuit! Having breakfast that I did not have to make is so good. Right now, I’m tossing miniature marshmallows for him to catch in his mouth. My aim is getting better. For the record, marshmallows fly better than popcorn. I think I already got my present. Home cooked breakfast and some ‘silly time’ this afternoon. You can’t beat that. Now I’ll just have to find something really good for him.
So what will you do for Valentine’s day? Will you buy flowers for your guy? Send him a love letter? Will you send cupcakes to work with him, or stick a note to your baby’s diaper, not reminding him to change the little one, but reminding your love of how you got the little one in the first place? So give me your thoughts: what will you do to show your true love that you truly care about him/her this Valentine’s day? A day for Romance?
