Romance Is…

bbf8953b8f58540f3d1e4c3fea996265Romance is something that we all desire at some point in our lives.  It’s not about (or shouldn’t be about) how much money a person spends on you.  What it should be about is that the person in your life takes TIME to do something that will make you smile (and have butterflies in your stomach).  It could be as simple as a phone call, these days a text message, showing up at an event you invited them to, remembering your favorite song and leaving it on a voice message, the list goes on

Anyone that knows me knows that I am an early to bed type of person, mainly because I’m a morning person so when night falls I am ready to go to sleep.  Ten years ago on the day before my birthday, I was awakened around 11pm and told to get dressed and be ready in 10 minutes.  I was sleep and of course didn’t want to do it but it was the beginning of a new love interest so I decided to get up and get dressed.  I had no idea what was going on or what he had in mind.

I was picked up and taken to a restaurant and at the stroke of midnight, a slice of cake and candle were brought to the table and he sung happy birthday to me along with a birthday card with sweet words inside.  At that moment, he had me and I thought that was the sweetest and most romantic gesture anyone had done for me (in a very long time).  I have other stories I could share, but this one is the one that stands out to ME and since he and I have a beautiful 8 year old daughter together, I thought it was appropriate.  It’s the little things.

What’s the Most Romantic Gesture AnyONE has Ever Done for YOU?  And for those that don’t understand romance, remember it’s the little things that we hold onto and remember.  Until next time
