It's fun to read and it's fun to write. It's even fun to watch on television or movies. Or listen to in songs.
But it's not always easy to put our finger on exactly what makes something romantic. I imagine it's a little different for everyone. For me, it's my husband jumping in when he can see I'm stressed and helping out with making a cake or saving lunch when the slow cooker died the day I had invited friends over. It's giving the kids a bath so that I can sit and read for a few minutes. It's making sure I get time to myself to shower without interruptions. Taking out the trash. Offering to swing by the store on the way home because we're out of milk. Coming up behind me and snuggling for a moment with a kiss to my cheek. It's sharing a smile when the children do something funny or cute. It's listening when I need advice on what to post. It's telling me I look nice.
See? It's not all roses and chocolate ... although I never turn those down, either.
It's the little things. On my grandparents' fiftieth wedding anniversary, all 13 of their grandchildren sang for them. The girls sang a song that played on the radio when they were dating, "Little Things Mean a Lot." It's been about twenty years, but every now and then a line from that song still goes through my head because the truth is still there.
So, I want to hear some of the romantic things your sweetie does for you. Anything swoon-worthy? What's something little that means a lot to you?
This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
