Holiday Romance

December 5, 2011

in the generous life

Just wanted to point out that moments of romantic expression are everywhere.  You just have to look for them (and sometimes plan for them).

My husband and I frequent a little Italian restaurant for lunches when we go into the city.  This restaurant has a chalk board in the waiting lounge (see picture).  Yes, it’s a bit silly, but my husband got the point.  I love spending time with him and he is my sweetie.

As you go through the holiday season, look for little ways to love on your husband.  Leave a piece of his favorite candy on his pillow, fix his favorite dinner (how about candlelight?), play “your song” and invite him to dance or wear that dress that he loves to a Christmas party.

It’s all about knowing him and letting him know in small ways that he matters.

Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze. Carolyn Gold Heilbrun

Funny! I just wrote an article about romance on my blog yesterday! I love your suggestions, just had a reader tell me about your blog. I love it and your hubby’s blog! Thank you! :)

When you read the last sentence, it could almost be interpreted as you invite him … wear that favorite dress that he loves to a Christmas party. Of course, we know that’s not what you meant…but it does give a giggle.
