Romance: More than a Month

Just like Christmas isn't only one day, just the word February is the epitome of Romance for the calendar year. Sure, the 14th might be over but at the same time, I know a lot of people who don't even celebrate simply for the fact that they show their love and romantic side all year long.

My husband is a great example.

Long story short, a few weeks ago our car caught fire in our driveway during a snowstorm. Yeah, I'm still figuring that one out myself. It was scary, especially since it was parked so close to the house but the firemen made it through the snowy country roads and all was good--except for the car of course. Needless to say, it was a rather stressful time as our finances didn't alot for purchasing a new vehicle and being an old though really good car, the kilometers killed us on the insurance.

Sounds romantic, huh? Well, in the midst of all the figuring out a rental car, insurance, finances and worry etc, my husband comes to pick me up from work one night--with a bouquet of spring flowers. He simply said because it'd been a rough week. Yeah, I teared up.

He does that, just out of nohere will come home with some spring flowers (my favorite) or a hug or a kiss for no reason but we were standing in the same room. To me, that is romance...and I'm blessed because it lasts all year long.

So, don't let romance only come one day or one'd be surprised what an impromptu kiss or favorite dinner, or simple entwining fingers while you're grocery shopping can do not only for yourself, but your loved ones.

I've a special romance for one person today, a copy of my shorty story, A Matching Fancy. Love can last a lifetime.

Leave a comment on what you love about your significant other today and tomorrow (Mon and Tues) and on Wednesday morning, I'll draw a winner!!
