Valentines day is on Tuesday next week - so here are my thoughts
A romantic dinner à deux......

No sense of time – the last ones in the restaurant.........
Although the grand gestures aren't always the most romantic things...........
Sometimes it’s the little things that are the most romantic – a touch here, a look there, a kiss unexpectedly, putting his arms around you while you are stirring a pot of something on the cooker.  
It’s not necessarily the big gestures that are the romance in a relationship especially in a long term relationship. 
It could be something as simple as cutting slices of bread for you before he goes to work for your lunchtime sandwich.
It could be as simple as him always putting the toilet seat down!
It could be placing an extra gift on a branch of the Christmas tree that isn't found until much later in the day.
It is getting rid of the spider in the bathroom before you spot it. 
Making extra time for each other can be one of the most romantic things in the world.
My husband welling up with tears in his eyes watching a soppy movie knowing that he feels comfortable enough around me to allow his emotions to come through.
Laughing so hard with each other that the tears are streaming down your faces and you can't remember what you are laughing at.
Love is.......... ever increasing ripples



  1. Hi Sally, just stopping by from the writers campaign to say hello! Good luck with your blogging journey! =)

    1. Thank you Amanda, I'm very new to blogging (my first day) so I'm still learning my way around things but it's so nice to hear from you.

  2. Your post is a very nice reminder that all the little things are what make up our lives, and to try to make each moment count.
