Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge where for the month of April we post everyday except Sundays, corresponding to each letter of the alphabet. I’ve chosen to blog about keeping the romance alive in a relationship along with ideas for married couple dates. Each post will also have a romantic song for you to listen to whilst you read.
Today’s song is the wonderful Lionel Richie and Shania Twain – Endless Love.
R, is of course for romance and in 2016 Romance was my A to Z post, but today it’s also for reality. Romance isn’t something that just happens magically without any thought or planning, the reality is that it takes effort to keep it alive. The reality is also that romance isn’t all hearts and roses, it can be found in the simplest of moments and gestures.
It may be sitting in a cafe, looking at your special person, and realising how lucky you are to have that person in your life…..
Or smiling every time you look at that silly little gift, like my pink kangaroo that my beloved found in a charity shop – I absolutely love it.
By thinking that romance is only in the big gestures you put too much pressure on yourself and set yourself up for disappointment. The reality is that romance happens in so many little moments throughout your life.
Pick a flower, buy a favourite chocolate bar, give a foot massage, and the list goes on.
Today’s quote is from the very wise Dr Seuss:
Pamela & Ken
