My husband and I like to tease each other, and on more than one occasion he’s accused me of not being romantic. He’s even gone as far as to say, “Aren’t you the romance writer?”
What? Mwah, not romantic? How dare he!
Well, actually he has a point. We’ve been married for over twenty years. I’ll be the first to admit I get lazy in the romance department. I don’t want to take him for granted, but the non-stop rush of each day tends to sap the motivation out of me. Nothing sounds better than flipping through a magazine or playing a few rounds of Candy Crush after a long day.
Let’s face it, romantic gestures take effort. And sometimes they’re kind of scary. We wonder if they’re silly or will be appreciated. The expense, even a small amount, can feel not worth it.
I’ve really inspired you to go out and get romantic after that speech, huh? Just keeping it real…
But wait, I’m not discouraging romantic gestures. I think they’re vital to a relationship. Every time my husband goes out of his way to let me know he cares, my heart smiles and I get a rush. It never gets old! And I want to reciprocate.
I’m keeping my eyes open for little things I can do to let my hubby know I think he’s the most incredible guy on the planet. If I can find time to put away the laundry each week, I can certainly find time to show him I care.
What are your favorite romantic gestures? Please share! I need all the help I can get!
Have a terrific Thursday!
