Romantic Settings

I am the assistant newsletter editor for my local Romance Writer's of America group. This month we asked our members to share the most romantic setting they have been to or could imagine. As I pondered the assignment I thought about all the romantic spots my husband has taken me to - beautiful beaches and mountain retreats - I realized that nothing is so romantic to me as being at home with my sweetheart.
Here are a few of the times Stan makes my heart flutter:
Him on the floor wrestling with our boys.
The smile on his face when he walks in the back door.
Watching him vacuum - you can't get more romantic than that!
Giving goodbye or hello kisses.
Seeing my boys light up when it's their turn for kisses.

What about you? Please share your favorite romantic setting.

My husband washed dishes last evening. I told him that nothing could be more romantic than that.

When they care enough to do those special things that give you a little free time, I call it romantic.

I loved this post, Laurean. I was thinking just that--the beach, etc...but when it's all said and done, home is where the heart is. :)

Thanks Laurean and Terry.
I think my husband really shows his love doing these menial tasks because I know he doesn't love them (who does) but my favorite thing of all is seeing how much he loves our boys.
Thanks for commenting,
