The Many Faces of Romance

I have had a lovely time this week reading your comments regarding what "Romance" means to you. I thought I would take a moment to share what "Romance" means to me.

It seems we all agree that Romance has many faces. It is hearts and flowers and gifts and hugs and kisses. But it is also more subtle. It is a glance, a whisper, a caress. It is the warm glow of a memory, it is the butterflies in your stomach feeling of expectation, it is the exhaustion born of fiery passion.

That is not to say that if you are alone, there is an absence of Romance in your life. Romance is a state of mind. You can live a romantic life of solitude by surrounding yourself with beauty. One dictionary definition of romance involves that which is fanciful or imaginitive. We can have Romance in our lives through our music and our interior design.

Take heart, Romance is all around you!

I of the most Romantic places when alone is a little window seat, curled up with a good book and a worn but lovely quilt :-)
