Let me count the waysWhile reading Stef Feagan's fun and fabulous Ten Tips for Rekindling Romance, I began to think about my "romantic" relationship with my husband. The conclusion I reached--again--was the one my husband and I always agree on: we don't have a romantic relationship. We're not romantics, either of us.
Now before you break out the violins, let me explain that we're very happy in our practical little world (and we'll be celebrating our thirtieth wedding anniversary in a few months). Sure, we eat at candlelit tables, but we're usually so caught up in our conversations that we don't notice the atmosphere. If I want flowers, I buy them myself. The last box of candy in our house was a joint purchase made during one of our Napa Valley jaunts, and we agreed it was a pleasant change in the dessert routine.
Stef's ideas were great, though, and I have to admit we practice number ten on her list several times every day. I'm tempted to give one or two of the other items a try. We may not end up feeling any more romantic, but we'll probably have a lot of fun!
