Who Says Romance Is Dead?


Did you add a little romance back into your relationship this weekend? Hallmark holiday or not, I was able to share some romance with my husband that I will remember for a long time to come! My husband has maybe one romance bone in his body so, this makes it extra special.

The weekend before Valentine's, I asked him if we could do a date night. We set it up and were able to have a lovely evening. Valentine's day, we had both the kids so I made a special dinner of rib eye steak and shrimp cocktail(he likes it, I don't) and scrumptious mint chocolate chunk brownies! We watched Chronicles of Narnia and spent time hanging out with the kids.

The kicker, he asked me to paint a picture with him. Something we could do together. Wha....???? I was surprised to say the least, and then thought it was just.too.sweet! Artistically it may not be all that but, I will be keeping this picture in our room to remember a time when we both did something together and enjoyed working as a team. We don't do it often enough anymore and I must say, we are at our best when we work as a team!
I also got a little unmentionable too! Another first in our relationship. I don't care if you do something together on a holiday or you do it when you carve out the time but, honestly, it's sooo important and always brings us closer together when we make the extra effort!

I have to brag on the Hubs because it only comes around once every so often. =) Above is picture of said "project". It's gonna go in my room to remind me that we do have the ability to be romantic. heh

Wow! That's neat mel! Gary has no romantic bone at all. That's ok... Maybe he'll acquire one before I die. =)
