It’s that time again. The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge hosted by Long and Short Reviews. Today’s topic is: Most romantic memory
So, this is actually tough because I guess it matters what you consider “romantic”. Is it a grand gesture? A fancy proposal? Flowers? I dated a guy for a couple of years who was amazingly romantic… he would write poems for me and put together these amazing trips to do unique things. He got us incredible tickets to a show in San Francisco that was preceded with a meal at a super ritzy restaurant, etc., etc.
My husband, OTOH, proposed by handing me the ring and saying, “Here.” Be still my heart… lol… still, it seems to have worked out since we’ve been married more than 20 years now.
But you know what he does that makes my heart swell?
In the dark winter mornings, when I head out for my walks with my headlamp on, he turns on the porch light for me. When my car is covered in sand and salt, he takes it to the car wash without being asked. He defends our daughter against all nay-sayers. When he watches me cut corners on my things, he surprises me with something I need but didn’t want to buy for myself (most recently a warm jacket for my winter morning walks). He changes the oil in my car, he works 60 hour weeks … he sacrifices for us at the expense of himself regularly.
And really, what’s more romantic than that? I have a husband who’d throw himself in front of a bullet for us, and I’d take that over roses any day.
