… after years of Disney, fairy stories and Hollywood movies where the girls always get a ‘happy-ever-after’ I thought that romance meant there was a knight in shining armour, or Prince Charming, with big romantic gestures ready to sweep a girl off her feet and ride off into the sunset of ‘happy-ever-afters’.
But you know what?
I don’t want sunbursts and marble halls – to quote Anne of Green Gables.
The most romantic thing for me is the most precious commodity anybody owns … time!
Just spending time with that special someone is worth more than any amount of a flash extravagance.
And when you are spending time with someone – even if it’s just a few hours, you can almost make time stop, so it feels like for ever.
It’s the simple things that mean the most.
– Long kisses.
– Talking about anything and everything.
– Walks at sunset.
– Holding hands so that you don’t know where your hand ends and theirs starts.
– Listening to music in the candlelight.
Romance doesn’t have to cost the earth.
Sometimes the simplest things have a way of making you feel like everything is … magic 😉
