How you Met


How did you meet your partner?

Where were you, why were you there, what were you doing?

Work out the elements that precipitated the beginning of romance.

Identify that one pivotal event that brought the two of you together.

Celebrate that event every year.

The date doesn’t have to be exact and  you can add elements of your meeting into the celebration.

Someone I know met her future husband when he spilled wine on her at wedding.

To reminisce this one. Dress up go somewhere nice a meal perhaps with a bottle of wine. Fill the glasses and entwine your arms and say, ‘Remember when I slipped and this landed in your lap. I’ll never forget how your annoyance turned to laughter when you saw how mortified I was”

I started to notice my future husband on a mission trip. We could get out some of the photos and talk about how we recognised a passion for the same things and then for each other.

Think about this one and maybe the first time you celebrate your first love you can surprise your partner but after that make it a tradition.

Happy New Year


2012 has begun.

I welcome the New Year. It has the potential to be many things. Good, bad , ugly. I always hope it will be great. I work at making the best of every challenge and adventure.

Don’t make New Years Resolutions they have a bad reputation, they are usually broken.

If you need to change or change something:  just do it as the Nike slogan says. Stick to it and if you fail , pick yourself up dust yourself off and try again.

In the romantic field start planning the surprises for your loved one now. Now don’t be predictable of course Valentines days is coming  and don’t ignore it.

But beat that date and do something in January. For the Northern hemisphere where it might be cold. Light a fire  ( find one if you don’t have one of your own). Cuddle up (kiss) on a rug and dream together. Tell each what is so great about them. Toast marshmallows and feed them to each other.Give each other a foot massage. Let your imagination take you on from here.

Southerners we are in Summer. Get outdoors follow a mutual passion you have. Go for swim after dark, lots of cuddling is mandatory. Go to an outdoor cinema. Explore somewhere or something you haven’t before.

Fall in love all over again in 2012

With the same person. This my challenge to you.

Deeper, longer stronger.

10 Romantic Things To Do When Living Together


Relationships are a little like glaciers; under various pressures, they’re always moving and changing, gathering all sorts of debris. But after some time, they move so slowly, it’s easy to forget they’re there, particularly when you live together. To use a more familiar metaphor, one day your relationship is a wild ride, all loops and corkscrews, and then, out of nowhere, it’s mellowed and straightened out. Actually, it’s worse than that. It’s stagnating.

Hey, it happens. No sweat. Relationships require management, like anything else in your life that’s as big and complex. One way is to inject a little romance. Now, depending on your definition, you may have to redefine romance a little. It shouldn’t always have a direct purpose; in other words, imagine romance as neither a means nor an end. Try to imagine it as something you do for her simply because you love her, and not necessarily to get sex later. Sounds corny, but it’s true nonetheless.

With all that in mind, the home you share with your lady presents a bunch of romantic opportunities to reignite that stagnating relationship. The following suggestions, centered around the element of surprise, should get you started. In devising your own, plan what you do around your girl’s unique tastes. You know her best, so you would know, for example, that she loves chocolate but is currently dieting, or that she hates roses. Use your inside information.

Number 10

Hand her a hot towel


While she’s in the shower or taking a bath, throw her towel in the dryer for a few minutes. When she gets out, present her with the toasty towel. It’s sweet and thoughtful; she’ll love you for it.

Number 9

Give her a massage


She comes home from a horrendous day at work; she’s exhausted and even a little bad-tempered. So what do you do? Offer to give her a massage. Using aromatherapy oils, focus on her neck and back, the areas that tend to tense up under stress and cause aches and pains. You can create a mood by dimming the lights and lighting candles; it creates a more relaxing and romantic environment.

Number 8

Bring her breakfast in bed


A classic gesture, breakfast in bed is the proverbial “oldie but goodie.” Get up early on a Saturday or Sunday morning and prepare breakfast just the way she likes it, with toast, fresh fruit, cinnamon buns, whatever. Then surprise her by serving it to her in bed. Another great way for her to start the day.

Check out these other little gestures that will make her gush to her friends about how sweet and thoughtful you are.

Number 7

Write her romantic notes
The love letter or love note is an amazing thing; little effort is required to write her one, and yet you can express so much. So write her a few creative, unique love notes and leave them in unexpected places around the house. For example, in the morning, tape one to the bathroom mirror or to the coffee machine.

Number 6

Order in
Order in for dinner and have it waiting for her when she gets home. Create a romantic setting by recreating a restaurant feel on the dining room table (or in front of a fire, on the patio or wherever else you think might work), complete with plates, silverware and cloth napkins. For an extra romantic touch, add candles and a small vase with some flowers. Learn how to set a formal table and surprise her with your impeccable taste. Remember: the little details matter most.

Number 5

Start a fire
In the winter, get a fire going in the fireplace (if you have one, obviously). Then, set up some pillows and blankets, and uncork a bottle of wine. If you want to take things to the next level, have a romantic dinner sitting in front of that otherwise uneventful fireplace.

Number 4

Pack her lunch for work
Surprise her by making a lunch for her to take to work. It’s an opportunity to be both thoughtful and romantic, since you can also slip in a love note or a flower. Furthermore, you can buy an individual slice of cake or pie from the grocery store, or some other dessert you know she likes.

Number 3

Show her feet a little tlc
Bad day or not, if she’s been running around, her feet are probably sore. Prepare a foot bath for her and follow it up with a short foot massage. Then, if it feels right, paint her toenails. It might be best to make that last part spontaneous. If, for example, she’s planning to do it herself, you can offer your services. You’ll be surprised at how romantic — even erotic — it can be.

Number 2

Make her feel sexy with some lingerie
Lingerie is win-win. Your girl feels sexy and attractive wearing it, and the benefits for you go without saying. So buy her some nice lingerie and lay it out on the bed for her to find. Don’t buy the sluttiest one you can find, because the point is to make her feel good about herself. Think about what she likes, what she’ll feel good in, then combine that with your own tastes.

Number 1

Draw her a bath
The bathtub is one of the most romantic household locales. Ensure that it is clean, then draw her a hot bath and add bath beads or bubble bath. If all goes well, she’ll invite you to join her.

up the romance

All these romantic gestures will make your woman happy. If you get rewarded in the process, so much the better, but making those rewards your sole motivation can only lead to disappointment. Just try to do it for her, and see what happens; it will probably come back to you.

Menu of Love

A menu for some sweet sweet lovin’, that’s what we’re putting together this time around. One night this week, after finishing up with dinner and getting the dishes squared away, surprise your honey bunny with an after-dinner Menu of Love. Design it to look like a real restaurant menu and list some of their favorite romantic activities for each of the courses. Like some of these for example:

Entree

3 minutes of kissing their neck, stomach, or back
5-minute neck rub
Have them close their eyes and see if they can guess the flavors of candy in your mouth with kisses

Main

A sunset walk
Romantic movie of their choice
Board games by the fire
Their favorite music and a glass of wine

Dessert (here we go)

Full body hot oil massage
Share a candlelit bath
Some of the naughty (you know what they like)

They all sound great, right? Remember your mate is limited to just one item from each course. No piggies! Of course the restaurant is often open for business.

Last Night


I look forward to Fridays. yesterday was a very good one.

I had the day off work which is always great.

Decided to go shopping. Time to update my summer wardrobe. Unfortunately I have put on weight and last years clothes don’t fit.

Came home with some bargains, very happy.

Hubby suggested after we had dropped our son off at Youth we should grab some Fish and Chips and go down to the river. I suggested we go to an award winning fish shop. I bought a yummy lime and coconut grilled fish and he got Mediteranian spices.

We have a beautiful city with a river that snakes its way through the CBD. So we found a lovely spot across from the city lights. We mused on the reflections of the river and talked about beauty and music and joked around. We sat close and kissed and just enjoyed being together. We had two rules say only positive stuff and no business talk. Was close to a perfect way to end the week. Simple and romantic

 

 

 

Jacaranda


A large Jacaranda tree in full bloom.

It is beautiful time of year where I am.

I love purple and the Jacarandas are in bloom. They are magnifcent trees.  Love this line of the poem following “to lightly kiss your face with a hundred million tiny lips.”

My partner would do really well if he decided to pack a picnic and take me to a park with all the beautiful trees.

The Jacaranda Tree

 A Jacaranda tree stands tall, and sways as if to say,
Look! At this magnificence, I’m wearing blue today.
forgive the way I shout aloud, my lack of modesty,
but nowhere in this troubled world is finery like me.

Light rays slide between each leaf, to settle on the tips
to lightly kiss your face with a hundred million tiny lips.
You only have to lift your eyes to greet the filtered sun
a sight I guarantee will warm the heart of everyone.

Though very tall, my leaf is small, its form is one of fern,
large panicles of bluebells swell to trumpet unconcern.
A Bee collecting nectar from an ample deep white throat,
takes flight to join its family, and of its feast to gloat.
Look up to see each fern like leaf, floating up on high,
like footprints of a centipede that stroll across the sky
See how far my branches reach, admire their greenery,
so beautiful and strong, I am the Jacaranda tree.

Anne Beard

Love and Lust


Love comforteth like sunshine after rain,
But Lust’s effect is tempest after sun;
Love’s gentle spring doth always fresh remain
Lust’s winter comes ere summer half be done;
Love surfeits not, Lust like a glutton dies,
Love is all truth, Lust full of forged lies.
 William Shakespeare
