So I think growing up we are all jaded to romance. We watch When Harry met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, My best friends wedding and a billion other chick flicks and think romance is a certain kind of act. To me romance is the little things, moments and gestures that make up a lifetime. A and I have not been dating all that long but he is so romantic in ways that I never thought I would consider….
Holding hands in the car while listening to our song
How last weekend while I was at a clients trunk show, and he went grocery shopping to make ME dinner he also picked up a bag of my favorite gummy bears
How one night after talking on the phone and saying goodnight he sent me this
How he always gets two spoons for our one bowl of cookies and cream and USUALLY lets me have the bigger pieces of cookies
How he ALWAYS without fail opens my car door no matter what
When I asked him what he was most excited for regarding our trip to San Diego he said “the little things like walking through the airport with you and knowing its our first trip together”
How he always makes sure I have everything I need at his apartment be in a giant box of goldfish crackers or my favorite wine
He plugs in my phone charger when he see’s its running low.
I could go on and Im not trying to brag I just honestly want to remember this for the future. I want to look back and remember how wonderful he is, if I am ever pissed off at him which is never.
I hope you all appreciate the little things the romantic stuff that has nothing to do with flowers, chocolates, or extravagant dates. Romance can be found anywhere and in the words of Hugh Grant in Love Actually…
