Isn't it Romantic?

"And what's romance?  Usually, a nice little tale where you have everything as you like it, where rain never wets your jacket and gnats never bite your nose, and it's always daisy-time."  D.H. Lawrence

Like many ladies, I am a sucker for Romance.  Especially this time of year.  I wanted to share some of the things that make my heart go Pitter Patter.

Favorite Romantic Song:  "The Kiss" from the Last of the Mohicans movie soundtrack.  Sigh.

Romantic Books:  Anything by Lynn Kurland.  She writes clean, funny and uber romantic stories involving Time Travel, castles, Scotland, and manly heroes who wear swords and know how to use them.  I recently finished Dreams of Stardust and am still sighing.

Romantic Decorating: check out these lovely decor ideas from French Larkspur.  Oh MY.

Romantic Movies: Emma from 1999, Pride and Prejudice (A&E version, of course), Sense and Sensibility (1999).  Love these.

Miss Munchkin's Favorite Romantic Movies:  all of the above plus... While You were Sleeping, The Love Come Softly series, Though None Go With Me and A Walk to Remember.

Perfume: I've already blogged about this so just go here.

And I'm still waiting for my kiss in the rain.  

So, what makes your heart go Pitter Patter?

A knowing look. A song that gives me goose bumps. A movie that makes me smile and want the love story of my own.
It's good to feel love.

The tears of a new father, seeing his baby for the first time...although that becomes a vicious cycle. :)

Watching your man stand up for what is right and speaking with strength. Not harshly but firmly, with wisdom.

The Park Wife said...

When my husband looks at me with the look that says he is absolutely, positively, 100 % in love with me and can not live without me.

How about The Notebook? I cry every time I watch it...the ending never changes, I know what is going to happen. But, I cry anyway.
