The Symbolism of “Baby”
The Art of Sighing



For my husband's and my first anniversary, a couple of good friends picked us up and took us to a hilltop where they set up a table with checkered tablecloth, napkins, wineglasses, and served us dinner (with coffee and dessert). It was really nice; we were able to watch the sunset (except I didn't like them standing there watching us eat).


My high school boyfriend was probably the most romantic guy ever. He did not have a penny, but he sure knew how to make me feel like the only girl in his world. He used to sing to me..and had an amazing voice. One year he gave me a ring and a Valentine's card where he proceeded to write our names in every single little heart on the card (and there were many). He went away to college before me and would send me letters that I still hold on to today...often they included poetry. I could go on and on. The most beautiful thing about all of it was..that it wasn't just words, he was as decent as the words/songs/cards...he said/sang/signed....get it? Ah..the memories..thanks for helping me relive them Laura.:)

JC, what a lovely gesture by friends.

Gwen, memory lane, a nice place to visit but you can't live there.

Me, could it be having two men cry over me? Is seeing a strong man reveal himself sensual? Does it make me feel needed and strenghtened and does that give a sensual quality? I guess, since that's what I'm thinking about.

I came home from work one night to find my Christmas tree assembled, apartment clean and fridge stocked with sushi and wine from my boyfriend in college. I had spent the night before in the ER with him, and that was his thank you. I was impressed.

My husband is more an every day kind of romance. Anytime I want something frivilous or unsure he just says, "Whatever makes you happy, Pumpkin." Makes me smile every time. Well, there was that whole Vegas elopement thing. That was okay.

And now I'm a little embarassed to admit, I'm not sure if I've ever been all that romantic. Cooking big meals, lighting candles and wearing lingerie is normally my go-to, or a cake from scratch. That's always a winner.

Liz, knowing how to receive the romance is important too, because it makes him want to keep romancing you.
