Romance week is off with an inspired start! For the first time in a while, I actually talked about my blog in public. Thank you to Shannon for asking about it. SO there I was at the park having a talk about romance with all of my mommy friends and we shared some of the cute romantic things we have experienced. It was totally fun. For the most part we discovered that we pretty much leave romance up to our husbands. I think this is about to change!
My big romantic gesture last night was to put cozy new sheets on our bed. This may not seem like all that much but let me tell you freshly laundered, brand new out of the package sheets are a terrific backdrop for romance! This morning I greeted Rob with a heated towel as he got out of the shower. He loves the right out of the dryer feel so this was a little treat tailor made for him even though I was inspired to do so when I read it on the Romantic Lyrics website under their romantic ideas tab. When I said I was going to do something romantic everyday I did not mean I was going to produce a huge romantic extravaganza everyday (although I am working on one for the weekend!) The idea is to cultivate an environment of romance and simple little things like hot towels really do that.
Today I will share some quick links to help you get inspired to do something for your love.

For the last year my fiance and I will send each other a "quickie" to let each other know we are thinking of them or need a hug, or an I love you!.
We page each other and punch in a code which for us is either 1227 ( the date we met 12/27), 214 (valentines), 426(the date we got engaged), or 2142004 (our wedding date). Each is a way to say "I love you".
Look at this fun item! "This is one full year of 'romance with purpose & accountability'!"
