A Strong Fascination or Enthusiasm

ROMANCE - To court or woo romantically; treat with ardor or chivalrousness; a strong fascination or enthusiasm for something. [Romance week starts here. Click for this week's Bliss Initiatives.]

Part of my definition of romance includes a strong fascination or enthusiasm for things other then Rob and our relationship. When I tried searching with those exact key words a lot of sites about vampires show up. Apparently many people have a fascination with vampires today. Due in large part to the Twilight phenomenon. I do remember my sister had a fascination with fanged teeth when we were teenagers so perhaps this vampire thing is more then just a fad from today. I am more fascinated by fuzzy animals so when I saw this I had to share it since it certainly covers both fascinations.

Cute and creepy at the same time!
Found over at

Anyway I digress, the veiled purpose of this post is to share something that I enthusiastically find fun.

The cool graphic displayed above was designed by me in mere seconds over at Slide where anyone can quickly and easily create visually fascinating slide shows. I made mine from two photos, one which is the cover shot of the Alphabeat single Fascination and the other is a Wordle I made about Romance Week.

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

Here are links to some other wordles I made today.
Another  Romance_week  combination
Rob_and_Kathy_Wedding -which is a wordle made from our entire wedding ceremony, I just popped my .pdf into the create box and voila'!
Rob_and_Kathy_Vows - this is a wordle made from ONLY the vow portion of our wedding ceremony

I'm not sure what exacty I will do with them and/or I may play around some more with them. The romantic possibilities are endless. I may try one made from my 101 reasons I love Rob list that I a working on too... I'll keep you posted!

And here the fun Alphabeats singing Fascination for your enjoyment!
