I resolve to....

Be Romantic



Leave but a kiss in the cup
and I'll not look for wine.
~Ben Jonson, To Celia

My final resolution is to be more romantic....

I didn't know how in the world I was going to photograph that.


so~
Last night we were eating an Italian meal and I like to serve
sparkling grape juice in our "fancy" glasses with a meal like this.

{We don't actually drink alcohol because of our religious beliefs}

anyway....

my daughter says

Look Mom...there's a heart on your cup.

It was left behind from the fizzy bubbles.

Now that is romantic.

Maybe it's a reach~
but we all saw it.

:)


It's so easy to get caught up in the everyday have-to-do jobs
and forget to show our spouse how much we love them in special ways....
a little love note hiding in a lunch box....
a surprising kiss in the pantry....

I resolve to work harder to remember.

My cousin's wife always tucked love notes in her husband's brief case and around the house for him. I always thought that was neat!

Loved this, Chas...
