Hope you all enjoyed Valentine's! Mine was actually a bit quieter than expected but all-in-all it went well.
I stayed inside for the day (had the day off from work), took my time eating meals and did some cleaning. I had the chance to use some delicious-smelling lemon creme lotion that my sis gave me which made me feel special.
I hoped to watch the DVD Up in the Air last night but that didn't quite work out.
A thought that did occur to me on Valentine's is the idea of "romance": What it means and how to add it into one's life in an authentic way. I was thinking of some ideas on how a single woman could add romance to her life without it meaning that she has to go out and search for a partner or wear frou-frou house-slippers.
I'm sure most of us have heard of couples who say that the romance/spark has gone from their relationship. Therefore, being in a relationship doesn't guarantee romance which means that romance is independent of one's relationship status. This then had me thinking of how a single woman could add romance to her life regardless of her relationship status. For example, by slowing down, appreciating herself, wearing something that makes her feel special, making mealtime an "occasion."
What's your idea on romance? Do you cringe or scoff at the word? Do you believe that you can not be in a romantic relationship and still have romance in your life?
