Romantic Gestures

I'm feeling pretty romantic lately. Might have something to do with the blissful weekend I had or it might have something to do with Valentine's Day being a few weeks away. Or it could be that this time of year I just crave all things romantic.

Today I'm thinking back to all the times when my honey surprised me with a little something unexpected...flowers, a card, a sweet phone call, email or text, a little gift and even better a little getaway somewhere wonderful. Don't you just love it when that happens?

Hope you all get to enjoy a little unexpected romance today. xoxo

Love the images (the 3rd image looks just like the buildings where I live in Seville, Spain).
I think that's the key to keeping romance alive; hidden and unexpected romantic gestures. Nit just on high-days and holidays. Gorgeous!

Sunny & Star said...

The words "hopeless romantic" were absolutley meant to describe me.

Could that dress in the first picture be anymore beautiful?

Val said...

BEAUTIFUL!

Connie @ Sogni e Sorrisi said...

Little unexpected surprises are the BEST. M does lots of thoughtful things on a daily basis but he's not the romantic man in the world, so when he does pull something out it's extra special.

I'm with you on the episode. Kind of underwhelming. I guess it's a set up for what's coming?

Random gestures are the best, aren't they? For me the small things work too!
