Tomorrow is Valentine's Day!
What is the most romantic gesture you have ever received, or that you have done for someone else?
When I began dating my now husband, I told him the most romantic song I ever heard was Broken Arrow, by Rod Stewart. He gives his love a bottle of rain, collects it as it falls from the heavens, natural and simple and so lovely
On the day before our first Valentine's day, James went shopping for bottles The female clerks at the stores were still talking about how romantic it was weeks later He had them all searching for a simple bottle with a stopper to fill with rain (He told them the story of the song) They finally found one with fragranced liquid in it One clerk went to the bathroom, emptied and cleaned it for him He went out into the rain and filled it
On Valentine's Day he took me on a picnic in the forest to roast hot dogs over a campfire (my idea of fun, am a simple girl) The rain came again and drowned our fire We ate soggy hot dogs, then he produced a cd player, tucked it under some trees to stay dry We danced to Broken Arrow in the rain A perfect day! Rain in a bottle, rain falling around us, as we danced in the woods
I want to hear what is romantic in your lives, what gestures say I Love You
