Did you miss my writing prompt last week? I didn’t get one out as I have been sick lately with some sort of crud and then strep, but am all better now. I am on to bigger and definitely better things!
Since this is Romance Week I thought for this week’s prompt, I would answer a few questions on romance.
What does the word ‘romance’ say to me?
Romance to me is purposely saying to someone ‘I love you’. It doesn’t have to be flowers or chocolates, although I like those things, and I prefer the chocolates 🙂 I like pretty things; like hearts, flowers, lace, ribbons, rainbows, etc. Romance evokes a feeling of being loved and cared for, of being remembered.
What I don’t like about Valentine’s Day though is the expectation that we have to say ‘I love you’ on one particular day. I think like Christmas, it has become over commercialized and a money maker for card and chocolate companies.
Anyway, on to some more romance questions:
What is my favorite romantic movie?
It’s an oldie, but goody called Charade, starring Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. I don’t remember where I discovered it, but it’s one of my favorite movies and one of a few that I’ve seen more than once. My hubby actually bought me a copy for Christmas years ago (that’s romantic–when someone gets you something you like).
My favorite flower?
I love carnations and any color they come in. I like roses also, but not as much as carnations.
My favorite type of chocolate?
Russell Stover truffles. Mmmm mmmm! Another favorite is Hershey’s dark chocolate kisses.
What about you? What does romance say to you?
Happy romance week!
