romance!The above photo is a napkin i just found in a box this weekend that was given to Jeff and I right after we got married.
The night of the reception that we had at my parents house one of my moms friends had taken a sampling of food from that night and put it on a tray with flowers and had it sitting on our bed with this napkin beside it. I have never forgotten this and actually gave someone a bedside tray table for a wedding gift with this inscribed on the table. I loved it. Jeff and I were so hungry and i remember sitting there eating everything on the plate and laughing and kissing.
This week Jeff worked over 100 hours. he came home from work this morning with two consecutive sleepless nights, unshaven, exhausted and the first thing he did when he walked in was kiss me. He then put all three girls in the bike trailer and rode them around the neighborhood so i could have 15 minutes to myself.
12 years ago when i married him i thought i knew what being in love with him was and that giving me flowers was romantic. It has taken me a long time to realize that Jeff's way of showing me he loves me is by the silent acts of service ... and the flowers and chocolate are just the icing on the cake.
Jeff & Kristi,Keep passion and romance alive in your marriage for many years - forever by eating raspberries and chocolate mint brownies in bed without napkins and under the covers. You enjoy life and live spontaneously. - A bed without crumbs is a marriage without romance.
