What Is Romance?

We're talking all things romantic!

I have a question - what is that makes a place, season or a moment romantic?  

Whether you're a true hearts and flowers romantic or somebody who thinks they're not romantic - we've all experienced those special moments with a loved one.

But what we each find romantic can vary enormously.

For some people their idea of the perfect romantic getaway might be a five star hotel in a glamorous city. A weekend with your man spent shopping, sightseeing, coffee and croissants outside a chic café, elegant dinners, trips to the theatre and collapsing into a four poster bed with luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets. 

Perhaps escaping to a log cabin in the woods on the shores of a lake, no neighbours for miles around, is more your idea of a perfect romantic escape?  Relaxing on the wooden deck with your significant other and a glass of wine, watching fireworks or the setting sun shimmer across the water  - before retreating indoors to cuddle up in front of a roaring log fire and later snuggling into bed by candlelight.

Now, I have another question for you. Which season do you find to be the most romantic? The scorching heat of summer and lazing decadently on a sun lounger on the beach sipping iced lemonade? Daylight stretching long into the night with dusk only slowly encroaching as midnight approaches. Days when you can throw open all the doors and windows and spend your time in just shorts, T-shirts and sandals.

What about autumn? All those long country walks hand in hand, kicking up the red, yellow and orange leaves as you stroll through the woodlands together. 

Maybe you prefer the cosyness of winter instead? Enveloping yourself in soft wool knitwear and fleece lined boots. Getting all warm and comfy on the sofa with a blanket and the love of your life as the snow falls outside. 

Maybe you think Christmas is the most romantic time of year. Attending the local ceremony when the lights are switched on the village/town/city Christmas tree, singing carols, drinking mulled wine, ice skating in the park.

There are people who pour scorn on the whole log cabin in the snowy woods, paddling in the edge of the sea on a sun kissed beach, candlelight and log fire romance scenarios– saying they’re nothing but a cliché. 

Well, everyone has a right to their opinions, but I can’t help thinking that maybe these things have reached cliché status for one reason – they work and they actually are romantic!

Long live romance, in all its guises!
