Hurricane Bonnie, which is bearing down on the North Carolina coast,
got me thinking about the idea below. Athena and I never have to worry
about the lights going out as we have enough candles in our home to
light a small village. Hope you have some on hand too and not just for
emergencies. — Michael

HOME ROMANTIC HOME
If asked to describe what would be a typical romantic occasion,
the majority of people would probably give details of a full moon,
deserted beach, mountain chalet or other beautiful place where two
people could spend some time alone. It just shows how important the
atmosphere or ‘setting’ is to romance.
Likewise many people have the opinion that they have to go
away to those sort of places in order to have a romantic evening
or weekend. That’s simply not practical all of the time. Since we
spend more time at home than anywhere else, it would reason that
we might want to make more of an effort of making our own homes
more “romance friendly.”
Does your home have a fireplace? How often do you use it?
Most fireplaces aren’t extremely efficient but they sure do look
great. People use fireplaces in their homes now for atmosphere –
and not just in the winter. Always have some firewood around
and some pine cones on hand to throw in so the fire has a lot of
romantic “crackle.”
Is there a good supply of candles around? Turn off the lights,
light the candles and presto! you have a romantic setting. Also,
you might want to consider putting a dimmer on the lights in the
dining room. For less than $10 you can transform blinding lights
into a soft romantic glow.
Now the music. How about a CD or tape of thunder and rain?
There are other environmental sounds on tape like waves crashing,
birds singing, jungle noises and crickets chirping. They are a nice
alternative to the traditional “romantic” classical music we are
accustomed to. Put one of those on and instantly the mood in the
room with change.
Invest a little money making your own home a romantic getaway.
It sure beats the expense of going away just to put a little romance
back into your life.
