What is more romantic than a candlelight dinner?
Not long ago, I had a busy day and was still hard at it when Gwynly got home from work. I eagerly accepted his offer to fix dinner. I’m not into cooking, so his willingness to take on this task made my day.
When Gwynly told me supper was ready, I was in for a surprise. He’d lit every candle on the table. Since we both like candles, there are quite a few. Lighting them takes a while, so we don’t do it that often.
Dining in the warm glow of the candles turned a simple chicken dinner into a special occasion. I hadn’t expected Gwynly to make such a romantic gesture, but I sure enjoyed his efforts on my behalf. He scored some serious mush points that night. 🙂
In the days since, I realized that making time for romance in the midst of our busy schedules is important. Rest assured I’ll be lighting those candles more frequently.
