Are you a True Romantic?

This post will remain at the top until June 1, 2007 - scroll down for current post.

Update: Scroll down to find the links to everyone who has entered a post for this romantic contest. There are some really good reads here. I am very impressed with the quality of entries. There is still time to enter, if you'd like to particpate comment before 12:00 PM central time with a link to your post.

I was reading my DH's blog and I was surprised to see he too had written a blog about our upcoming 18th Wedding Anniversary. I was very moved to see he had written a poem. If you are in to poetry stop by and read it!

He tapped a bit deeper into some of the coincidences and oddities of our getting together, some I had forgotten about altogether. I guess we were destined to be together. I'm not even going to try to understand it, but I know it was destiny.

It's funny because after 18 years of marriage their are times I know I've complained 'you aren't romantic enough' or 'when was the last time you wrote me a poem?' I know what a hag hey! I am so blessed to be married to a man who can put his words to paper, write a poem or a song and isn't embarrassed to get on his knees and sing it to me.

I'm in a romantic mood so I thought why not ask all the blogging friends out there what was the most romantic thing anyone ever did for you? Or, are you the romantic? If you have a true romantic side and you have a story to share or a poem I'd love to read it. Don't be shy, I know you all have a good story to share with us. Do you want to be the winner of this cool badge for your site?If so write a romantic post, whether it's something that someone else did for you or if you were the one being the romantic! I love to read a good romance story. Then comment here with the link to your post so I can come by and read it. Make sure to link back to me at the end of your post so others can have a chance to let their romantic side shine for us all. I'll accept entries up until June 1, 2007 at 12:00 p.m. and announce the True Romantic winner by 4:00 p.m. the same day.

    My daughter had severe night terrors until we had her allergy tested and discovered that she had food allergies...rice, strawberries, & beef:0
    We changed her diet, and she's been sleepin' like a baby ever since.
    Happy Anniversary!
