Love this. You’ll need a tissue.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
If I ever get married again, I totally want an officiant like this.
Another tissue-worthy story from CBS Sunday Morning.
It’s Valentines Day.
Pardon me but I think it’s the stupidest day of the year. I totally think it’s a made up holiday that some gal came up with to make her husband/boyfriend/whatever buy her stuff between Christmas and her birthday.
Yes, I feel this way and I’m not going to apologize for it. However, I will still take whatever my husband chooses to give me. AND I will give him something in return. I’m not that cold. 😉
Since it’s all about love today I thought I’d write about my 5 favorite movie kisses of all time. These are just my all time favorite kisses in movies. And NO, Twilight is not on this list.
Spiderman and Mary Jane (Spiderman)
He’s upside down! It’s in the rain! That is so hot.
Paul and Holly Golightly (Breakfast at Tiffany’s)
Yeah. Another rain kiss. Sexy!
Scarlet and Rhett (Gone With The Wind)
A classic duo. Scarlett, just admit you lurve him.
Sam and Josie (Never Been Kissed)
I loved this movie. So sweet. And when Sam showed up… AWW
Jonathan and Sarah (Serendipity)
Kissing in the snow.
What’s your favorite movie kiss?
Hi, everyone! I’m pleased to host fellow FF&P chapter mate, Sharon Buchbinder today! I think you’ll find her post wildly entertaning. She’s talking about the connection between good food and good sex so pay attention. It could be your relationship saver! 😉
Food and Sex by Sharon Buchbinder
Do I have your attention now?
Is there a connection between good food and good sex? The answer is a resounding yes, according to sources as diverse as Discovery Health and the Social Issues Research Center. Food is part of the dating and mating ritual across all cultures. Both food and mating are essential to the survival of the species. Feeding your mate is not only sexy, but also a way of saying, “I will take care of you forever.”
Some people may go a bit overboard combining food and sex, as this fun loving couple did. But, hey, it’s their groceries, who am I to criticize? One super food that has been strongly linked to super sex is chocolate. Yes, dare I say it? Women are programmed to love it because it gives us pleasure and makes us feel happy and sexy. Consider giving yourself and your mate the gift of chocolate–in the bedroom. Be imaginative. Play with your food!
In An Inn Decent Proposal in my anthology, Killer Kisses, Genie King is a Culinary Institute of America trained chef who is piqued by her high school heart throb, Jim Rawlings, when he tells her that he’s sure she’s “a solid cook.” Furious, she retorts, “Tell you what, Mr. Critic, you come to my house for dinner tomorrow night. My food makes men go weak at the knees.” She proceeds to seduce him with her sensual cooking. Starting with a chef’s amuse-bouche and ending with a decadent dessert in the bedroom, Genie brings Jim to his knees and makes him beg for more.
Here’s an excerpt from An Inn Decent Proposal to whet your appetite.
I’ve been having a time on deciding what to blog about. I’m super busy at work and the kid keeps me hoping on the weekends. I am writing off and on (mostly off, sadly) but the story is still exciting to me and I’m really starting to enjoy the characters quite a lot.
So anyway… I didn’t know what to blog about and I started to think about my life. Shocker, I know. My life is not all that interesting but every now and then I get a curve ball that I never saw coming.
I was dating this guy who was in the restaurant business and, well, if you’ve ever dated someone like that than you know how challenging that relationship can be. We had a great time together but he also lived an hour (plus) away. So. Not only did we have a long distance relationship (this is DFW – everything is long distance), but he was a single dad and a restaurant owner.
After nearly a year of canceled dates and frustration, I finally called it quits. It’s still painful because he was an awful lot of fun but you know, fun and frolic can only go so far. At least as far as I’m concerned. There was no real hint of a future (in my opinion) and I just wanted to know if it was even possible.
Right about the same time as I was breaking up with the restaurant guy, a really good friend (yes, a boy) had asked me to go to the movies. So, thinking it was only a strictly platonic date, I went. We had a grand time and, since he hadn’t seen the house since I moved in, wanted to come by after for a visit. Well, things took a turn after that and let’s just say there was some smooching involved.
He was my date to the Loreena McKennitt concernt last month and he comes over about once a week to watch Moonlight with me. He’s very sweet and kind. He makes me laugh and we have a nice time together.
So a few days ago, I had some trees trimmed and instead of hauling them off, the guys piled them at the curb in front of my house. Of course, the trashmen wouldn’t pick them up (even though the limbs were bundled) and so I was in a quandry as to what to do. And you know what? My knight in shining armor came to the rescue. He hauled off those limbs for me and then told me he’d be back to mow my backyard (since I’ve been a bit sick and under the weather with allergies lately).
The little things. That’s what matters most, I think. It was just that small gesture of removing those limbs (an eyesore!) from the front of my house and disposing of them for me. I think I’m in love. 😉
Just goes to show you, a man doesn’t have to have a lot of money to make a woman happen. All it takes is hauling off tree limbs.
