The Creative kind of Romance

April 28, 2010 | Comment9 comments - join the party! |

I have been busy around the house, with a shop and teaching at two different schools. I don’t really have the time to create new things like I want to. My baby belly even has me moving slower. I have a few dolls just waiting to be made, and a lot of ideas for more. My brain often creates much faster than my hands can.

I have been wanting however to make a doll with a new feel.

I was telling my husband this, complaining maybe. ha ha

My husband, like many, was a bit more romantic in the early years. As the years have gone on and life changes, the romance changes. I don’t get “just because” flowers as often.

I did come home from work a week or so ago to something very romantic. The house was clean, the kids were fed, dinner was ordered……and this

My husband had been thinking about me. He sketched me his idea for a new doll. THAT is love. I love that man, and I love that he thinks about me when I’m gone. Sometimes, I think he doesn’t hear me, but he obviously does. He even thinks of me with his creative mind. I can’t wait to bring it to life. Now, if i could just teach him to sew. 😉

This book he sketches in, was a gift I gave to him in 2001, I even added in a pocket for loose sketches and put in one of my favorite verses.(I thank my God every time I remember you. Philippians 1:3)
He still uses it, pretty neat. (yes, I’m a nerd)
This is the romance of two creative people. ha ha

On Monday, I also came home to these….. So I got “just because” flowers as well.

I hope you have a little romance in your life, even if its not the typical kind.

that is so sweet. My husband always jokes when he sees a man with flowers "Whoa, he must have messed up!" Nice, right? My husband does clean and I really appreciate that. He also always encourages me to go out with my girlfriends which I think is nice.

What a lovely relationship you two have. I think I love the surprise romantic moments like that even more because you appreciate them so much.

My partner is taking me to a concert next week – he really isn't a fan of the music but he knew I really REALLY wanted to go. So even though it's the day after the election results 9which he will have stayed up all night to watch so will be knackered) he's bought the tickets and we are having a date night for the first time in 3 years! Romance, just love it 🙂

Aww, how sweet! Jake does the same thing. He will draw pillow ideas on paper 🙂 Just yesterday he used a banana, taco bell hot sauce packets and eggs to spell I love you in the fridge 🙂

Pretty flowers!
