August is Romance Awareness Month #romance

August is Romance Awareness Month. Who knew? (wink) A little romance goes a long way. Interesting how August is 6 months after Valentines, another romantic holiday. I guess Cupid must realize we need a boost.

Let's face it, romantic gestures rarely go out of style. Girls love to receive flowers. Chocolates melt our hearts. Getaways to the spa invigorate the body and while these gestures maybe "typical" ways to show our romantic feelings, I think it's  those gestures that aren't so typical which really touch our hearts.

Reaching out, holding hands, offers encouragement. Sharing a meal, a date movie, even a walk around the park can create romance.

Now I mentioned the giving of flowers and chocolates, which usually appeal to women – what strikes at a man's romantic heartstrings? What gestures or overtures do they appreciate? My husband enjoys spending "quality time" with me.

I'd love to hear your thoughts. How do you keep the romance going in the summer?

(Challenge: Write a Haiku about summer romance and I'll post your poems in an upcoming newsletter.)

5 Stars, AngelE, Amazon Reader:
The story was compelling and not boring, which is often a stereotype of sweet romances. I would recommend this short sweetie of a story. Good job, author.
