 How Shopping Correlates with Dating and Relationships

I love, love, love shopping…well, for almost anything! I can never be trusted with a credit card. 😉 Most of the time I resist temptation, but now and then, especially if I have some extra money on my hands, I indulge in one of my hobbies – shopping for clothes, or even books.

But whether you’re browsing online or in the store, shopping for clothing items is a whole other animal. At least with a book, you can be sure you will usually end up a satisfied reader. The only issue, for me at least, might be a bunch of glaring grammatical errors, or so much head-hopping that I get fictional whiplash.

Shopping for clothes, however, is a different story.

“The Other Side of Our Dreams” – a poem

A new ‪romantic‬ ‪poem‬ on the ‪I Love Romance Blog!

I Love Romance Blog

The Other Side of Our Dreams

 

Do you sleep?

Do you dream?

At night, do you sleep in hopes of meeting me when you wake?

Do you dream, dream of me the way I dream of you?

woman-dreaming

Do you pray?

Do you pray you’ll see my face? To hold me tight?

Because I think of you every night…

Every day, of course, but each night many times before I sleep.

beautiful-woman-sitting-bed-portrait-home-looking-camera-61751898

It’s not because I’m lonely.

When the day’s demands are winding down, the night gets so quiet you can only hear your heartbeat, the soft thump aligned with crickets humming in the darkness.

I think of you, imagine your face, your voice blessing me, your arms surrounding me.

I don’t think of you because I’m lonely and I need someone, just anyone.

You’re in my thoughts, always.

You’re the missing part of me I didn’t know about until I…

“Blessed” – a poem

A new love poem!

I Love Romance Blog

Blessed

 

It’s beyond words what I feel for you,

but I always try to capture it.

I can only say I feel…

blessed.

wordblessed

The way you draw me close,

holding me tight,

I’ve never felt so safe with anyone else.

I can only feel…

blessed.

 tumblr_mq5s6a3UbO1rjajhdo1_500

The way you speak those words,

professing your love,

saying you’ll always take care of me,

I can only feel…

blessed to have you.

dil

Looking into your eyes,

a fascinating mix of brown and green,

the way you kiss me and my eyes drift closed,

I can only feel…

blessed.

couple-kissing-bed

When you smile at me or give me that gaze full of affection,

the way we work so well together,

even when we link hands and they fit so perfectly,

I can only feel…

blessed beyond measure.

Our hearts,

our souls connect,

our bodies were made for each other.

I can only feel…

“Everything to Me” – a poem

I Love Romance Blog

Everything to Me

Every time you leave, I yearn more for you.

When we’re apart, nothing feels right until we’re reunited.

I could spend a lifetime learning the many facets of you and I’d never get tired.

I can see the love in your eyes and I reciprocate it.

 close-eye-contact

You show your feelings in so many ways…

You take care of me,

you listen,

you worship my body completely.

db9fb2133c156aac40c5eb73e783765a

I could never ask for a more perfect love.

It means everything to me…

 942897_512564375476032_150527136_n

Real love isn’t perfect…

It has its occasional hiccups,

a mild argument or difference of opinion,

the wait to be together,

to become one in a perfect union,

dil

our minds,

our souls,

our hearts together.

But, that’s what makes life interesting.

val_my-heart-is-yours-forever

We are similar in many ways,

connecting beyond the visible,

even speaking in unison now and then followed by a laugh,

finishing each other’s…

New 5 Star Amazon Review for Upon Your Return!

A new review for UYR!

I Love Romance Blog

Just found this review on Amazon for UYR, book one of the Heiresses in Love Series. Yay!  🙂

5.0 out of 5 starsMy Kind of Main Character, October 16, 2014
This review is from: Upon Your Return (Kindle Edition)
I wanted to read this book after practically devouring the second book in the Heiresses in Love series, Upon Your Honor. I had to know more about the relationship between Gabriel’s parents. I mean, it was a given considering what we are told in the second book. It was enough to tide me over, but there was a nagging sensation in the back of my head. If someone gives me a tidbit, I long for the whole story. And here it is!

So, little bit of info about me…I am a redhead. Because of this, I always feel a sort of kindred closeness to characters, more specifically…
