I recently learned that my older son had his first school yard romance. (If he knew I was writing this, he'd be absolutely mortified, so let's just keep this between us, shall we?) As school yard romances go, it was over before it started. But before it had ended, he'd given the young lady a poem that had her name in it, flowers, and sang her a song. (Although I had to wonder what song because he only knows how to play AC/DC, some Rush, and a little Deep Purple on his guitar. LOL)

*sigh* My little Casanova!

But, my mind started turning as it usually does and I began to wonder. That young girl now has quite the romantic memories for her first "romance". Would she remember this 5, 10, even 15 years from now?

So I ask you. What is your earliest romantic memory? Mine probably has to be when my husband was stationed in Kosovo during our tenth wedding anniversary. The florist delivered 14 long stemmed roses. Ten red ones (one for each year we'd been married) and four other roses, each a different color that symbolized our four children. Of course, the diamond anniversary band didn't hurt, either. *g*

Your moment doesn't have to include diamonds and flowers, though. If I'd been an archeologist and he'd given me something cool that related to my job that symbolized our first dig, I would've been just as thrilled.

So, I ask you again. What is your most romantic memory?

Take Care,
