The Truth About Romance

Romance for me is all about atmosphere.  It’s not necessarily defined by luxury and indulgence (although that works too).  It’s more about a warmth that is at once alluring and thoughtful.  And it can be found anywhere … Listening to a sexy mix on Pandora; alone on a cold night next to a roaring fire; at a breathtaking art exhibit; overlooking a misty river; in a tiny shop tucked away in a gritty part of London; or, of course, cozied up with your loved one in a hotel suite for the weekend.  The misconception about romance is that it’s exclusive to those with a black Amex or a wedding band.  It may smack a bit of  “personal growth”, but romance is everywhere.  We just have to recognize it when it’s in front of us.

    I love this post! Especially the image of the Great Hall at the Kennedy Center. I was photographed in front of Kennedy’s bust when I was 2 years old, to promote a coloring book that was raising money for the national symphony Orchestra. That photograph—by a washington post photographer whom I asked to shoot my wedding many years later—still hangs in my house, and it has such special meaning!

      So glad it had special meaning for you! I love that space as well. It’s so magical.
      But the main point here is, let’s see that coloring book promo!
