Best Romantic . . .

Happy Monday, everyone.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and that today's post will get you thinking romantic-al thoughts throughout the week.

This is a list I borrowed from 1001 Ways to be Romantic, but I substituted the book answers with my own. I also went over the list with my hubby before writing this, and it got us in a warm, fuzzy mood together.

So here they are.

Best Romantic Gift: The gift of Understanding

Best Romantic Present: Sapphire Earrings

Best Romantic Car: 1965 Mustang Convertible (my dream car)

Most Romantic Comic Strip: For Better or For Worse

Best Romantic TV Show Ever: Eli Stone

Most Romantic City In the World: Barcelona, Spain (Disclaimer: I have only traveled outside the U.S. once, on a cruise, and none of our excursions were that romantic. This is the city I would most like to visit with my husband if we ever have the opportunity.)

Most Romantic City In the U.S.A.: New York

Best Romantic Color: Blue . . . my favorite color.

Most Romantic Broadway Musical: Phantom of the Opera (This was the same answer as in the book. I've never seen a Broadway musical live, only those made into movies, but this is definitely one of my favorites.)

Best Romantic Movie: Return to Me

Best Romantic Actress: Audrey Hepburn

Best Romantic Actor: Cary Grant

Best Romantic Hotel: Renaissance Dallas Hotel

Best Romantic Voice (Male): My Husband (When he first wakes up in the morning, and his voice is deep with sleep.)

Best Romantic Voice (Female): Kathleen Turner

Best Romantic Song: La Vie En Rose

Take a little time with your spouse this week to make a list of your favorite romantic things. Or just take some time and make out with your honey. Either way, you'll be glad you did, and it will definitely put a different kind of sizzle into an already scorching summer!



  1. I like your list and the advice to couples to make their own. I'd have to differ with you on the Mustang though. 71 was the year :) What about best romantic book? That's a whole different arena to explore. Also, best romantic poem would have to be Recuerdo, by Edna St Vincent Millay.

  2. Thanks for commenting, Ben. I went with the '65 Mustang because I have visions of the Beach Boys playing on the radio (Don't Worry, Baby; God Only Knows; Surfin' USA) with the wind in my hair. But I know my Dad would agree with you on the '71.

    I have so many romantic books I like, I couldn't begin to pick best. For best romantic poem, I'd actually go with one of Shakespears' Sonnets: Number 116.
