Self Romancing


I know we are all going to give and get something nice today from our loved ones,
But it's also nice to do a little bit of self-romancing,
Take the time to do something you hadn't done for you in a while,
Do you take showers for the sake of expedience,
Then soak in fragrant bubbles and oils....while sipping on a favorite, colorful beverage,
Make sure the lights are low and the fragrant candles are burning,
Is it your normal thing to only eat salads at lunch,
Then make sure you treat yourself to something really calorie-laden and luscious,
I am thinking Ice Cream Sundae with toasted pecans, walnuts, sweet black cherries, chocolate shavings and real whipped cream...
Or if you normally only read serious stuff,
Find a lovely romantic read and get lost in the pages of the book,
With your feet up, dressed in your most comfortable outfit,
Try this,
Stay in bed with the covers up to your neck, with soft music playing (Sade, maybe)
while you do nothing but lie there, thinking of nothing of any importance,
Now all of you know this sounds mighty indulgent,
And isn't that what romance is all about indulging the senses,
And spending time with someone you love...
And real love starts with self love....

Happy Valentine's Day.
I don't have a boyfriend right now and really don't have any plans with anyone, so I'll be treating myself to a movie and chicken fetticine alfredo from Olive Garden.

Olive Garden sounds real good to me, and a movie, especially in the middle of the day is one of my favorite indulgences...

That's what I'm talking about, sis! I can't remember the last time I just lounged in a bubble bath. I might have to do a little self romancing today.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Lady Gwyneth,
Bubbles are the bomb and as my Little Sis, said, Carol's Daughter's products are a delight...

Having to postpone our Valentine's Day celebration until this weekend due to "distance"....I am gonna do just what you suggested this evening!

Self love is the best kind of love...
