It’s the Little Things…
Continuing on the Love is Love Blog Tour, I want to thank Kool Queer Lit and Guys Like Romance Too for allowing me to be here today. Since we just had the supposedly most romantic holiday of them all on the 14th, St. Valentine’s Day, it reminded me of all the little things that can define a romance. The Valentine’s holiday is supposed to be the one day where your guy or girl goes all out to show just how much they love you with grand romantic gestures that involve glittery greeting cards, bundles of roses, heart shaped boxes of candy, jewelry, and fancy restaurants where they don’t use paper napkins. God help you if your paramour doesn’t provide the right party favors dedicated to your mutual undying love.
So you’ve dazzled your partner on this special occasion, which must mean you’re off the hook for another 364 days, right? Mmmmm…sure, as long as you’re not planning on having a lasting relationship. There’s nothing wrong with doing something extra wonderful on those special days. But romance is an ongoing, sometimes subtle process that can deepen the bond you have with your partner.
In my situation, he makes sure that my heating pad is turned on every day when I come home. Whoa! Hardly going to inspire Nicholas Sparks to turn out another sappy romance, but you know what? He’s letting me know that he cares how I feel after I’ve been on my feet all day at work. On the flip side, I make sure his coffee is turned on in the morning. I’ve actually resisted the idea of getting one with a timer, because I feel this is my territory, and I don’t want him getting too cuddly with the new coffeemaker. Another thing we’ve discovered over the years that warms the other person’s heart, and makes them feel all gushy inside? The phrase, “Thank you”. Not just taking for granted the little things you do for one another is huge.
Doing something grand and over the top once or twice a year for special occasions can be a fun and exciting thing for you and your partner. But it’s really the little things on a day-to-day basis that keeps the true romance alive. Because if you’re not paying attention and acknowledging the love you share, that person might not be around the next time Valentine’s Day comes along.
In my new book, “Set Ablaze”, Fire Chief Eric is coming out of the closet after twenty years of marriage. He’s been raised conservatively, and he’s never had any male relationships. He’s certainly never been out in the open about his sexual preferences. However, once he told his wife, she’s shouted it all over the town. He’s had no choice but to face varying degrees of acceptance, combined with downright hostility. When he meets the new recruit, Tom, he’s confused over how to handle his feelings, and what is appropriate romantic behavior when courting a man. Throw in a spate of arson fires, and Eric is under a lot of pressure. Will it prevent him from seeking love with Tom, the sexy new firefighter?
