So, is this a romantic life?


...I guess I am a romantic after all.
"Romantic Homes" magazine's February issue has just hit the newsstands with its annual feature, and one of my perennial faves, "The Romantics"...


I was asked to submit for this feature this year...and while at first I didn't think I led a "romantic life"...upon reflection, I came up with a story of adventure that conveys my ideals of romance, and my own brand of a romantic lifestyle .



I should mention that, you'll only be disappointed if you expect tales of candlelit dinners or surprise gifts. I adore my husband, but this is not his style, our style.... he would rather we go for a hike or work on one of our old cars...I would rather we potter about the house or garden with the kiddos...



A big thanks to Jacqueline deMontravel for the opportunity to think about what romance really means to me, and the chance to share a peek into our home and world...

Please, please pick up this magazine if you are not already a subscriber. This current issue is more packed that ever with fab photos, heartwarming stories and a nod to the sweet romance of everyday joys.

Well done once again Romantic Homes! ...and here's to romance...and whatever it means to you.
