coffeechatToday Les’ – Time out for Mom’s prompt for our Tuesday Coffee Chat is: How to woo you? What special things does your partner do to flirt, or romance you?

Uh oh, I am probably not the most romantic person on Earth. In fact, David can be much more romantic than I. Which personally I think this is a good thing. He puts a lot of thought into everything he does. And my favorite thing that David still does after being together for more than 10 years, is the fact that he surprises me. With gifts, small or big, a little something here or there, flowers to the office (NOT on Valentine’s Day!) or a weekend getaway. And he succeeds. Oh, and small or big, depending on the weekday it falls on: Breakfast in bed with a candle (!) on my birthday. And the best thing? To see the smile lighting up his face when he knows that he made me happy.

This here is the latest flower he got, for me. I have been bugging him for a while that I wanted something blooming for our little balcony. Not a practical flower like a herb. Which I love, but something just looking pretty. And knowing that I love purple he got this one.


Oh, and he also makes breakfast every Saturday and Sunday, while I am… doing other things, my things. And during last Sunday’s breakfast the sun was shining a little magical light on the leaves surrounding us.


What’s not to love about all this and who needs more romancing than this?! Not me! 🙂

p.s. I haven’t even mentioned the ‘taking care part’. Caring for and about me, what I do, what I think and making sure WE are doing lots of things together. Because: Together we are strong! Together life is good. (hehehe – part of our wedding vows)

pps. And by the way, David now has his own website and blog, where he writes about building a little robot, 3D printing and eventually his writing. Check out his latest post here.
