Good morning all! And hello to 2017!! I, for one, am glad to say goodbye to 2016. It was a difficult year — personally, professionally, for the world and everywhere in between. But going into the new year, I’m filled with some optimism and hope. My hubby says “it can’t get worse”. I beg to differ but that’s too gloom and doom. I don’t want to focus on all that negativity.
We ended Christmas day with a death in my family but from that sadness I (and my mom, whose father passed), we came away with one another and a strong connection of mother/daughter and how much her father meant to her. He was a man she had differences with but in the end had a great bond she can cherish. So the hope and love we always find solace in is stronger than ever and reminds me that family and love will always wrap their arms around us and keep us together. It reminded me about how romantic my grandparents were as well. They would have been married over 60 years and that number of years for a couple is quite unheard of these days. My hubby and I are approaching 16 years and we’ve never been happier together, despite the bumps in the road.
Writing romance, for me, is inspired by those previous generations (we are a family with no divorces), and how a simple song will prompt a dance around the kitchen (or a way to say goodbye at a funeral), a light touch down the arm rejuvenates that connection and heat between that couple. And thanks to my hubby, every day a simple kiss on the forehead a few times a day, has me closing my eyes and loving him completely, with his love wrapping around me like a blanket.
I hope all of you have those kinds of moments with the person they love this year and beyond.
