In the Mood for a Little Romance?

My birthday was Friday, and it was a hectic day. Basically, in all the craziness of life, my birthday ended up a tad overlooked at home. Hey, no big deal.

However, my DH is a sweetheart, and today he picked up my car, detailed it for me, and returned it with a really sweet, mushy birthday card inside. When I arrived home, he had supper cooked and on the table. See? This is why he's my very own romance hero after eighteen years.

Oh, and by the way . . . What Mattered Most is LIVE and ON SALE NOW!

I think I want to celebrate by giving away a copy! Tell you what . . . in the comment section, tell me the most romantic gesture you've ever experienced, and I'll draw for a free copy in the format of your choice. Let's see . . . how about if we leave this open until noon tomorrow (Pacific Standard Time)? (I'll also be giving away another copy over at RWKF this week -- see my upcoming Friday post for details!).

Comment away!

Happy Belated Birthday! When I turned sweet 16, my boyfriend organized a suprise birthday party for me at his parents' home. He had transformed his mom's living room into a dance floor by removing the furniture! We danced and danced and had the greatest time! Connie

Happy belated birthday, Linda!! And congrats on What Mattered Most! I bought a copy this morning.

I've already congratulated you privately on both counts, but I just wanted to say how happy I am for you on the release of WMM. It's really neat, after having seen it from it's inception, to see it for sale.

I want a hard copy too, when the print form comes out, but I couldn't resist buying 2 e-copies. One for me, one for a friend.

So, have any of your colleagues at work or students bought a copy?

Oh, and kudos to your DH. Good man! :-)

I'm not in the running, but the most romantic gesture??? My DH is full of them and there's 26+ yrs worth already. How about this one - he snuck into my office at work early one Valentines Day and left flowers, a card and a HUGE teddy bear in my chair.

37, E. 29 is a long ways away in my rearview mirror, LOL.

Thanks, all, for the congrats (and Elisa and Carol, for purchasing copies!).

Connie, your contest copy is on its way! I hope you like it!

Y'all are the best, you know that, right?
