Favorite Romantic Vacation Spot #33: Any beach… for adults only

  • September 23, 2010 at 10:23 pm

For her romantic vacation spot and meal choice, Rose was not quite as specific as with her other choices. So these blogs will be short and sweet. No pictures. No recipes. None needed. I think that we will all “get” where Rose is coming from… Continue reading ‘Favorite Romantic Vacation Spot #33: Any beach… for adults only’

Favorite Romantic Poem #13: Sonnet 130 by Shakespeare

  • September 23, 2010 at 10:17 pm

Yet again Rose surprised Gigi with her classical choice of a poem. Gigi knows quite a few of Shakespeare’s sonnets, but not all of them. This is one that she is not as familiar with. But like most of his sonnets, it is lyrical and beautiful, and just what poetry should be. Continue reading ‘Favorite Romantic Poem #13: Sonnet 130 by Shakespeare’

Favorite Romantic Book #33: Rose’s choice

  • September 23, 2010 at 10:13 pm

Funny how you can know someone for years, and not know your tasted in things are so similar. Who would have thought that Rose had such classical tastes in movies, books, and poetry? Gigi grew up in Europe and received a classical British education. Rose grew up in Michigan, and had an American one. And yet they both love the classicals… first in movies, and now in books (and in the next blog post, poems too). Continue reading ‘Favorite Romantic Book #33: Rose’s choice’

  • September 23, 2010 at 10:08 pm

At first Rose told Gigi that she didn’t have any favorite romantic movies, but after she “pondered upon it a bit”, she went and chose one of Gigi’s favorite classical romantic movies. There is nothing like the old classics. Nothing. Cary Grant invented romance I think!! Sometimes I don’t think that they make movies the way they used to.

Favorite Romantic Songs #33: Rose’s choice

Gigi has known Rose since the old salsa days… way before she went salsa dancing with Kelly and Susan. Rose was one of her original salsa friends. They don’t see each other that much anymore, but since face book, they have found a new way to keep in touch, and Rose is one of our bloggers, giving us great input, from the point of view of a woman who had to wait quite some time to find her man and husband, but now has him, and is happy.
