What can we celebrate today?

Archive for the ‘Romantic’ Category

In addition to being National Sense of Smell Day, it is also:

National Kiss Your Mate Day: If you have a mate, and haven’t kissed ’em yet today, make sure you do. If you’re in a long distance relationship, maybe you can send a kiss in the mail, or use a webcam to share a virtual kiss.

National Cubicle Day: I’m just glad it’s Saturday and I don’t have to be in mine!

Great Poetry Reading Day: Poetry is really meant to be read out loud. So, find a great poem and read it to someone. You’ll both be the better for it.

Astronomy Day: Celebrate the vastness of the universe, learn something new about our galaxy. 

National Blueberry Pie Day: It’s a little early for blueberries in my neck of the woods. We have to wait for summer before we see any here. Fortunately, other parts of the country are not so limited. I believe I might just pick up some of the lovely round fruit when I stop at the market today, and bake a pie.



Ah, sweet memories. My very first kiss (other than from my parents, grandparents, and other relatives, of course) was when I was five years old. The cute blond boy from next door and I hid behind the porch door and exchanged a smooch. Neither of us were terribly impressed with the experience, but we both felt very grown up to have a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship.


There have been a lot of first kisses since then, some very sweet, some a little wild. One, I remember, was the only good kiss in the entire relationship, which was very short lived.

My last first kiss (other than the first kisses I gave each of my children after they were born), was quite simply the best first kiss I’ve ever had.  Which may be part of the reason I married my husband. He really does know how to kiss. It combined all of the best things about first kisses- it was sweet, a little hot, and had a whole lot of promises written into it.

Tell me about your first kiss…
