Romantic Living

      I’ve had The Art of Romantic Living: Simple Touches to Enhance Everyday Life on my shelf for about a year.  I popped it into my reading basket when I last filled it late last summer.  I tend to save the lighter books for last, mostly as a reward to myself for muscling through the meatier stuff.  Yep, it’s true, I do sometimes bribe myself, but it serves a purpose!  The book was not quite what I’d anticipated, but I still enjoyed it very much.  The book is written in two parts.  The first section gives instruction and helps in decorating your home in a romantic manner, but don’t get the wrong impression!  Her ideas are very down to earth and do not resemble a lay out in Romantic Home magazine.  Instead, author Susan Wales suggests ways of working within our own decorating styles to bring a hint of romance to our home and garden with ideas for lighting, accessorizing, fragrance and color.  Part Two is brim full of wonderful ideas for living romantically!  While there are a few suggestions that are outside of normal daily living (taking a hot air balloon ride, for example), most of her suggestions are well within the bounds of things we can do on an almost daily basis for our spouses and other loved ones.  Copies are available for under a buck at Amazon,  making this a fun read with lots of doable decorating tips and suggestions for showing love to our husbands (and families).
