I’m going to make a prediction. About nine months from now, there’s going to be a little baby boom in Atlanta.
A major winter storm paralyzed Atlanta this week. A state of emergency was declared and people advised to stay home. Schools and businesses became makeshift hotels for the unlucky. And for over 30 hours I haven’t been off my property.
What a great time for romance!
Think about it.
- There’s no place to go.
- Nothing you have to do.
- You’re home, hopefully with your sweetheart.
- There are probably fewer interruptions than usual.
What an opportunity to romance your sweetheart with the gift of time.
- Have a leisurely breakfast,
- Watch the snowfall over coffee,
- Complete an inside project together,
- Snuggle while watching a movie,
- Plan a warm-weather vacation.
Instead of whining about the inconvenience created by atmospheric anomalies, take advantage of the situation.
In fact, why not use other weather-related inconveniences as an excuse to create romance.
If it’s too cold to go outside,
if there are torrential rains keep you home,
if the snow drifts block your street,
if summer heat burns up plans . . .
take advantage. Stay home and spend time with your sweetheart.
Snow’s keeping me home, so hot chocolate…the fireplace…marshmallows…my sweetheart – It’s sounding better already.
Stay warm and safe. Robert
