I love long, hot baths.
I love the way my skin feels under the water, and the way my core heats up. And of course, I love making bubble bikinis!
Hubby, on the other hand, is a shower kind of guy. Cold showers. Well not cold by his stadards, but cold by mine.
Despite this difference - or maybe because of it - taking baths together is one of the most romantic things we do.
Over the years, we've gotten it down to a science. We run just enough hot water to satisfy me and then cool it down enough for him.
Our tub is gigantic - perfect for sharing! And we usually uncork a bottle of white wine, dim the lights and put on some mood music.
Bathing together is a fabulous way to relax and unwind, and a great time to just be together physically, touching and stroking and washing! lol
Dare I call it good, clean fun?

Thanks to television and romance novels, most of us have dreamed of grand romantic gestures of one sort or another. You know the kind - a scattered carpet of rose pedals leading to a canopy bed or a serenade outside the window. Monumental, once in a lifetime romance.
But few things put a sparkle in our eyes like little romantic gestures - the everyday romance things like holding hands over a home-cooked meal and having doors opened for us - which can be as regular as a heartbeat.
So which is it? Grand or little? A once in a lifetime moment or a lifetime full of moments?
What are the romantic gestures that get your heart pumping, your breath catching or your mind spinning? And why?
Be romantic, be creative, be candid!
Personally, I love the little things, but never turn my nose up at a grand romantic gesture when it came a knocking!
Most romantic gesture - when Hubby blow dries my hair. Why that? Because he knows I love it, I know he'd rather be doing just about anything else, but he does it anyway, and for as long as I want!
Now that's romantic!
What about you?
