It is almost the most romantic time of year, Valentines Day, although I do believe romance should last the whole year though. So I thought it would be fun to share with you my 6 most romantic things and see how they compare to yours.
So here goes …
#1. Most Romantic Food –
I think the most romantic food is chocolate, of course. Just about anything covered in chocolate is romantic. A chocolate fountain. A heart-shaped box of chocolates. Chocolate covered cherries. How romantic would it be to float along Willie Wonka’s river of chocolate? My husband knows the pathway to my heart is paved in chocolate.
But stay away from chocolate diamonds and chocolate covered bacon – both I think are disgusting.
#2 Most Romantic Jewelry –
I think the most romantic jewelry is diamonds. But not, as I mentioned above, chocolate diamonds. Maybe they thought mixing the concept of chocolate and diamonds would appeal to women, but most of the women I’ve talked to think diamonds need to sparkle and twinkle. You need that rainbow effect of a prism to stir the heart strings. A woman feels loved and pampered when she’s all dressed up with diamonds in her ears, around her neck or on her fingers. Talk about feeling like a million bucks!
#3 Most Romantic Movie –
My most romantic movie has to be Jackie Chan’s The Myth (2005). I know it’s a martial arts movie (which will please the man in your life) but it’s also a love story. A forbidden-love story. Jackie plays an archaeologist in the present day who relives his former life as a general to China’s first emperor, in his dreams. As General Meng Yi, he is given the task to escort the Korean princess Ok-soo (played by Kim Hee-seon). It’s a long journey and they save each other a few times so of course they fall in love. But Meng Yi keeps his honor by rejecting her and successfully completing his mission. However, that’s not the end of Meng Yi and Ok-soo, oh no.
You really must see this movie. I have the original movie released in Hong Kong with English subtitles but they released an English version in 2007. A final note – the theme song, Wijin De Ai (Endless Love) is sung by Jackie Chan and Kim Hee-seon! What a beautiful love song.

Be sure to watch this movie with someone you love!
#4 Most Romantic Song –
Although I love the theme song from the movie, The Myth, my all-time favorite romantic song is Lady in Red by Chris De Burgh. If you haven’t heard this song you are in for a real treat. It’s perfect for slow dancing with your someone special. The song talks about dancing cheek-to-cheek and he feels like they are the only ones in the room. The woman is wearing red, the most romantic color, and he says how gorgeous she looks. My husband has it as the ring tone for when I call him. It never fails to ignite my embers, wherever we are (even in Walmart).

#5 Most Romantic Book –
There are so many fantastic romantic books, however; my favorite is Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (1936). I’ve always found the South (US) romantic and this book has the gowns and parties of the Antebellum South in the 1800’s. Then there’s the bad boy, Rhett Butler (played by Clark Gable), handsome, worldly, blockade runner during the Civil War falls in love with little spoiled Scarlett O’Hara (played by Vivien Leigh) but must wait years while she ‘follows her heart’ for another man. What more would a romantic story need?
#6 Most Romantic Place –
The most romantic place I can think of would be Hawaii or any South Sea island. I acquaint warmth with romance since I feel less romantic covered in layers up to my chin in wintertime. Moonlight walks on the beach hand-in-hand. Napping in the noonday shade in a double hammock. The feel of a silk sundress as it swishes while I walk. These things can happen every day in a tropical climate.
So now you know my 6 most romantic things. How do they compare to yours?
