I have something to tell you.
and for those of you who know me well, you may be surprised?
and for those who know me really really well ...
may not be surprised at all.
or perhaps I could be completely wrong!
The truth of the matter is
I am a hopeless romantic
yes 'tis true.
In my mind I expect all gentlemen to have that Mr. Darcy persona
They will open doors, speak in a gentlemanly way, bring flowers, write love letters
dote on the one they are smitten with and know how to dance well.
see? hopeless romantic you may say.
I used to gag at the thought of romance novels,
or a movie that involved any sort of romantic vibe.
I was an avid and devout tomboy as a kid you see....
still am in many, many ways.
But I seem to be merging towards the middle in some areas now.
Romance is one of them.
I relish a good novel, or movie that demonstrates the way a real gentleman treats a lady.
sometimes I think I was born in the wrong era.
What is all this leading to you say? I found a beautiful. simply lovely. song.
and I was afraid if I didn't explain myself before posting it I would send out the wrong message.
ha ha.... such a worry wart I am.
( or perhaps I just wanted another excuse to talk about Mr. Darcy)
And noo, I do not have a "special someone" right now that this song is personally directed to.
believe me. you would know!
I just thought it was beautiful.
It is simple, and doesn't just talk about the "fireworks" side of love. =]
Here is the song.

and here are the lyrics. Enjoy!
I've been waiting all my life for this morning
Just to wake up next to you holding me
And your head is resting gently on my shoulder
Like you're whispering to me
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you
So glad I found you
I'm in love with you
When we're leaving dreams and rolling back the covers
All at once we're getting ready for the day
It's when you look at me in the mirror while you're shaving
Before I go on my way, you say
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you
You're the one I choose ‘Cause I'm in love
Love is joy and love is pain
It's kissing in the rain
It's doing dishes when it's late Isn't it, baby
It's the art of compromise
It's hellos and long goodbyes
It's the picture of our lives
Isn't it crazy
So I'll call you when I get to where I'm going
And I'll tell everyone we know you said hello
And without fail they'll ask me if I miss you
Of course I do, you know I do
‘Cause I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you
You're the one I choose
I'm in love I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you
I love you just the same as I did the day I fell in love with you
Joy Williams is one of my FAVORITE female artists. amazing.

I'm *such* a hopeless romantic too! It's funny because it is something that I usually keep on the hush hush in fear that people don't want to hear about my sappy or sentimental ideals. ;) It sounds like we're both part of the truly old-fashioned kinda gals. I love how you explained it regarding Mr. Darcy. :) thanks for sharing that pretty song, what amazing lyrics. ♥

Love this. It's the little things, the little details of love that makes it so great to me. Bravo!

I'm the ultimate romantic too. I think all of us gals deep down want our Mr Darcy... Old fashion romance YES PLEASE! The innocence stuff we use to see in classic movies. Kissing in the rain is bliss.

THanks for sharing your thoughts x
