K is for Kissing

Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge where for the month of April we post everyday except Sundays, corresponding to each letter of the alphabet. I've chosen to blog about keeping the romance alive in a relationship along with ideas for married couple dates. Each post will also have a romantic song for you to listen to whilst you read.

Today's song is by the gorgeous Ronan Keating - If Tomorrow Never Comes.

As some of you will know, my first instinct for the letter K was to talk about my beloved Ken, but as I did that in 2016 I thought I should do something different. I've chosen kissing as it's such an important expression of romance and can convey so much emotion.

Do you remember your first kiss? Me - 11 years old but I won't say who. Do you remember your first kiss with your special person? I do, I had giant, scary butterflies in my stomach as I was hoping that my beloved would kiss me but it's also the fear that it won't go well - you can only ever have one first kiss.

A kiss before one of you leaves the house, a kiss for no reason, and definitely a kiss before you go to sleep at night - really important moments of connection. Of course kissing is also great when it's out of control and passionate and leads to other wonderful parts of a relationship.

We were kissing in a supermarket once and a man walking past muttered that we shouldn't be doing that in the fruit and veg section - I should have asked him which section of the supermarket would have been appropriate. Another time we were kissing at a festival and some teenagers made gagging noises about 'old people kissing'!

Today's quote captures exactly how I feel about my beloved;

Pamela & Ken

  1. I guess it depends on your own love life if you can deal with kissing and hand-holding couples in public. I remember when I was just being dumped I used to think "enjoy it while it lasts - because it won't!" Old people (and by that I mean they're in their 80s) who still display their affection in public touch me so much, it makes me happy and hopeful!

    Great song!

    Happy Friday :-)

    K is for Kruger:

    1. Agree about aged people being affectionate in public, it always makes me feel happy.

  2. I say go for it. Hubby and I do and we don't care what others think. We aren't inappropriate but we do kiss in public. Holding hands always.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

    1. Glad to hear and holding hands is always wonderful.
      Thanks for stopping by Sandee.

  3. I saw something online this morning saying it was International Kissing Day. Who knew?

    1. So wonderful that there is a national day, not that I need an excuse.

  4. I was a late bloomer, didn't have a first kiss until 16. I love that quote, much better to be the last than the first. Great song too, I have loved all of them so far.

    1. I didn't have my first proper kiss until I was 18, so you beat me. Glad you like the songs.
