Girls Write Out
Sunday, April 24, 2011

What's been on the news nonstop for weeks on end with burning questions such as: Who designed the dress? Who will be invited? Where are they taking their honeymoon? and What did he eat for breakfast this morning? Does anyone NOT know about the upcoming royal nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton?

This morning I heard their relationship described as a Fairytale Romance. Now, I'm not sure of your definition of Fairytale Romance, but mine definitely does not include paparazzi following me 24/7, reporters digging in my trash, or Royal Restrictions galore.

Maybe I'm all wet, but I think a quiet relationship, a private wedding, and the freedom to, say, shop for a necklace in peace, are ever so much more romantic than posed kisses, daily photo ops, and a world-televised wedding. But I'm just a lowly romance writer, so what do I know?

How about you? What's your idea of romance? What's the most romantic thing your significant other has done for you?

PS - Thomas Nelson is giving away 5 signed copies of "A Cowboy's Touch" EVERY FRIDAY through May 2o! It's easy to enter! See details here. There's no prince or royals in my story, but there is a cowboy, a sweet love story, and a happily ever after. :-) NOTE: Leaving a message here on the blog is NOT an entry for the drawing!

I'm a romantic, obviously. :) But I'm with you. I'd rather conduct a romance in private. LOL

The Fairytale romance that is desctibed in the news does not interest me at all. I also know that as soon as they say "I do." the media will start tearing them apart and creating problems where none exsist. I would rather create my own problems - so to speak. :-)
To be honest, that is more like a nightmare romance to me. I would rather not be the center of attention so is not something I would want to be part of. :-)

I'll be glad when it's over too. I had to google the wedding date last week because I had no idea when it was and I just wanted to know when we'd get a break from all of it.

And now I forget when it is again. Can you tell I don't watch much TV?

It's Friday, Suzanne. And I'll be glad when it's over too! Sheesh.

But you're right, Chris, it won't end with the wedding. Hopefully we'll hear of them less often though.

Thanks, Jel!
