What does romance mean to you: Nikki Parkinson – Styling You
1. What’s something romantic that someone has done for you?
On our first holiday together, my husband booked a dinner out for us at a cliffside restaurant on Santorini in Greece.
The food, wine and location were mind-blowing and on the tables were unusual candleholders that I just had to have. He tracked them down on the island and bought them for our first home.
2. What’s the most romantic thing you’ve done for someone else?
I once entered a radio competition that won my husband a boys’ footy weekend away – on Mother’s Day weekend!
3. What everyday small things do you find romantic?
When my husband does the washing up and ironing – that’s everyday romance right there!
4. What do you think is romantic that others might not?
I love creating a romantic mood each evening via subtle lighting and candles.
Thank you Nikki for sharing your insight into romance. We so agree that it’s about something personal and not about a big, grand gesture.
