A romantic dinner is a beautiful way to show a spouse or significant other that you appreciate them and want to make them happy. You can plan the dinner for a holiday or birthday or as an intimate meal in the middle of the work week. The most important thing is to use your creativity to build a romantic dinner atmosphere. It’s not the food alone that makes a dinner for two romantic. It’s a combination of scents, sights and ambiance that make a dinner beautiful.

Tips for a romantic dinner:
– Soft or dim lighting can create a beautiful romantic atmosphere.
– Small, round, and well-dressed tables have intimate appeal.
– Instrumental or classical background music can add enormously to the atmosphere.
– Turn off the TV, the computer and all cell phones.
– Do not serve food with garlic or onion.
– Share a nice chocolate dessert.
– Dress up nicely for a romantic dinner.

Watermelon is scientifically classified as Citrullus Lanatus and is a member of the cucurbitaceae family. It’s related to cucumbers, pumpkins, gourds and squash. They are packed with some of the best antioxidants in nature. Watermelons are rich with healthy nutrients such as vitamin A (including beta-carotene), vitamin C, potassium, lycopene, and magnesium. They are good for cardiovascular diseases, some cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes too. What’s more, they are low in calories and very nutritious. I love watermelons, they’re so juicy and sweet and delicious. They are especially nice to eat on hot weathers. One of the pleasures of a warm sunny summer day is to be able to enjoy a slice of watermelon. It can also be a perfect health drink because it is 92% water, and doesn’t contain any fat or cholesterol. Furthermore, it fills you up fast because of its water content.

Next time you hit a fruit shop or visit the farmer’s market, don’t forget to reach for watermelon. The children will enjoy its nice crisp taste and messy juices, the adults will enjoy its refreshing flavours, and everyone will benefit from its nutritious value. Just be careful to buy the “right” watermelon. Always choose one that is symmetrical and firm without any bruises. Turn it over and you will see a yellow colour on one side which tellyyou that it was rested on the ground while ripening under the sun, so it’s sweeter and juicer. You can also slap it, and if it sounds hollow, then it’s ripe and tasty.

This is beautiful and looks romantic – to us anyway. For her it was probably kinda weird :-)

Being romantic is hard work. Some people think that romance is easy, that anybody can be romantic with very little work. This is not true. To be romantic there are a lot of things you must know about romance and a lot of situations you must prepare for.
Samuel Stoddard

So, how to be romantic? Little things mean a lot to women. The most romantic things to me are the little things guys do. First and foremost, always be a gentleman. Open the door for her, be a good listener, etc. Tell your girlfrien/wife she looks gorgeous when you first see her in her new dress. But only say it once. If you say it twice or thre times or more, it will just seem corny and fake. Find out what her favorite romantic movies are and try to recreate that atmosphere. Write her an actual letter with ink and paper. While you are dancing be fun! During slow dances don’t put your hands on her ass; Just on the waitst and look into her eyes! Find a nice beautiful romantic place and take her there to kiss or make out. Give her a bouquet of handpicked flowers. And do it with sincerity. Take her and do something out of the ordinary, and be sure to have fun.

God, I love fireworks. They turn me into a giddy little school girl, and I love it :-)

I love fireworks They are kind of magical if you are in the right mood and they starts in the right moment. And you? Love or hate them?
 According to the US Census Bureau, last year America imported $201.9 million dollars in fireworks from China, and exported $14.9 million of our own. American households collectively “spend more than $420 million a year on fireworks, according to the Consumer Expenditure Survey. And that figure doesn’t even include the amount of money private and government organizations shell out for public shows.

Do you like fireworks?
Who doesn't like fireworks?! I love fireworks!
Yeah, I\'m a sucker for those things.
I love anything that sparkles in the clear-night sky.
Yes! It\'s so romantic when you have someone with you though.
Yes, at a safe distance.
They are alright.
Not particularly.
No, I find them loud and obnoxious.

I’ve always been fascinated by rainbows. Gorgeous, colourful and short-lived they are ones of the many wonders of nature :-)

Sunsets and rainbows are beautiful creations from Our Lord. They can create happiness for those who see them and they are symbols of hope and promise.

Good to know:
Humans have always been fascinated by rainbows. In Greek mythology, they were said to be the path of Iris, the messenger of the gods. In Norse mythology, a rainbow was a Bifröst bridge, connecting the homes of the gods and humans. Irish leprechauns are said to hide their gold at the end of a rainbow. Those are magical stories, but they are not true.

A rainbow is an arc of colored light in the sky. It is caused by sunlight refracting and reflecting from droplets of water, such as rain or mist, in the air. The colors of the reflected arc of light are always in the same order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

How does sunlight create a rainbow? Light enters a drop of water. The drop acts as a prism, and refracts the light. This means the light is broken up into the individual colors, or spectrum, that are contained in the light. If the light enters the drop at just the right angle (about 42 degrees), the back of the drop acts as a mirror and reflects most of the light back out the front. Have you ever seen a double rainbow? They are caused when the droplets reflect the light twice. The colors in the spectrum of the second rainbow are in the opposite order from those in the first.

Butterflies are so colorful and beautiful to watch :-)

Butterflies are so beautiful and gorgeous and colorful, I wish I could fly around on one and visit rainbow land :-)

Butterflies are so cute and free, they go where ever their wings take them. A butterfly’s transformation is magical. From minuscule egg, to chubby caterpillar, to pod-like chrysalis and finally into an intricately decorated, delicately winged creature. Just extraordinary.

The butterfly’s attractiveness derives not only from colors and symmetry: deeper motives contribute to it. We would not think them so beautiful if they did not fly, or if they flew straight and briskly like bees, or if they stung, or above all if they did not enact the perturbing mystery of metamorphosis: the latter assumes in our eyes the value of a badly decoded message, a symbol, a sign.
