When Was Your Most Romantic Dance? (Tuesday's Question)



When Was Your Most Romantic Dance? Where were you, who were you with, and do you remember the song?

Hello, and welcome to Tuesday’s Question. If you’re unfamiliar with Tuesday’s Question, it’s my way of spreading weekly link love, getting to know my readers, and introducing you to each other, that is, if you’re not friends already, and in that case, feel free to visit each other through comments.

This is how it works: After you answer Tuesday's Question, I copy your answer and add it to this post, along with a link to your blog. That way, everyone who reads the answers will read your answers as well, and will have a link to your blog, and chances are, if they like your answer, they will also like your blog.

Makes sense, right, plus, it is one of the ways we can get to know each other better, and I can pass along link love to my blogging buddies each week.



Today’s Question again is When Was Your Most Romantic Dance? Where were you, who were you with, and do you remember the song?

My answer:

My most romantic dance was on the beach with my ex-husband. It was dusk, and I was playing in the sand with our son, when my husband who was standing beside us, leaned over and took my hand. At first, I thought he was going to tell me something in my ear, but he pulled me into his arms, and started dancing with me.

Then, our one-year-old son crawled between us, and stood on his Dad’s feet. I’ll never forget it, because we didn’t say a word, we were covered in sweat, sand, and salt water, and we just danced. I laid my head on his shoulder and we hummed while he slowly rocked me and our baby back and forth...the wind blew and the tide rushed in...I don’t remember the song.

Now, it's your turn:

My first answer to Tuesday's Question is from Stephanie from Stephanie's Stories
and if you haven't visited this writer's blog, you're missing out...
She's an articulate writer, Mom, Aunt, Wife, and Therapist, with many an interesting story to tell.

Here's Stephanie's answer:

Hi Annie-
Love your blog!
What a great question. Most romantic dance:
-with my husband I affectionately call "The Bird" on my blog
-dancing in the middle of our living room, fire lit, candles glowing, Frank Sinatra in the background.
-Voted most romantic bc it was impromptu. Straight from a place a pure love.

Song stuck in my head is from Julie & Julia the movie we saw yesterday which is Time After Time...so lucky to be loved by you. (Not sure of the actual title)
xo Stephanie

My next answer is from another wonderful blogger. Grace from Hugz Before You Go
which I would describe as a treasure box full of honest, intelligent, and funny posts.

Here's Grace's answer:

As much as I love to dance, my brother bought me a sweat shirt that said "To dance is to live, To live is to dance", I've never experienced a romantic dance. Never had a beautiful ball gown, can't think of any thing romantic I've ever been a part of. Now how sad is that?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The next answer comes from Sandee at Comedy Plus, another nugget of gold in the blogosphere, not to mention funny and kind. She also writes great answers to Tuesday's Question.

Here's what Sandee wrote:

This is an easy one Annie. Of course it's with hubby. We weren't together yet, but we had a work function that had music and dancing after dinner. I'd never even kissed him yet so this is the very, very beginning. Okay, even before the beginning.

He walked over to me, extended his hand, and I of course took his hand and off to the dance floor we went. He folded me into his arms and we just swayed with the music. I felt safe and warm. I felt love. It was a magical moment that I've never forgotten.

The music...Whitney Houston - I will always love you. For everyone else this is not a love song, but for me it is...

Today is my birthday and hubby is making me feel special all over again.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

I left this date here to remember it's Sandee's Birthday...Hence, if you have a chance stop by and surprise her by telling her Happy Birthday. She'll wonder how you know, that is unless someones beat us to it, but still, she will not know how you know. Happy Birthday golden lady. I hope you have a good one.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The next answer is from a very best buddy in the blogosphere, who, in addition to a being a fabulous friend, is a marvelous poet, who can make turning a spectacular phrase, look as easy as spinning a top. Dawn, is a woman with a big heart and a whole lot of talent. I'm honored to be her friend, and you will be too.

Oh, I guess I have to introduce her blog and leave the link in order for you to visit her blog, don't I? Thank goodness, I'm not running the world, eh?

Dawn is from Twisted Sister, and here is her answer:

Sorry I'm late answering... and you don't have to post my answer. I have had hundreds of dances I suppose but I don't remember one in particular that stands out as the most romantic... Unless of course you count all the times I danced with my cat. Now he was a real charmer... ;)

Luvs ya syster!

Your word verification is Syster! How cool is that?

Hey, Stephanie, The feeling is mutual. I love your blog too.

And this is a great answer...I thought of posting a Frank Sinatra song for the song of the day, but then I changed my mind.

I love those dances, or anything, for that matter, that comes from a place of pure love, it's intoxicating.

And thanks for a new movie title, because I've been looking for a new movie, and if that's the song I'm thinking of, the movie has to be good.

And more thanks for playing along, Stephanie, and I hope you have a great day~

Well, Grace, It's time to get started...if we can figure out a dinner that has something for a meat lover, and something for a non meat lover...

(yes, I've read your post, but I haven't figured out how to comment, because I'm an awful cook.) then you can cook a nice meal, turn the lights down low, and put on Frank Sinatra's Nice 'N' Easy, and you will have your most romantic dance.

I know you can do it. If not tonight, sometime...because you have a man who loves you...

Do you want to know what's sad? I tried to dance with Simon (my cat) this morning, and he let out a loud MEOW! and jumped out of my arms.

I'm searching for a man to love me, and I know he's out there...but I don't know what he's doing...what's new?

And tell your brother, I want one of those sweat shirts. It sounds great~

Big hug, and love,

Annie

Grace said...

Annie, your description of me and blog and way too generous. I should aspire to that. I am just so tired of food and cooking - every day - it gets boring LOL

Love Sandee's response - that is romantic ::sigh::

It was a Snoopy sweatshirt and it got me an extra 5 points on a Perceptual Psychology test.

I'm betting that you are easy to love...

"Annie" said...

Sandee, I told you I was going to write an easy Tuesday's Question. ;)

I love your answer...Now, that is romance...It's so great to see a couple still so much in love. You two, are truly an inspiration. I can see you in my minds eye too. Great imagery.

Plus, I can see how 'I will Always Love You' would make a great love song. It really can be taken both ways.

And by the way HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I knew your birthday was sometime in Sept. I just wasn't sure of the date.

I hope you and hubby have another romantic evening, followed by many more...

Big Hug and lotsa lovies back~

Annie

"Annie" said...

Grace, My description of your blog was dead on...every word...

It's because you're talented, but it's also due to the spirit behind it. I can read between the lines....(Smile)

I'm sorry I haven't been by with my comment yet, I'm running behind again, as usual. However, I still cannot think of anything that would suit you both.

I was going to cheat anyway. I was going to look up something in my grandmothers recipe book.

I'm still going to stop by, but I'm not sure I'll find anything, plus, you will probably be dancing by then...(Smile)

The sweatshirt is a Snoopy sweatshirt? Well...that just makes it cooler.

I'm still trying to understand how Snoopy and a Perceptual Psychology test go together, but it doesn't matter, although I would have given you ten points.

God bless you for your last sentence...

I hope you have an evening to remember, whatever it entails...

Big hug, and love,

Annie

"Annie" said...

Dawn, Well, it's a good sign that none of those dances stood out in your mind as the most romantic, because that means the most romantic dance is yet to come. (Smile)

In addition, hundreds of dances is nice...unless, of course I think of some of mine.

I couldn't stand it when a man asked me to dance, then leaned on me to the point of almost knocking me over...those were not any fun...LOL

And are you kidding about not posting your answer? Besides, I'm running behind myself...

And Miiko was a real charmer...I miss hearing about him, and I know you miss him too.

However, I believe you have a cat angel now, one who needs to help Simon with his dancing skills. ;)

Thanks for playing along Syster,

And yes, it is very cool that the word verification said that.

Luvs ya too Syster,

Annie

Sandi said...

most romantic dance for me would have to have been "Always by Bon Jovi and just dancing to it in our bedroom with the lights down low. :)

Shinade aka Jackie said...

Hi Annie,
I have missed you but I am here and you have a great question.

I know this is not going to sound very romantic but it was.

One New Year's Eve when all of the kids were still living at home Walter and I stayed home.

We had a big party and let all of the kids have at least two friends each over.

We had loads of junk food, silly string, Walter and I had our hair all streaked with funny spray on colors.

Kids were running everywhere and simply having a blast.

At midnight, as the ball dropped, there was Walter looking quite silly with silly string hanging everywhere. Both of us had purple, blue, pink and silver streaks in our hair.

But, he kissed me ever so gently, took me by the hand and we danced a very loving tender slow dance.

All of the kids suddenly got very quiet and encircled as we danced.

We could see the look on our children's faces and our hearts melted.

They were standing there watching, occasionally glancing around at their friends, as to say, that's our mom and dad, see how very much in love they are.

I will never ever forget that dance or that night. It was the best ever!!

I hope you have a great day Annie!!
Hugs,
Jackie

Grace said...

Tuesday: the song in my head is It Never Entered My mind

And Jackie's story is soooo romantic, oh my!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Annie-
I've had plenty. But I hope the best is yet to come...

ettarose said...

Well I am late as usual, story of my life I swear. My first true love all those many years ago. Our song was Nights In White Satin. I will always always remember dancing with him to that song. All these many years later I cry when I hear it.

Sam said...

Of course that I remember my first romantic dance cause was with my best love and my wife now Katrine. Everything with her is full with love she is my amazing half of me.
Your blog is great I often read and thanks that you make me laughing:)))
