Did I tell you that I am hopelessly romantic? 🙂
This is our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple. Everyone told me that all romance dies off after a while once you get married and I am here to prove them wrong. This is what I have planned for our old age (Hope my husband reads this.)
I want to be an 80 years old grandmother with a romantic husband who comes home with roses for me on Valentine’s Day with a box of chocolates or a cake 🙂 . Judging by what he did the day before, I am sure it will happen in the future.
Anyway the day before was Valentine’s Day if any of you missed that. It is still not too late to buy a rose for you partner yet. It was our second Valentine’s Day together as I mentioned in my previous post (Click here if you missed that). But it was our first as husband and wife (I feel so old when I remember that I am a married woman now). So when I opened my eyes in the morning, I hugged him and wished him a very happy Valentine’s day. It felt so nice to have him next to me. I feel so lucky to be blessed with such happiness.
So as usual, I woke up and was ready to go to the shower when he asked me to go to the kitchen and make some breakfast. Normally, our breakfast is cereal and boiled egg during weekdays so I was not in a hurry to make it. I told him I will do it after the shower and went to brush and have shower. Once I got out, again he asked me to go to the kitchen, I was planning to get ready and then I would go to the kitchen. I was a bit annoyed that he kept insisting for me to go to make breakfast but I thought I better do it.
So I just went to kitchen to boil some eggs and there it was on our dining table, a roses and a card. That’s when I got why he was asking me to go to the kitchen so early in the morning. I was really touched so I went back to the bedroom to thank him. He had this big grin on his face (like a satisfied lion) happy that he was able to surprise me. The card read,
For my Wife M
On valentine day
I lose my socks
I lose my head
Sometimes I lose my ways…
I’d like to lose a kilo or two (but they seem here to stay)
I lose my drive to get things done
Sometimes my temper too…
But there’s one thing
I‘ll never lose,
And that’s my love for you
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Every word in that card was just so true and felt like every word described our relationship so well. It made my day. The smell of the flowers was so sweet and I couldn’t stop smiling the whole day.
Last year we exchanged our gifts after work so I was thinking to do the same this year. I wasn’t prepared in the morning and I felt bad. I knew what I was going to do but I couldn’t risk of him finding out a day in advance. Also I have no idea how he pulled it off but I had no clue that he had bought flowers already the day before. When I asked him where he hid the flowers, he said that he can’t tell otherwise he won’t be able to do it again.
Just to be in the spirit of Valentine’s Day I wore a red dress to work that day and it was nice to see some of my work mates doing the same.
I had already bought perfume for him but it was at work. I went and bought a heart-shaped cake from the bakery. They sell amazing delicious cakes so I was sure that one will be great as well.
When I gave him his gifts, he guessed it was a cake, how disappointing. Anyway he loved his cake and perfume.
It is funny that we didn’t go and watch the Vow as it was the Valentine movie this year. Instead we went and watched The Safe House. It was an ok movie for me as there is too much gun fight but AS loved it.
After that we went for dinner. The restaurant was full with lots of couples. To start with we had chicken and corn soup, followed by roast and seafood. They have lots of choices for salads as well. Then for desert we had chocolate mousse, cheese with crackers and fruits. Finally we had tea/coffee to wrap up our dinner. Once dinner was over, they had Vegas Spectacular show on the stage. It was just amazing with Brazilian music with show girls and guys performing. They had great audience participation and the MC was so funny. It was total entertainment. I just loved the whole act and the girls were just amazing.
After the show we danced to a few songs and it was over for the evening. As both of us were working the next day, it was time to go home to our warm bed. Overall, it was an awesome Valentine’s Day with my husband. Just loving him more 🙂
