Hello bloggers, it’s the girlfriend here, coming at you with my own special edition of a Valentine’s blog ;)
My boyfriend thought it would be a neat idea to hand his blog over to a girlfriend’s perspective and fill you in on how we celebrated our very first Valentine’s Day together (which also happens to be three days before our one year anniversary on the 17th!)
Now, I know the commotion on this day can be fairly over exaggerated and can sometimes lead people to expect too much or even too little. I’ve heard several people complain merely because they’re single. Tip: Just because you’re single, doesn’t mean you’re obliged to make this a lonely day for yourself. If you wish to spend this day with someone special, there’s no need to be a try hard and potentially waste this day finding a Valentine; spend the day with people you love! You aren’t going to find your soul mate by pampering them with conversation hearts; they taste like chalk medicine in my opinion. So by all means, give Cupid the finger and move on with your day.
If you’re expecting this blog to be bombarded with a lyrical Valentine’s Day story of two hopeless romantics, you’ve already got me all wrong. Sure, I like a little romance, but I’m not a flowers and candy type of girl. I like to keep this day pretty simple and sweet at the same time. It doesn’t matter to me how much money is spent or how the day is planned, when I’m with the one I love and care about, I’m already set for a wonderful day. So here’s how our day went…
I spent the night at my boyfriend’s house as both of us crammed and cuddled in his little bed, and I fell asleep quite peacefully without any expectations regarding the next day. When I awakened in the morning he was there to greet me with breakfast in bed, even though I urged him not to many times the night before. I was even going set an alarm to get up before him so I could make us breakfast, but he beat me to it. Some eggs, croissants, strawberries, and a nice cold glass of ice-tea. It was perfect.
Since it was Monday, we still had work but there was only an hour difference from when we both came home. We watched ‘The Uninvited’, which he thought was quite confusing in the end, but I thought it had a really interesting twist of a plot. Afterwards we casually went out for pizza and ice-cream at a nearby restaurant and just caught the sunset as we were walking home. We were going to stop in the field to pick out shapes in the clouds like corny couples do, but the highly suspicious and unusual stare-down from a neighbour kept us walking. And on top of that, all the clouds were simultaneously drifting like similar cotton candy blobs.
When we got home we decided to enlighten the day by doing something out of the ordinary- by that I mean whipping up some hash brownies. Come on, my boyfriend lives in Amsterdam, of course we’re going to try it! It took a while for it to kick in, but as we ate our fail of a batch, we played about 20 games of LoL (or so it seemed) and the remedy began. Ashe is one of my favourite heroes to play and let me tell you, it was so extremely difficult to shoot my ulti when I barely had control over the mouse. Not to mention everything around me already looked like flying arrows. The brownies had a pretty long lasting effect, accompanied by ridiculous fatigue = not very fun. But that was basically our Valentine’s Day! Unfortunately, I can’t say that I remember making love to top off the evening, but I’m sure it was hilarious if we tried.
I hope this was a happy read, and I hope you all had a wonderful/non-sucky Valentine’s Day! Please feel free to comment about your Valentine’s Day, or any previous Valentine’s Day experiences.
