Valentine's Day


Hello you lovely lot! So, Valentine's Day has came and gone and left in it's wake a deluge of discount chocolates and many an engagement echoing loudly on Facebook. Martin and I spent the day giggling away at nothing in particular, so blissfully happy to have each other another year, accomplishing all on our clichéd checklist: exchanging grotesquely gooey Valentine's cards in the morning, being presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers in the afternoon and overindulging in some rich food and drinks (and sex) in the evening. Dare I say - it was a lovely day. 

As ironic as it sounds, I've always had a love/hate relationship with Valentine's Day, not fully comprehending how people can be so in love with love, showering their significant other with flowers and surprises and spontaneous trips to Paris. To me, Valentine's is a day dedicated to the other person: work stops and all other responsibility is put on hold, it's almost as if time freezes and you're caught in a blissful bubble for just one day with this other person. You both laugh a little harder and hold hands a little tighter, all because of this glorious given day. 




 
  1. I completely agree with all of what you say. It feels as though time has stopped and your in your own little bubble with that other person. What a lovely bouquet of flowers too, I bet you were over the moon! It's good to hear you had a lovely day :) xxx

  5. I know some people hate Valentines Day and think 'you should do that everyday' but for me it's like Christmas, you make that bit of extra effort and spend quality time together and it can be really special! Lovely to hear that you had a good day! xx

  7. I never put too much importance to Vakentines day myself. However, it sounds like you had a loveky time. ^.^
    My Valentine's day consisted of pizza, chocolate cake, pampering, and Netflix. Hahaha

  8. This is such a lovely post - I've seen so much hate surrounding Valentine's Day but I really don't see the problem with a day dedicated to the cheesy, happy, ridiculous side of love. '... so in love with love' is a wonderful way to consider it.

    p.s. I know it's silly but you're the first person who has admitted Valentine's Day and nookie go hand in hand that I actually felt genuinely surprised when I read the word 'sex', haha!

  9. I totally agree with you. Fair enough the traditional presents are a bit cheesy but spending the day together and remembering to cherish each other is a great thing :D xxx
