It’s hearts day today. Happy Valentine’s Day!
For the past few days I’ve been thinking of ways how to celebrate the day with my beloved wife. She’s been busy the past couple of weeks because of her work, sometimes even spending some weekends at the office. I want her to just spend some time to rest a little while and take some time off. So, instead of going somewhere, we planned to just stay at home and celebrating with something a little bit personal.
It’s a bit tricky to pull up a surprise for something you spend almost 24 hours everyday with. I wanted to surprise her before she wakes up. And so, I got up early this morning to buy some flowers for my beautiful and loving wife. It was still dawn. I walked the dimly lit walkway down to the train station. The flower shop is about 7 stations away. It’s about 30 to 40 minutes trip back and forth so I figured I still had quite a few minutes before my wife wakes up.
Just before sunrise, I arrived at our sweet home. I sneaked into our love nest quietly. But as soon as I stepped inside, my wife woke up. My wife being a very observant lady that she is, caught me holding the bouquet of dozen roses, trying very hard to hide it. I just smiled, kissed my wife and greeted her a happy valentine’s day. Yes, she was surprised. Not in the way I imagined, but I’ll take it anytime. As long as my wife is happy, I am happy.
What a way to get the heart’s day started. How about you? How did you celebrate valentine’s day?
