And I’m posting about it now lest I forget it will happen a week from now. Although it’s nearing, the date hasn’t stirred much in me more than the fact that it’s Daddy’s birthday. And the truth is discounting those days when I freely and heartily give my friends hand-made Valentine’s day cards, the rest of my “grown up” years didn’t care much about the occasion anymore. Well, let me rephrase that. I didn’t care much about V-day until that happened two years ago.
Fluffy and I have been steadies (yuk, what a term!) for less than a month when something fluffy and hearty happened on that day of February.
Of course it was our first V-day together and at the back of my mind, I was hoping for something. But the day passed without a hint from each other about that certain occasion we have to somehow celebrate. I can’t remember what exactly happened during the rest of the day. But what I vividly recall was the surprise I felt when I came to the office to do some overtime work.
After opening my PC, for some reason, I opened the last of the 3 drawers of my desk. Guess what I saw?
A rose and a card!
The guy had some guts to surprise me, I thought. I was flattered it was the first rose I ever got in my entire 22 years of existence (that time). When I read the card, I even more amazed when all I could find were these these words… For my Love, My Life, and My Wife. (Haha, okay I revealed that sappy side of Fluffy. He’s fluffy for nothing!)
I was pretty much in the giddy state that time. But I didn’t expect something had yet to amplify the giddiness.
For some reason (again), I opened the first drawer in my desk.
Whoa! A red, fluffy, heart-shaped key-chain embroidered with the words “I love you” and another card!
That time, I figured out the pattern and on the second drawer laid yet another card and Ferrero Rocher in a heart-shaped case!
I was ecstatic after that kind of surprise my Fluffy planned. Although that wasn’t the first time he treated to such amazement (which I have yet to tell in another post).
Isn’t it wonderful to be treated that way? What do you plan to give your beloved on V-day?
You might want to try 1-800-flowers.com and look for those perfect valentines day gifts for your special someone. The site offers a lot of choices for your varied tastes. Roses, flowers, chocolates, teddy bears, potted plants, you name it.
If I were a guy and would choose to give my beloved a surprise, I’d opt for Valentine’s Day Chocolates and Sweets (as I’d prefer chocolates than flowers as a girl). Hehe. On the other hand, we don’t really have much choice as women as to what to give the men, do we? But this list might give us an idea.
