I can understand the hype of Valentine's Day.. flowers, chocolates, balloons, jewelry, fancy restaurants, and a lot more. I've "celebrated" Vday with my friends during my younger years and I didn't care whether or not I was in a relationship. My husband and I don't really do anything fancy on Vday, most likely because we don't want to join the flock of people in restaurants or in any other places. For some reasons, I don't like being in a place with too much people anymore. Am I the only one?
My husband brought me one dozen of Sweet Little Things cupcakes, his favorite which became my favorite too.
Days before Vday, I was already thinking of what I'm going to give him. I'm sure he won't mind if I don't give anything but I feel like doing something artsy and something that I really put my heart into. Years ago, I've already tried giving him a wristwatch, Black Forest cake, and even boxer shorts! He said he appreciates everything but to me, none of those gifts feel like something I really thought of carefully. So this time, I came up with this.. It's always the thought that counts right? At least to me..
It's actually pretty simple. I cut out 100 hearts in red and white, wrote one reason on each heart, and placed them all inside a box that I also assembled on my own. Then I cut out a piece of white cardboard and used my letter stickers to make the 100 Reasons Why I Love You. There! A gift that I actually put all my heart into. When I was writing the reasons, I was actually laughing.. and smiling. I'm pretty satisfied with the outcome. And of course, it's not to say that I only have 100 reasons because the reasons are countless. You know what I mean. :) Everyday, there's always a reason to love.
So aside from love, care, time, and affection, what's the best gift you've given or received on a Vday? I hope you enjoyed your Valentine's Day! ♥
