Yes you read that right. And yes I am talking about the big V-day a.k.a. Valentine's Day.
On Valentine's Day most women get their hopes up - thanks to crafty commercials that portray men as wonderful, thoughtful creatures (sorry guys I know you mean well) - and then when their significant other doesn't live up to those expectations they become disappointed.
So much pressure for just one day.
Know with that stated I love Valentine's Day. I'm not really sure why, but I do. Even as a single girl I looked forward to V-Day, and last year was a great V-Day spent with Vivi. Maybe its the hope that it brings. The hope of love and of good things to come.
I am excited cause Marine will be coming home this weekend (I haven't seen him in over a month)! That is the best Valentine gift I could have asked for. We have both agreed that what we decide to do will depend on the weather. We were hoping for a sunny day in which we could saddle the horses and go for a ride and a picnic. But the weatherman shattered that perfect image with the promise of snow in the forecast.
Marine and I decided we would play it by ear, but knowing that all restaurants will be packed we said we would celebrate Valentine's Day when I go up there in a few weeks. It's not when you celebrate anyway, it's what you celebrate. Celebrate each other and the love you have.
Ahh but Marine is always a little sneaky and he said he had something in mind that we could do Sunday. Of course he won't tell me what it is, because I think we have all learned he is the master of surprises!
But that's ok I have a few surprises of my own. I got the pictures back from the photo shoot and they turned out excellent! Who knew I had a sexy look? I for one didn't! Now perhaps I should state these pictures are very tasteful, everything is covered up and they are artistically done.
Marine knew about the photo shoot but he doesn't know of the different things I wore, such as his dress blues jacket *wink, wink*! So he is sure to be surprised.
