While I think that Valentine’s Day is largely a racket created by candy companies and greeting cards, driving people in droves to their local CVS or corner florist for flowers and candy, I’m not going to lie–it’s nice having a valentine you truly love who also happens to know exactly the ways to spoil you.
I don’t mean to brag, and I know it may come across as obnoxious, but honestly–dude deserves a blog shout out, at the very least. When I got home from work Monday evening, I was greeted by a card taped to the front door. Inside the card was a checklist of hints for a scavenger hunt around the apartment, where I found the following (in addition to some peanut butter cups, a Starbucks gift card, new pillows for our bed, and a bottle of honey whiskey):
A lovely jewelry organizer–it’s perfect, because all of my earrings and necklaces were previously jumbled into two jewelry boxes and I could never find anything I wanted!
The perfect polka dot dress
A case for my Kindle because I mistakenly ordered a case for the wrong model
And perhaps my favorite of all, a commissioned portrait of Chief.
We ended the night with a lovely, delicious dinner at Al di La--highly recommended. I know, I’m spoiled. Mostly, I just feel incredibly lucky to have so much love in my life, with or without all these nice presents.
I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day!
