Love is…


“Love is over-thinking for the millionth time what you want to say,
rephrasing, cutting and pasting, editing until you’re out of rational thoughts – then not having to say any of it aloud
because he/she can feel every single one of your unspoken words.”
~ Estrella Azul

Valentine’s Day

I won’t write about how people came to celebrate the 14th of February as Valentine’s Day (you can find out the history behind it if you’re interested, by clicking the link). I just wanna share with you that I like it!S7003327-1

Not because this time of year all blogs start posting all sort of articles about how nice or bad it is (just like around any other holidays too :P), not because people in relationships exchange gifts, not because people who are not in a relationship get possessed by the thought of having to spend Valentine’s Day alone and immediately start seeking someone to be with for a few days just so they won’t be judged by anyone (this is a really stupid thing, I don’t get it…), not because all the shop windows, malls and so on, are filled with tonnes of little (or even exaggeratedly big) hearts, doves, Cupids, etc., not because of how on the actual day you can’t find a parking space and you bump into more people than usually, not because of the stupid mass messages filling your screen in a few seconds saying that if you don’t send them on you’ll be alone forever (get a life!!!) and not because of how expensive everything gets almost over night…

I like it because it’s a celebration of LOVE! Anyone can celebrate it even if their single or in a relationship, celebrate with family, friends and loved ones, it’s not a written rule that it can only be celebrated by couples (that’s just a stupid excuse to don’t like it).
I think it should be considered to be another good chance to thank the people we love for being there for us, for their patience, help, kind words. Because let’s face it, nobody remembers to appreciate the people around them all the time, or too often for that matter, they mostly do it on big international holidays… so why not on Valentine’s Day too? :)

I’m lucky to be able to celebrate my love for and with my Sweetheart each and every day, I am grateful that even after 3 years and 2 months we still say "I love you!" each morning when we wake up, during the day, and at night before we go to sleep. We try to make any day a great day, surprise each other from time to time with and e-card, a flower, chocolate, etc. and we succeed to don’t get into a dull routine :)
This Valentine’s Day we got each other small but significant gifts, even though I specifically said "No flowers this year", I got a very beautiful rose from my Sweetheart, and we went to see a movie ("Bride wars", it’s great, I recommend it to anyone who likes comedies) and had dinner, and overall it really was the lovely and romantic day I was looking forward to.
Thank you for this beautiful day Sweetheart, for the presents, and for the beautiful rose I got! And also happy 3 years and 2 months anniversary too! I love you :*:P

Some ramblings :P

Since Laura was so sweet today and said people are missing me over here, I decided to write something… I have a few thoughts to write about, but of course this would include me doing some thinking too, so don’t hold it against me if it doesn’t work out :P

Well anyway… let’s start with the beginning, shall we? :)
First of all, let me tell you how hard it is to buy a gift for someone: very hard! My Sweetheart’s birthday is on the 1st of February, and it was honestly hard to find just the right gift for him (being such a perfectionist doesn’t pay off in cases like this). I searched for quite a few days, started out with an idea, and then had to change it along the way… the important thing is that I’ve found a great gift -> which means that it won’t go to waste because he kind of needs it, so obviously it’s useful, and he’ll like it, which is really the most important :) Plus I’m baking the birthday cake too :D
But I’m not done yet… because now I get to focus on a Valentine’s Day gift (yes, I’m always efficient and think about/buy the present ahead of time, it saves me from the extra stress and rush). I kind of have half of it already, but it still needs some work since I’m the one making it, and I really can’t give him just that so I still need to go shopping and find something he’ll like, even though this time I have no idea that would suit my given finances at this point… And of course it doesn’t help that every time I ask him what he’d like he says: “I don’t know.” … so more amusement and head ache for me :P

Another thing that’s on my mind since last week is that since I’ve finished the floral artist course, now I have to find a job as soon as possible.
It’s okay on some level, cause I have a job lined up for me in the floral artist position at an acquaintance’s flower shop, basically she has so much work in the weekends when the weddings string starts from about march, that she needs another person to help her. So that’s gonna be from Friday afternoon ’till Sunday afternoon, but I’d love it if I could find something else to fill in the weekdays too, it would be a lot better (not to mention what a big help financially too)! And if I want to make my/our dream of living together with my Sweetheart come true, I really need 2 jobs (I’ll elaborate on this one another time when it will be closer to achieve).
I can see sadly, that these days it’s over with the: “get a job and live well” possibility, now it’s more like: “get a few jobs and still struggle”…

And I won’t even get started on how “easy” it is to find a good job, the essential is that: if you don’t have experience they won’t hire you, but if you’re not given the opportunity to work, how in the world could you have the experience they ask for???
And the fact that it’s a financial crisis
everywhere, that people are fried from a lot of places, etc.  doesn’t help eighter. What can I say? … “perfect” timing.

But at least I had a blast experimenting some recipe last weekend at my boyfriend’s (it was to die for!) and especially yesterday when I baked some very tasty muffins :D (yes, I’m one of those people who actually gets more relaxed by doing something like baking, cooking, cleaning :P)

I guess I did have something to write about after all :)

PS: the surprise gift-box from my arrangement is still alive, I’m so proud of it :D

check out this site with some crazy Valentine’s day gifts, click here. Hint to the toilet gift -> What will they think of next? A heart-shaped bucket for when both partners get sick? :P Sorry if my example was disgusting…
