I thought I will leave it for a day – a theme in pink to celebrate the flavour of the day. I asked the one who I would celebrate Valentine’s Day with, of what she thought about it, and then I reset my blog theme. (in case you missed it – Gaizabonts was pink for 3 minutes, a few minutes ago). Deep down, I was happy that the commercial pink didn’t make her feel all loveable and romantic.
And I love that about her. She isn’t one of the pink (and shades of red) brigade. I don’t have to do the roses and search for heart-shaped gift boxes (although I suspect she wouldn’t mind; it just helps (me) that I am impervious to the hints).
We had a good Valentine’s eve. We talked long of things said and unsaid. Amongst other things we planned to argue about true love. It isn’t much of an argument when you agree about things – especially true love.
So we found something else. Over all the things packed and ready to go in our new home. Over things that we cherish; like we do each other.
Don’t underestimate the power of a muffin in candlelight.
