Valentine Weekend

Every year, I really don't know what to make of Valentine's Day. I don't dislike it. I don't find myself agreeing with the haters who would rather dismiss it as another commercial holiday. But I don't find myself emotionally connected to it the way I do with Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas.

I am not sure if I even need to compare it with the bigger holidays. I just know this. The thought of going to a crowded restaurant with overpriced meals and difficult parking is not my idea of celebrating Valentine's Day. I am all for simple ways of celebrating my love for my husband.

Robert loves an excuse to demonstrate love. He loves Valentine's. He loves the meaning of the holiday. Because it means the world to him, I choose to celebrate it with him.

And I cannot imagine a woman who does not want to be romanced!

Our weekend was filled with quality time, laughter and little ways of showing how much we value each other! Thank God for a husband who makes an effort to make his wife feel special.

Here is how we spent Valentine weekend.

Walked around Eastwood City


Robert left a letter on my laptop


My sister Maia made this Valentine photo for us


Got a rose :-)


Watched Valentine's Day with friends


Wrapped a present for Robert


Wrote a card for him


He made me a great cup of coffee and a heart-shaped tikoy for breakfast


Robert was trying to hide in the bathroom waiting for me to be "surprised"


Another letter on my laptop :-)


Finally found the best burgers in Metro Manila!










Shared a cup of frozen yogurt


Posed in this cheesy Titanic poster


Attended Sunday worship service


Listened to Robert exhort the congregation


Had Cold Rock ice cream after service




Had Iced Tea Lattes at CBTL


Watched "Love Happens"


Had dinner in Astralis the following evening, the 15th (most restaurants are empty!)










Seattle's Best with friends Lille and Adam

That's such a fun-filled Valentine's weekend. How I wish all couples would be like you two.
