Do you have a Best Ever Valentine’s story to tell?
February is the month of love with Valentine’s Day in the middle. I often think of and remember my Best Ever Valentine’s Day.
‘The love of my life’ and I decided we would take a couple of days off from an insanely hectic life and spend it at a small, beautiful and exclusive resort.
Valentine’s Day morning, ‘the love of my life’, was happy to read the newspaper whilst I went shopping. I still hadn’t bought anything for him. It had to be something unique and very special. I believed our break away was his gift to me.
Walking around the shops, inspiration eluded me until I looked in a gift shop window and saw a white gift box with a red ribbon. Then the idea struck, I bought a pack of notelets, went to a coffee shop, and whilst enjoying a coffee, I wrote one thing I loved about him on each piece of notepaper. There were over 100 notelets and I used all of them. The waiter helped me hold the lid on whilst I tied the ribbon around the box.
We enjoyed a long leisurely lunch together and as we went back to our Villa he told me he had a surprise for me. The stairs leading to the bathroom had two hearts outlined in flower petals. Inside, the bathtub was a sea of flowers. It took my breath away. There were candles all around the room, soft romantic music playing and the most divine aromatherapy. I was to relax for as long as I felt like it. At sometime I drifted off to sleep – it was the most heavenly experience I’ve had yet.
Afterwards, he had arranged a picnic dinner for the two of us on the bank of the beach. We watched the sun set, I gave him his gift, and for every note of love for him he verbally returned one to me. The chemistry between us was electric, the emotional compatibility was magnetic, spiritually we felt we had been together since the beginning of time and our intellectual compatibility took us to the depths of the earth. We saw the moon and the sun come up and we talked the whole night throught. It was wonderful. It was my Best Ever Valentine’s Day.
To the love of my life:-
Even if the sun refused to shine
Even if romance ran out of rhyme
You will still have my heart
Till the end of time
