Valentine's Day Recap

Valentine's Day brought me and Ruel back to our favorite out-of-town getaway....Tagaytay.
My Tootsieroll went out on a date so Hunnybed had me all to himself.  

He initially just planned a simple dinner at a restaurant but upon hearing that I wanted to go on a road trip I think he changed his mind because he suddenly announced that we were going to Tagaytay.  

That's my Hunnybed....always trying his best to give me everything I want just to make me happy. I'm one lucky woman!

We ate at Taal Vista Hotel, and went home right after.  There was no more time to go around afterwards because Tagaytay's roads were filled with cars of couples and families from Metro Manila. In fact, the usual one hour and a half ride from Tagaytay back to our house became a very  slow ride that took more than five hours!!!

Despite the terrible drive back to  Metro Manila, Hunnybed's temper didn't show.  He was as patient as could be and I really appreciated that.  I knew that he controlled his temper and impatience because he wanted to keep me happy until the end of our date.  This is just one of the reasons I love him so!

I didn't receive a bouquet of flowers this year but I received A Wealth of Flowers, In Bloom, A Hint of Citrus and a Happy Heart all in one box.

He gave me the gift the night before the 14th and I gave him his the night after the 14th.

It was actually kind of awkward because he came home from work while I was tying the bow....made me throw a little tantrum (out of embarrassment and frustration), gave him the box with the unfinished bow then afterwards changed my mind, took the gift back and finished tying the bow.  Weird huh?

Well, if you want to know what's inside, it's just a simple Parker pen with the engraving "Dad of 3 angels" (That's what he is--a dad of three angels).  My meager salary as a teacher could only afford this. But hey, it's the thought that counts, right?

So that's how Valentine's Day went for me this year.  

How did your day turn out?

I hope you felt as loved as I felt.


  1. Glad you guys had a nice date night! I can't imagine the five hours of traffic though! Glad it didn't spoil your evening :)
