it’s quite fun being in love. i really really enjoy it! being with someone who you can spoil. make her smile. ooh wow, her smile!
i’m quite a romantic, or so i would hope. i have all these ideas running through my head of how i can make her day just a little bit better. from spoiling her, to doing the manly stuff. the stuff a man is supposed to do!
manly stuff you wonder? ya! like being her gentleman. opening the door for her, carrying her bags, etc.
now, on to the romantic stuff. ever felt the need to woo the person you love? hell, i get the need almost every time! for instance, had this awesome plan for our anniversary, gathered all the required resources, and nailed it!
the idea simply was, get her flowers. but not just any flowers, five specific flowers. each complementing an attribute, emotion, or quality of hers. and i did just that. so that was step 1 of my plan.
step 2, i placed a letter in her notebook, so that once she’s at the office she’ll open it. in the letter, i only hinted at what she might expect for the rest of the day.
next up, deliver these flowers, individually, on an hourly basis. luckily, at the time i was able to drive around, without any work related responsibilities. the first flower i dropped off was around 10h00, the second was at 11h00. this went until the last flower was dropped off at 14h00. every flower, representing something i adore of her, had each a little envelope, titled with the attributes and qualities. did i mention i sealed the envelopes, and letter with wax and an old school heart stamp? written (printed - this is the digital age after all) in a stylish cursive text. she likes my cologne, so, naturally, i scented the letters with the cologne. an added extra!
so, by 14h00, she had five individual flowers, each with a note, that smelled like me.
step 3, i made a bouquet of the (five) flowers used. it was huge! wrote the last letter, sealed it with the same wax, using the same heart stamp, and sprayed my cologne over it. this letter was simple. ”individually, your qualities are beautiful. but put all together, breathtakingly gorgeous!” i left the bouquet in her room, for her to discover (not that it was hard, it was massive!) with the note attached to it.
however, i wasn’t done yet. the next part of my plan entailed an evening dinner, where i would bestow a gift. quite simply, it’s a ring. but the presentation, once again, is what made it special. i had a heart, made out of wire. it worked like a locket, but you could see through it, and it was quite big. easily filled the palm of your hand. within the wired-heart-locket was a flower, a pink rose. attached to the pink rose, was a ring. the ring itself, has seven hearts, filled with 91 small diamonds.
needless to say, she loved it!
it’s fun being in love, don’t you think?
