if it's valentine's day, then you've gotta plan it

the alpha boy didn't really know when was valentine's day despite it being the second one that we would be celebrating together. the first thing that clued him in that there was even some occasion coming up was a few weeks ago when while with him, i came upon a special holographic card which would have been a perfect unique valentine's day card. since i hardly went to that shop, i jokingly told him to go away while i made my purchase. this of 'coz started his wheels turning and wondering what occasion could it be.

he realised immediately even though he didn't know yet what date valentine's day was. and as the next few weeks passed, i wasn't entirely convinced that there was any plan on his side to begin with.

say what you will. that maybe valentine's day is commercialised and overpriced and that you don't need that one day to show your love. and possibly all that is true. but as a girl, it kinda feels nice to just have that one day, commercialised as it may be, where the guy plans something to celebrate.

it was nice to know that eventually (after some hints with the help of yahoo articles sent his way) the alpha boy did have a plan to, in his own words, celebrate on one day what he had every day of the year, which was a wonderful girlfriend. and even though it didn't involve fancy restaurants or expensive gifts, it was a sweet plan.

we spent sunday evening having a picnic in the park watching dogs play and eating simple sandwiches that he made.

Even though it must've been annoying to have to remind him of such a common holiday, a picnic in the park sounds really sweet! I think that's even nicer than a dinner at an overly priced restaurant :)
