Valentine’s Day 2017


I actually said to my husband a few weeks back, “Hey, take me out on Valentine’s day!” in a persuasive-I-shouldn’t-be-the-one-asking-this tone. He just laughed at my eagerness to go out on a date (which we haven’t done for a long time). And then I got a text from him while he was at work telling me to look for a restaurant to eat at on Heart’s Day. I was so excited I even downloaded apps that lets me explore different dining places. 🙂 

I miss my husband all the time. I miss the old days when it was just about him and I, when we were hooked at watching movies every weekend, when he used to hold my hands while strolling, when he used to serve me food, etc. We had to let go of so many things now that we have kids. Majority of both our attentions are with them and just a tiny bit is left for each other. At the end of the day, we’re  both exhausted from our busy, non-ending duties as human beings. All the romance is gone for now, instead our weekends are spent playing with our kids, we hold on to those little hands especially when outdoors, and we feed those tiny mouths with good food. What’s left of us as couple are those glances that aren’t romantic but more of on the parenting side.

Life as a married couple is totally different from our previous lives. We have to do a little bit of sacrifice so that we could form our kids beautifully. I’m just so glad that Valentine’s day gives us a chance and a reason to do whatever we want as a couple. 

I will always look forward to Valentine’s Day because it would mean hours spent with my husband, just us, no kids. Just a decent meal will do. 😊

A Trip

Five days from now, my husband and I will officially reach our second wedding anniversary. And two days from now, we’re off to out most awaited trip to Seoul, South Korea.

I told V that every year I want us to celebrate our anniversary in a form of travel. Not necessarily expensive and splurge-it-all kind, but anywhere to spend the whole day for just the two of us is fine (Yup, just us. NO KIDS). A hotel staycation or a mini getaway would be perfect.

This year, he told me that we should go to Korea since it’s both our dream to go there. We watch Korean drama series and it would be nice to actually see the place in person. He said now is the time because we haven’t started building our house and the kids doesn’t go to school yet. I was so excited and happy, I cried! Yes, I am a cry baby. 🙂

After months of searching for promo fares and planning our itinerary, we got lucky and found an affordable all-in package that includes airfare, hotels, tours and meals.

So it’s happening soon. Just a few more days and we’ll have temporary freedom from our mind-blowing, everyday snapping, crazy yet fun toddler life. It would be the longest time I will be far away from my kids. I’m gonna miss them for sure but Mommy needs some time to recharge and have fun too. And I’m taking their Dad with me! Haha!

Excited much, B.
