A Little Surprise on Valentines Day

Let me share with you how my Valentines Day ended. I really thought that this would end normally, like any other day. But then, unexpectedly, there are people who appreciates me and wanted my to feel their love through their simple gestures – these are my parents and my sister. πŸ’•

The surprise started with this video. I was sending my SO an update of my whereabouts through this video. I was telling him that I am outside (by our veranda) and my sister just arrived. Before this, I was calling my sister asking her of her whereabouts since it’s past school hours and she isn’t home yet. I even joked that she was doing “lakwatsa” (Filipino term for wandering around for leisure). And then she blurted out, “Lakwatsa pala ha, eh para sayo ito” (Wandering around ha, but these are all for you). Turns out, she brought stuff to surprise me. πŸ’• πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ©πŸ©πŸ©

She went home late because right after school, she went to buy bouquets of flowers and set of Valentine-special donuts for me. There are two bouquets – one is from my parents who are currently away and one is from my sister. They are so sweeeeeet to remember me today. πŸ’πŸŒ·βš˜πŸŒΌπŸŒ±πŸŒ»πŸŒΉπŸ₯€

And yes, I took pictures even without makeup and in my house clothes. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

Beautiful flowers, right? Now that I’ve got a little bit older, I have this *feels* of not wanting anything to die, or wither, or just vanish. I know these flowers won’t last a lifetime, but at least let me try to keep them longer.

The day after Valentines Day.

Given that fact, the next day, I went to the home and furniture shop to buy small flower vases to place these flowers and some pots where I can replant some.

Now this is what I did:

After that, I dismantled the bouquets and just arranged the flowers randomly in the vases.

There were five small vases with beautiful flowers. I would place these in (1) my room, (2) my sister’s room, (3) dining area, (4) living room, and (5) patio. πŸ’πŸŒΈπŸŒΉ

Lovely! But since it has gone dark and I couldn’t replant anymore, I have to pass and just do the replanting the next day.

The day after….

The above photos are the flowers I chose to replant. πŸ™‚

Since I lack soil, I couldn’t replant anymore the white roses. The petals are already falling off and I don’t think it can still wait until I get a bag of soil for it. However, in order to make it last longer, I placed it in a used but cleaned wine bottle. This wine was consumed during my pre-Valentine date with my SO early this February πŸ’•πŸΎπŸ·

So here’s my whole set of babies, I am happy to share them all with you! πŸ’•

That’s all for my Valentines Day and the days after. Now your turn! How did your Valentines Day go? Did you celebrate it? I’d loooooove to hear your stories on the comment box below πŸ’•
