Valentine's day



Happy Valentine's day !. My name is Valentina and therefore I couldn't ignore this day ;-).
I know, many of you just dislike this day cause it is a very commercial celebration and also other people will find it annoying cause they are single and believe me, I do understand...I have been there, done that.
As for me, when I was a single girl I used to buy myself a present on this day and I got presents cause it was my "name day" and in Italy we celebrate it ;-) smart, uh ?.
Just keep in mind that we don't have to give this day too much importance. It's just a nice day when many couples celebrate and try to be more romantic than usual, that's all. It's not like we have to be romantic only on Valentine's day or that we have to use it rub off our happiness in front of other people.
The anniversary is much more personal, for a couple, of course. I am already thinking what to do for my first wedding anniversary that will be in July, so mind you !.


Buon San Valentino ! Il mio nome è Valentina e pertanto non potevo ignorare questo giorno in nessun caso ;-).
Lo so, molti di voi non amano questa giornata in quanto troppo commerciale, altri la odieranno perché single e credetemi, vi capisco perfettamente...ci sono passata anche io.
Per quanto riguarda me, anche da single mi sono sempre fatta un regalo per questo giorno e ho anche ricevuto auguri e regali in quanto mio onomastico e in Italia molti lo festeggiano ;-), forte no ?.
Ricordiamoci solo che non dobbiamo dare una importanza estrema a questa giornata. E' una giornata speciale nella quale molte coppie festeggiano cercando di essere più romantiche del solito, non significa che occorra essere romantici solo a San Valentino o che debba essere una occasione per sfoggiare le proprie relazioni amorose davanti a tutti.
Ad esempio, un anniversario è sicuramente una data più speciale per ogni coppia, è un giorno unico, infatti io sto già pensando a cosa programmare per il primo anniversario di matrimonio che sarà a luglio, immaginate !.

Anyway, aside from spending Valentine's day at work, in the office, then hubby and I will go on a dinner date. I will be in the office waiting for a relaxing, nice dinner with my husband, it's our first Valentine's day as a married couple !. In my dreams of a very romantic person, I'd like our dinner to be like one of the following options:

Comunque, a parte trascorrere gran parte del mio S. Valentino in ufficio, mio marito ed io andremo a cena fuori. Resterò in ufficio in attesa di una cenetta rilassante con mio marito, il nostro primo S. Valentino da coppia sposata !. Nei miei sogni di persona romantica, mi piacerebbe che la nostra cena si svolgesse secondo una delle seguenti opzioni:








Ok, I wish our dinner was like in one of those pictures...but I know we'll be in a nice restaurant filled with other people, maybe slow service, feeling both a bit tired for the day spent in the office...but everything will be ok anyway, cause the company is gonna make it special ;-).

Ok, vorrei che la nostra cena fosse come in una delle immagini mostrate...so invece che saremo in un bel ristorante pieno di gente, probabilmente servizio lento, sentendoci entrambi un po' stanchi dopo una giornata di lavoro...ma tutto sarà a posto comunque, sarà la compagnia a rendere la cena speciale ;-).





Anyway, even if you dislike Valentine's day, my wish for you all is to be happy, either if you are in a couple or you are single. And above all, never settle for less, often it happens at work but it doesn't have to happen with friendship and with love. Surround yourself with people that make you feel good and demand the big love, always. Believe.

Comunque, anche per chi odia San Valentino, il mio augurio per tutti è di essere felici, che siate in coppia o meno. E soprattutto, non vi accontentatevi di meno di ciò che meritate, spesso accade sul lavoro ma non deve accadere in amicizia e anche in amore. Circondatevi di persone che vi fanno stare bene e pretendete il grande amore, sempre. Credeteci.

  14. Happy Valentine's Day to you! I agree with you that those who are a couple should cherish each other everyday and not just on Valentine's Day. For those who are single, they should enjoy being single till the day the right person comes along.

    I'm sure you will have a great anniversary dinner soon =)
