there is a reason, why I chose exactly this photo for today’s page of my diary. When I look at this photo one thought comes to my mind: waiting for something and not knowing what will come. Staring to a closed door and waiting till someone opens it. There are always moments in our life when we know, that something will happen or maybe something will change our life, but we don’t know exactly what and the only thing we can do is waiting. I am sitting here, on my meditation cushion, I am staring to the door of my beloved apartment and I am waiting. The clean and quiet establishment of my apartment soothes and calms my mind and my soul. I like to have enough space to breath, to let my mind and my soul break out, to dance and to fly. I am listening to some kind of relaxation music. It’s a piano relaxation music and it is the music of one of my very favorite French movies. Deep in my heart I know, that there is no reason for me to be upset. In the end, everything will be alright. I like these moments in my life when I can feel everything around me because I stopped my world turning around for some minutes, some hours or maybe a day.
All the confusion started with the one and only sentence of my husband two days ago: ,,This year for Valentine’s Day you will not get flowers from me”. He smiled and twinkled like he wanted to kid me.
Well, after this sentence I had to swallow several times. I asked myself what was going wrong, that my husband now wants to break traditions. And all people who know me know, that I love traditions and that they mean everything to me. How could my husband destroy my world of harmony and peace with only one sentence? I don’t know, I don’t understand. I am still reflecting and I don’t see any reason. Is it a joke or is he serious? I will see…
Our plans for Valentine’s Day
The only thing I know by now is, that my husband wants to invite me to a Valentine’s brunch on the weekend and that this Valentine’s brunch will be at one of the top ten restaurants that are on my gourmet bucket list. Yes, I also have a gourmet bucket besides many other bucket lists. Maybe I have already mentioned that my husband and I love to spend a lot of money for good food. With good food people can buy my soul.
I entertained the idea of decorating the whole apartment with white roses and candles for a beautiful evening together with my husband. But after calculating that our apartment is around 100 square meters and that for this I would need to buy tons of roses, I have to come up with a better idea.
Last minute Valentine’s Day gift guide
There are so many traditional presents on a Valentine’s Day gift guide and therefore I decided to pick out some extraordinary presents that are not only functional, but rather beautiful and for a lifetime. I like the fine porcelain from VERSACE very much and because my home decoration is very clean and quiet this colorful and glamorous tableware is perfect for me. And the good thing about these items is, that both partners would have a lot of joy.
