Valentine’s Day

handsI hope you all had a nice day filled with lots of ¬†love, I sure had. Mine started with a cup of coffee with Rene this morning. We are not really into buying gifts for each other on Valentine’s Day because we think you should be able to buy your loved ones a gift on any day of the year. Besides, giving someone a present when they least expect one is so much more fun (I love surprised faces). We do however developed a tradition since our first Valentine’s Day together; eating cheesecake! Last year I made one myself but since we’re lacking an oven in this apartment I wasn’t able to make one myself this year. We’ve tried some cheesecake at many different spots so far, but the New York Cheesecake from Starbucks is still our all time favorite. So after work today we headed over to the Starbucks for a cappuccino and a piece of cheesecake.

Valentine’s Day should be more about spending time with your loved ones instead of buying gifts for each other. So I’m heading back to the couch now for more ‘House of Cards’. Have a good weekend everyone!
