Celebrating Four Years of Love


Waters cascading through the rocks and splashes through the leaves and plants surrounding the waterfalls as I inhale the cool breeze of the night. Two bamboo torches lit the area on both sides few meters away from the dinner  table. In the middle of the wasteland lies a romantic table set-up. A red faint colored tablecloth atop a table set up set with a red long stem rose inside a long necked crystal vase. Two glasses of champagne with red wine and two dinner plates each served with different menu. One plate with lamb chops and couscous on the side and the other one is served with mouth watering baked salmon with BLT on the side. How romantic isn’t it?

I have always wanted to have a romantic dinner just like what I have imagined. How I wish I would be able to set-up a table just like it or closer enough except for the waterfalls thingy as the background. I want our anniversary to be something worth reminiscing, as it is the time that we commemorate how love came about and flourished over time. Last year was an epic fail so I really tried my best to do something worth remembering this time.

Months ago, I was discreetly planning already and carefully looking around the web where and what to get on our big day carefully sticking to the small amount I had saved for it. But due to some unavoidable circumstances, the small amount was used to some other important matters. Some things just won’t really turn out the way you expect it to happen no matter the serious planning. So I had to cross out some of the portions and ended up setting the table in a candle lit dinner and prepared a meal for four and got an indecent cake from a nearby bakeshop. (Note to self: not to get a cake from them anymore or ask them to put a dedication on it as it was terribly done!) I also made a DIY banner (you know how I love doing DIYs).


When he arrived home, turns out that he also got me a cake and bouquet of flowers. So we had to finish two cakes in a row and enjoy them with the kids. I am just glad at least in a matter of an hour; we had a candlelit dinner enjoyed with the kids at the comfort of our home.


Happy fourth my love! Hope I made you happy even if it was just as simple meal. I love for so many reasons even if you have a lot more ways to annoy me. I love you even if you don't use your eyes looking for missing things. I love you even if you have a scribbled penmanship. I still love you forever and to the moon and back!
