This morning Eric jumped out of bed with my alarm and ran to met me in the hall. He had his hands behind his back with a big grin on his face. The first thought that popped into my head was the same one that you all thought. This thought quickly flew out of my head because I had explicitly told him never to propose on Valentine ’s Day.
He handed me a 1/2 pound box of See’s chocolate, hand picked by him. He knows my love of See’s chocolate runs very deep, and although I am not a big fan of Valentine’s Day (corporate, retail, Hallmark Holiday, Blah Blah Blah,) I am a HUGE fan of See’s chocolate. Note I said SEE’s chocolate. Not your everyday chocolate bar.
I quickly opened the box to see the selection of tasty treats he especially picked out for me. This is something he has been trying to perfect since we started dating. He got almost all of them right. Although the See’s Lady put in Dark Chocolate Bourdeuxs instead of Milk, BAD SEE’s LADY! The one tasty treat which wasn’t in my favorites list was a row of Milk Chocolate Chocolate Buttercreams. I adore regular Milk Chocolate Buttercreams with the Vanilla center.
This is the most endearing part of this valentines goal of his. Every year he tries to very hard to please me with this token of his love, and every year, he ends up with one buttercream that I don’t really enjoy. He even asked for the right kind, but when the lady asked him “Did you want the ones with the Chocolate or Vanilla center”, he panicked and switched up his response and said the chocolate ones.
Now don’t anyone of you even start to think that I’m complaining. This man went to the store and stood in a long line to get me my favorite sweets. I love him so, and will enjoy and savor every single one of those chocolates because they are little bits of his love.
I love you, LOVEY!
