This year for Valentines Day, my sweetie got me a box full of chocolate seashells. I can't tell you how much I like those delicious spirals of confectionary delight. They send shivers down my back just thinking about them. These chocolate seashells were bought from Godiva chocolate by him which, in my opinion, is possibly the best chocolate maker which has ever graced my mouth with its tender morsels of pure delight.
I love chocolate seashells very much. Besides the chocolate
seashells, he also bought me roses, and took me out to the most romantic
evening that you can imagine. First off, we went to this lovely little
Italian restaurant, and sat outside on a little alley terrace with the
early evening sky showing through above, and a little candle in a basket
on the table.
Then we went to a walk on the beach to watch the sunset. It was one of those spectacular sunsets with all oranges and pinks and golden. It filled the entire sky with glowing. I chewed on chocolate seashells as we
contemplated the waves, held each others hands and kissed. The big surprise
was the early evening cruise. You might think this is strange timing for
the cruise and that it might make more sense just to watch the sunset,
but you'd be wrong. Instead, we got to watch the twilight darken into
night, and the stars come out amongst the darkness of the waves and the
blackening sky. We kissed under a full moon and felt the breeze ruffle
our hair. I'll tell you, there's nothing on earth like watching the night
wind rise it beats sunrise hands down, no matter what you say. Finally,
we drove to an adorable bed and breakfast place nearby the ocean and stayed,
pampered, soaking until late in the evening in the hot tub.
The next morning, the breakfast we had was delicious and adorable. Cute little croissants shaped like starfish topped with delicious homemade marmalade and whipped butter. The town it was quaint, and we got to walk around, watching farmers go about their daily routine and looking at the little puffy clouds going by. We got to go hiking along the trails, and to explore the local tourist attractions, which was fun if a little corny at times. And now I have the rest of the weekend to enjoy with him. I'll tell you, I'm the luckiest girl in the world.
