Oh My! Sometimes I still find it hard to believe that we have been together for 10 years!! I mean, seriously? And when Kelvin told me that he had arranged something special for the 10th anniversary celebration, I was totally excited!
He asked me to pack for a getaway to a secret destination which he did not reveal…
And VOILA~ Here’s what I pack… Some basics with lots of fuchsia pink!
Ever since Isabelle’s born, Kelvin and I were making more of an effort to go on dates, spend more one-on-one time hanging out (even watching DVDs at home), and basically just trying to do a better job of making time for each other in general. As we got busier, we seemed to go on less dates and let life take over again. Don’t get me wrong, we work together and we are around each other constantly, so it’s not as if we don’t see each other, but it is important to set aside time for fun. And most of the time I have to admit that I am really bad at that.
So, here’s our anniversary dinner together with baby Isabelle :)
Isabelle had been behaving well and we manage to settle down to enjoy fabulous gourmet dinner followed by a decadent dessert. We talked about beautiful life moments we shared (while feeding Isabelle her biscuits) and took in the spectacular sunsets and the beauty of the skies and sea from our table.
After the dinner, we headed to a friend’s son’s 1st birthday party, and after that we sent Isabelle to my mum’s place so that we can spend some one-to-one time together for the rest of the night!
Here goes our getaway…
(Honestly, I still didn’t have a clue on where we are heading at that particular moment. But it was so intriguing…)
Oh well, I really felt like being on HONEYMOON again~
Just when I was busy tasting the specialty chocolates prepared by the hotel, something magical happened!
Kelvin took out a beautiful blue box from his small luggage and hand it over to me.
“Happy Anniversary!”, he said.
“Oh no, darling, but I didn’t prepare anything for you…”, I said.
“That’s okay, open it and see if you like it.” Still feeling a bit guilty, I started to unwrap the present.
IT’S THE SHOUROUK PINK NECKLACE!!!
It is so beautiful I think I almost burst into tears.
The craftsmanship is so incredibly stunning!
I hope I can show you how sparkly it is, but the picture doesn’t do justice to the sumptuous gradation of the crystals.
I really can’t recall when was the last time we had such luxurious lovely time together.
And woke up to this charming harbour view~
Eryn’s being dressy for a breakfast.
After the delicious breakfast, we decided to go splash some water.
We joked and laughed until we were on the verge of tears. And for a moment, I think I saw ourselves, a younger version of us. A loving boy taking pictures of the silly girl he loves.
After shower, we chilled a little on bed and day dream about future…
(well, that’s ME day dreaming and Kelvin playing mahjong with his Ipad…)
Then it’s round 2 of OOTD cos’ my turquoise dress was wet.
It amazed me that a purple scarf and Shourouk necklace can do so much to a casual outfit.
So, that’s about it! Our mini getaway… Now, let’s go pick Isabelle…
(Note: Both of us really suffer from baby separation anxiety)
Now we are older and we have a job and a family and we are real grown up… SO WHAT? We are happy that sometimes we can still be silly and stupid and jump into pools! Or tell silly jokes and thoroughly enjoy kid’s games. I believe you are young until you aren’t, which I believe is never, cos’ you are never not young! Get that?
We aren’t perfect characters for marriage. We still struggle like everyone else, but somehow we are celebrating 10 years of relationship this year and we still kinda like each other. I guess that means we’re doing okay :)
Thank you so much for reading and wishing you a lovely weekend!
