Nope. No flowers. No card. No cake. No romantic dinner.
It’s been 34 years since my husband and I have been together but Valentine’s day is one occasion we don’t celebrate. See, we met in our college days when our allowance was just enough for our board and lodging. To this day, that habit continues. Even if he can now afford it, he thinks that flowers are just way too expensive on Valentine’s day. Well it doesn’t mean Butch does not surprise me with flowers, or gifts. Doing something special comes during ordinary days.
Since there is no Valentine’s day surprise , I thought I’d share this cute video to warm your hearts.
I didn’t think much of this video when the PR of Dove sent this via email today. In the video, they captured real men as they cooked up a little Valentine surprise for their significant partners. These men agreed to join them for one night to express their real selves, showing how much they’d do to make their women special even on those days when they least expect to.
I have yet to receive something unusual like what these men did in this “Real Men Surprise Their Dates” video.
Aww so sweet. I shared it to Butch when he overheard the music so I played it one more time while typing this entry.
He watched and kidded me that he can sing much better than those real men. To prove his point and to my utter surprise, he crazily sang along and ended the song with a kiss.
