2nd anniversary

Helsinki, 3 degrees


If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden.


Yesterday I, together with my boyfriend A, celebrated our 2nd anniversary! The date 13th of each month has a unique meaning for us since two years ago we went on our first date and now we're living together! Usually, the number 13 is thought of as unlucky in this part of the world, but I like to think that we challenge the odds by celebrating the day instead of being afraid of it. And after all, in e.g. Italy the number 13 is thought to be lucky whereas 17 is the unlucky number. How ironic isn't that?

The day started with a wonderful breakfast including fresh strawberries, juice, grapes, cheese, baguette, yoghurt, ham and Karelian pasties. I was smiling all day since I had our special day in mind.


After work, I went to pick up some dresses I'd taken to a sewer for some alternations and amendments. When I got home, I was greeted by flowers, a card and lovely present: beautiful earrings!


Later on we went for dinner to steak restaurant BBQ House, since I know my boyfriend loves a good steak. As a starter, we had "Seleção de três tapas": serrano ham with mushrooms, vegetables and artichoke and grilled green-lipped mussel and avocado. Delicious!


As main course A had a T-bone steak with foie gras butter, tomatoes and cheese potatoes, and me on the other hand I went with grilled seabass, green-lipped mussels, crayfish and potato chips. Yummy!


This morning I was very tired but managed to get up in order to go to restaurant Flada 13 for brunch. One can definitely say that our stomachs have been well treated these last couple of days, haha!


Jokes aside, I'm very happy to have A on my side. These two years have taught me a lot about life, love and everything else. I hope I'm lucky enough to have him in my life for the rest of it.
