So, how do I even begin to explain the amount of love for my boyfriend right now? Well, let me tell you a little story, so you can understand where's this coming from. I spotted this book a few months ago in a bookstore downtown and immediately started saving for it. It was going so slow and my piggy bank was almost always empty due to everyday needs like eating, drinking, smoking, going out to lunches, buying much needed make up etc... Then came the fear of it being sold before I could buy it. Stopping by every week to check if it has sold already became a routine. Month second, I devised a plan to hide it behind other books every time I come, so that no one could see it. We all know people are too lazy to dig out and search for stuff in shops, so this technique was proven to be the right one. I'm guessing this would go on for months to come, if it wasn't for my boy, who knows me oh so well.
It was our anniversary two weeks ago and while he was handing me this rectangular shaped object wrapped in pretty pink paper, he smiled and I knew something was up! So I opened it and screamed and jumped around for a bit and hugged him and repeated the same thing a few times. I know, I got the best guy ever.
So now you get my excitement over this, can't wait to start flipping through the pages! Besides some books on design I'm already reading, this will help me so much with creating my collection and building my portfolio. I'll keep you posted on the process!
