valentine’s day 2016!
it’s hard to beat a valentines living in europe!
since it was on a sunday this year, i planned our
saturday night and chase had a surprise for sunday.
i started things off with a fun day in amsterdam seeing
some new sights, we had a little break for chase’s MBA classes,
then went to dinner out at the new wagamama in central station.
we started things off with gyoza + edamame, a winning combo. soba salmon teriyaki was a winner, as was chicken & shrimp pad thai ^^
ending with mochi is always a good idea ^^
sunday morning before church i made us some dutch pancakes and we opened a
few gifts. we always try to get each other tickets to an event or date for valentine’s
gifts, so we continued that! i got chase tickets to a canal dinner cruise in amsterdam
next week (along with a cute red raincoat just in case he needs it with all of the
rain here :)…and he got me treats + planned a little getaway for us leaving
that day! he has business in belgium later this week, so he planned the cutest
nights in brussels and bruges before his business in antwerp – where i’ll tag along!
i plan literally all of our trips, so this has been fun to have chase plan & to be surprised.
pretty fun when it takes just 2 hours to get to brussels…
also, how cute is my valentine with those hearts in the background?i LOVE belgium, so this was the perfect place to go for love day!
i’ll share more of our time here (and a belgium guide) later this week.lots of chocolates, waffles, and hearts made for a perfect valentines night.
we also shared our exciting news after dinner which was the sweetest
end to the holiday. we feel wrapped in so much love! (more here)
