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.
Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preseti 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.

valentines 2016!5sunday 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.

  • Cutest! I like the idea of giving tickets or experiences for valentines. It takes the pressure off finding more items for each other. Have fun in Belgium!

  • Ahhh Brussels! Such beautiful architecture. The waffles nearly gave me a heart attack haha. I think I should’ve ordered one with less cream (meaning, anything less than a bucket load!) I love the little hearts! I so wanted to go to Bruges. Next time!

  • Happy belated Valentine’s Day! I love the idea of getting tickets/experiences for Valentine’s. That’s really sweet and something you’ll always cherish and look back on!
