Our First Valentine's Day Together

We had a really fun first Valentine's Date. While Will joked with me for days leading up to the date that we were going to a Monstor Truck Ralley and McDonalds, he of course impressed me by NOT taking me to either of those.

Instead he picked me up and he looked absolutely snazzy in his suit. I was wearing a sleeveless red dress with a red shawl, and a red rose in my hair. He also surprised me with some Valentine Balloons and two "Kissing Bears" (where thier hearts light up in red when they kiss).

He told me the reason why he did not get me flowers was because my ex-boyfriend had already sent me some. *sigh* Yes that is true. He (the ex) had sent me a dozen red roses, which was nice, but we had broken up.

I had made a homemade Valentine's Day Card for Will - which he loved. It had candied hearts glued to it and all. :)

We went to dinner at an Italian Restaurant in Bellevue. While we were seated there I remember him telling me that I was the most beautiful girl in the entire restaurant. I felt all gooey inside. :)
After dinner, we went to a movie theater and saw "50 First Dates".

Upon driving me home, I fell asleep in the car. When I awoke, I noticed we were no where near my apartment. I asked him where we were going and he said "I'm trying to find the lighthouse." It clicked what he was doing - he knew I loved lighthouses and he was taking me there. And being from Portland, he was not exactly sure how to get there.

So I guided him to the Mukilteo Lighthouse. Once we got there, we stepped outside and walked over to the gate in front of the lighthouse. It was dark outside and very cold and windy too. He held me close and swept the hair out of my face that the wind had blown. He cupped my chin in his hand and gave me the most romantic kiss of my lifetime. The scene truly felt like it was right out of a romance movie. I loved it.
