It’s our anniversary today! We have been together for 2 years now .. I still can’t believe how fast this is going and how we’re dealing with this relationship since we are in the “long distance” one (Marc from Berlin, Me from the Czech rep.)
We met each other on Instagram around Christmas 2014. Marc commented on my picture and even though I usually don’t respond to anyone, I made an exception that day (and I’m really grateful for that ❤ ). We first met face to face in Prague after 3 months of texting and calling for hours. We kept seeing each other until summer, when I had to leave for the Summer work and travel program in the USA. We were afraid of this distance first but we handled it pretty well in the end.
During the summer we were thinking that it would be amazing to make our first vacation happen in New York City .. what an idea! After knowing each other just for a while, he came to NY to see me and we enjoyed those days as much as we could.This is how the maps looked like when we were supposed to meet each other after 3 long months. We had an amazing time in Central park .. a “little” quiet place in the middle of crowded city. Back in July I bought tickets to “Spirit of New York” dinner cruise. It was STUNNING! Although pricey, It was worth it!Haha .. It was tasty!
Few months passed and we are still together, still happy, still handling that distance. I’m moving to Berlin after my school duties are done (one more year to go) .. We always say that love is much bigger than distance if people really belong to each other.
After all the best things in life are the ones that are unexpected, right?
I wanted to surprise him this year with a little gift box . It is a very fun way to personalise and put some little trinkets that kind of tell a story when they are all together in a box. It is also very simple yet very efficient. Marc actually loves my hand made gifts so I always try to make some on our anniversary, his birthday etc..
For example I put in some polaroid photos of me holding “2”, sending kisses etc… Then I included Marc’s favourite Czech chocolate and a little sleeping angel as a talisman (I bought myself the same one but not the sleeping one but the wondering one – our personalities).
We’ve been wearing the same black cord macrame bracelet with an infinity loop since we started dating but Marc lost it a few months ago so I just had to buy him another one .. two actually, just to be sure :).
This cute little present is a flash disc with a hidden surprise. I decided to make a video full of our travel memories and Marc really loved it. It was the smallest present of all, but the best one for sure.
And what did I get from Marc? Lush HEAVEN, makeup blender, face mask, SPA day and lots of LOVE <3.
We spent all afternoon in wellness & SPA centre .. enjoying the large warm pool, hot tub and many different types of sauna. After that we enjoyed our time in a romantic Bali bath in rose petals and rose oil. It is called “Bali bath” because the bath was made of the unique stone from the island of Bali.
So this is it! I hope you celebrated New Year’s Eve properly and I wish you all the best in 2017 <3. Be safe, be happy, do whatever you want to do and make your wish come true.
