How do I love thee? Let me count the ways… (Valentine’s getaway in Rizal)

In that 1-2 hours’ drive we spent from Manila to our Valentine’s getaway destination in Rizal, the possibility of falling further in love caught me by surprise.

I love the way you smile at everyone

Your warm demeanor towards everyone is admirable. You’re generous when it comes to giving out smiles to everyone, and I mean everyone – from the friendly faces in the front office to the cheerful employees we pass by.

I love how you love great food

Calories don’t really count when we’re together. Delicious pizza becomes part of our ‘diet’ and we both wouldn’t have it any other way.

I love your sense of adventure

You know what they say about how opposites attract? We’re exactly that. While I would rather stay inside the room and catch my favorite series on TV, you’re the one who pushes for activities like archery, biking, and swimming. And yes, getting tired is no big deal if it means getting to do these with you.

I love how you fall fast asleep 

Especially after a long day of having fun. The way your eyes are slightly open along with your mouth plus the way your nose crinkles when you’re dreaming are probably one of the cutest sights I’ll get to see.

I love spending time in beautiful places with you 

From the busy streets of Manila to secret hideaways and relaxing getaway destinations, we’ll never run out of beautiful places to go to. Wherever it may be, know I’ll go with you.
