Back to the post :P
This year Valentine's day has been non existent for us, my husband is in Sydney for work and I'm in Melbourne (that's our home). We only see each other on weekends now. It's going to be like this for another 5 weeks. Sigh. This week has been the worst yet, and next week he's not coming back on the weekend so I won't see him for 2 weeks, super sad face. Thank God for friends and family, I've been looked after really well.
To make up for missing vday I organised a little get away weekend a couple of weeks ago.One thing is for sure I really enjoy traveling with my husband especially if we're driving. On the highest volume we put on our silly voices and sing along to the music. Then when we get tired of singing we have big conversations then when we get really really tired we have silent moments. I love the feeling of being silent with someone and it's not awkward at all, you're both simply content to be in each others company.
What makes me feel loved is quality time, it's definitely my love language. I would rather spend time with my husband like go out on a date and chat for hours rather than be showered with gifts and never see him. It's how I like building relationships too, spending time one-on-one with girl friends.There are others though that feel especially loved by receiving gifts, or by being physically touched, or by receiving words of affirmation..and so on. It's amazing how enriching a relationship can be when you both know what your love language is. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend you read the 5 Languages of Love and find out what you (and your partner's) primary love language is. It took our relationship to a whole new level. If you do I'd love to hear about your experience!
Great Ocean Road and stayed at Torquay's Peppers for a night. I thought Torquay was pretty average but if you love surfing then this is the place for you. It's famous for its surf beaches (bells beach in particular) which holds the famous Rip Curl comp every year. So we spent most of our weekend exploring the surrounding areas from Anglesea to Lorne. At Anglesea I fell in love with the most gorgeous cafe the Red Till check them out.
I took a few snaps, most are of the Split Point Light House near Anglesea which I absolutely loved! we stayed there for a while and enjoyed a cold drink at the Willows Tea House and as you can see below it is decorated beautifully with those colourful flags.
