Valentines - Long Distance?

Sorry about the lack of posting, its been a week! I got the flu and didnt get out of bed for a few days, and yesterday the cold weather had caused a cable in the telegraph pole outside to snap, meaning we had no phone line or internet!

Im pretty sure none of you know this, and im a little skeptical about writing this because a lot of people will judge me for it, but im gonna go for it.

This valentines day im sending my gift across the ocean to another country. The boy? A dutch boy who ive been talking to since i was about 14, whos always been there for me, who ive never met and who ive been dating for coming up two years. Yep, you read that right, im in an online relationship, untill april that is :)

Its hard not being able to see the person you love, especially when all my friends are making plans to go out on a date, or stay home and cook a romantic meal for their boyfriends. I think one of the most important gifts you can give to someone, whether they be 5 miles away or 500 is something meaningful. Sure chocolates and flowers are nice, but i prefer something a little more personal!

Thats what im sending, tommorow morning!
To most people it wont look like anything special, but im sure my other half will appreciate it!

The picture im sending is from the Etsy seller cultscenes, it came in a cardboard frame but i pull it apart and put it in a blue wooden frame i bought online. This has significant meaning to me and my other half because ive never watched wall-e before, im not quiet sure why because we have it on dvd, but regardless, it came up in converstaion some time last year i beleive that id never watched it, he agree'd itd be the first thing we watch together when we meet in april, hes already seen it, but knowing my love of all things animated he wanted to watch it with me for the first time. Plus from what i hear wall-e and eve are a super cute couple!  
The frame's blue because its my favourite colour ;)
The card i bought is again from etsy, what can i say i love that place for unique handmade stuff. The seller woodlandink has some beautiful cards so if youre looking for something special, check it out!
I think it goes without saying why this card is appropriate, but after nearly 2 years im so excited to finally be meeting him!

Finally ill be sending 2 bags of minstrels, Stefan (the boyfriend) always see's me eating them on skype and was curious about them. I dont think they sell them in the Netherlands, so im sending 2 bags, one for Stefan and one for his brother. I just hope he doesnt fall in love with them as theyre so hard to get in europe!

What are you getting your other half for valentines? Or are you gifting yourself something this valentines?
