Valentine’s Day is coming up, and while Tor and I are that kind of couple that believes each day should be Valentine’s Day, we can’t help but still feel sentimental during the holiday especially with this about to be our first as a married couple.
For most of our relationship (almost seven years!), Tor and I have actually spent our Valentine’s Day apart. He is usually abroad filming and I am usually busy at New York Fashion Week. This year, for the first time in a few years, his February is a bit more open (until his schedule picks up again) so I chose to stay behind from New York and spend some romantic, quality time together this Valentine’s Day.
It’s our first Valentine’s Day as husband and wife, and while our first anniversary also quickly approaches (today marks our 10 month anniversary), this past year we have had much to reflect on. Our first year of marriage has been filled with adventure, excitement, and most importantly – love. And while a part of me wishes we were still traveling abroad this month embarking on new adventures together, it’ll actually be really nice to settle in our home in Los Angeles together and take it easy.
At the moment, we do not have any specific plans for February 14, especially since we typically have a date night out with just us every week, but I will find any excuse to dress up for a lovely dinner with my husband – even if we are just at home! I originally wore this velvet dress for a friend’s birthday dinner in Paris last month, but the minute I saw it I knew it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day.
