Valentine's Day (Apart)

February 14, 2016

When you're in a long distance relationship it's tough not being able to spend Valentine's Day together. This year will be Anthony and I's second Valentine's Day together but we have yet to actually spend it together, physically. (Not that kind of physical lol) But I don't know if it's just because I'm getting older but Valentine's Day is or actually has never been that important to me. Maybe because every Valentine's Day prior to when I met Anthony, I was single AF lol. 
But I will never forget Valentine's Day of 2014, which was when I started to develop this crush on Anthony. We talked occasionally before this since we did work together, but something about that day I started to really take notice of him. I was just clocking into work and both Anthony and I were on the same register that night. He was already there by the time I clocked in. There were two open registers next to him and I was debating whether or not I should go to the one right next to him or the one two registers down from him. I decided to be creepy and get on the register next to him. 
I was dressed up all nicely and even curled my hair, but ironically it wasn't for Anthony. I had a small crush on some other guy at school and I usually ran into him in between classes so I decided to look all cute, but chickened out and couldn't talk to him. So when I got to work I was a little bummed out because I was beating myself up over the fact that I was a wuss lol. But when I got onto the register next to Anthony I didn't know why I felt so nervous around him. Then he goes and says, "Your hair looks really nice today," I was taken aback at that point because even though I did do my hair that day, it was very badly damaged and I had a nasty do-it-at-home ombre in my hair, so any compliments to my hair at that point of my life was rare. For the remainder of the night I caught myself glancing at Anthony ever so often. I would turn bright red when he caught me looking but he would just give me a dopey smile like he was happy that I was looking at him. Then I remember laughing at him because he was ringing up a family and the couple's baby was glaring at him like he's never seen a cute Italian guy before. 
That was the only time we've spent Valentine's Day together since we first met and I would be lying if I said not being able to spend Valentine's Day together doesn't suck. But since we're away from each other about 90% of the time you learn to adjust to it. We're not avid Valentine's Day celebrators but sometimes the holiday kind of reminds you how much you miss one another. But there is a silver lining in all this because although it does remind us about how much it sucks to be away from each other, it also emphasizes how much we're willing to be together.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! 
Whether you have a Valentine or not don't forget to show all your loved ones that they're loved and appreciated! Also who else is excited that The Walking Dead is back on tonight?!?! Sadly I'm going to miss it because I'll be stuck at work. Maybe I can convince my coworkers to switch our tv's to AMC so I can watch it lol.
