andrew got me a valentine's day present. i wasn't expecting anything from him, the thought hadn't even crossed my mind, so that was a pleasant surprise. it brought light to what would have been a much harder day.
christiana and i don't actually experience valentine's day this year- we'll be on the plane, and because of the direction we're flying and the fact that we're crossing the international date line(australia's 16 hours ahead of new york), we will never technically be living february 14th. the plan though, is to order champagne on the plane and toast each other and our trip. seems like a good way to start off.
how weird to realize that there's this whole day i don't get to live.
