A Romantic Weekend!

Calvin picked me up at work on Friday evening. I was supposed to go out for dinner with Louise and Naomi, but he had other plans. He wanted to surprise me and they were in on the secret. We were going away for the weekend and I could only take this backpack. Calvin had a little Asos shopping spree and he assured me that it contained everything I needed. He packed some lovely things for me and it felt like it was my birthday all over again. I like pink and he always makes sure he's got something in my favorite color for me. He's such a sweetheart. I was very happy with the bag and the surprise. Calvin assured me I was going to be fine with everything he brought and that I had to trust him.
He drove to the ferry which would take us to a small island. It was great to stand on the deck of the boat, look over the railing and see water all around me. It felt liberating. We snuggled and kissed for a while and people were whooping and whistling at us. That made me a little bit insecure, but also insanely proud. When we arrived on the island we only had a few minutes by car ahead of us. We stopped at a place near the beach where Calvin had made reservations for a luxurious tent. We were going camping, but in style. The tent was cozy. It was high with wooden furniture and the bed was soft with warm blankets. It cooled down at night, but during the days the weather was great. I love camping this way and I can see myself doing it again. Calvin brought a lot of food. All kinds of delicious, but easy to prepare ingredients. He also had champagne, because he knows how much I like it. It was the perfect romantic beginning of a long weekend away. 
On Saturday breakfast was ready when I woke up. Calvin was already back from a walk to the bakery, so we started the day with fresh rolls and pastries. I can't start my day without a cup of tea. Because of his job Calvin always has samples and he brought a lot of different flavors for me to try. We spent the rest of the day lounging on the beach. Calvin had even managed to find me a bikini that fit me perfectly. There was a light and easy to fold dress in my bag as well. I was supposed to wear that when we went out for dinner that night. We had a meal outside on the terrace while we could see the sea. It was the best meal I ever had. The food was delicious and the company absolutely wonderful.
On Sunday we had another fresh breakfast. This time Calvin brought croissants. After a long, hot shower it was time to pack. We spent a few hours on the beach before taking the ferry home again. It was only a weekend trip, but on Monday I felt completely relaxed and well rested.
