There is one thing I am really bad at, and it’s keeping gifts a surprise. At the end of December, my husband and I are going to celebrate our anniversary, so I decided to write him a love letter. I started to prepare it quite in advance, and I knew that it would be hard to keep it a secret. By the time the ink dried, my excitement was already unmanageable. I know, I know, there is something wrong with me, but I can’t wait until the official day to give my gifts. Why wait? The celebrations are usually fun anyway. Receiving a gift unexpectedly (not because it’s time to) makes the whole moment more joyful and exciting. Moreover, similar to that idea of life being short as the reason to start your meal with a dessert, I believe that we don't have to wait for some special day to show our love and appreciation (and to give gifts). Any day is good enough for that.
