Apparently, in Estonia (...and also Finland!), Valentine's Day is more focused on spending time with friends as opposed to be all lovey dovey, doesn't that sound nice?
I have never been particularly fond of Valentines, but I do think it's a good reason to use as an excuse to spend time with the people you care about the most. Whether it is going out for a meal on the day, during the week of Valentines, or having a picnic in the living room!
I was lucky enough to be invited over to my Estonian cat Mari (who isn't actually a cat, but she calls herself that, and sometimes I feed her, making her dinner if she hasn't been over for some time, meow! It all makes sense... I promise). She was having a clothes swap Part 2, and had made lots of delicious food for us this time. She makes a mean carrot cake! Which sadly doesn't have a recipe form, it must be black magic or something... We were a bunch of people there and we had such a great evening just catching up, swapping more clothes, and feasting *smiles*
This morning, I had decided to do my new 14th February tradition and start the day with waffles! So I made a Norwegian style waffle, and topped it with mashed banana and nutella. I might hunt me down some Norwegian brown cheese later on, if I dare brave the world, haha!
What are your plans for the day? Seeing a special someone or hanging out with friends? Maybe having a movie marathon? Who knows! Just make sure it's a good one!
