You meet for brunch!
I love the internet and the spoils that come with it… international shopping, social networking and video chat! Today is our 3rd wedding anniversary and unfortunately we’re spending it apart… very far apart!
I’m in San Francisco and Emma in Melbourne, so what do you do for your anniversary when you’re so far apart? You have brunch!
My hat goes off to Emma, she thinks outside the box and certainly makes an impression.
I was told, be in your office at 12pm – San Francisco time, don’t be late. Further instructions will be given to you then.
We met online at 12pm San Fran time, 7am Melbourne time. She then forwarded me instructions on where I had to go via google maps. A 10 minute round trip to pick up lunch that she had ordered and paid for!
By the time I returned to my office with lunch she had prepared herself breakfast. Voila – breakfast / lunch = brunch. And thanks to skype, we’re now having a wedding anniversary date. Super-cool!
Surprisingly, our date 8000 miles apart over video chat felt quite normal. Of course after a few poses and camera shots to share with our awesome $30DN fans, you! We settled comfortably into our date. The experience felt real, almost as if Emma was sitting across from me. Of course it’s not as good as having her with me in person, but it’s the next best thing considering the distance between us. Oh, and it was very cool when I walked in with bags of food and others in the office wanting to know what the occasion was.
Next time you find yourself miles apart from your lover, and if you have decent internet for video chat, I highly recommend you research the web for a local restaurant that will order take out. Then send your date on a scavenger hunt. It’s super easy to organise, can be very cheap but most importantly the rewards are unbelievably high! Your date will feel cared for and thought of.
Happy 3rd Anniversary Emma! I love the wonderful surprise!
