Real-life Pinning



I love to see the world,

to daydream,

to make lists and plans and prophecies,

to lose myself on Pinterest

and ..

to make my boyfriend terribly happy,

I made him a very speial gift for Valentine's Day.


Yes, I know that it was quite a while ago, but I'm so proud of my doing, that I was dying to write a post, no matter how short, just to show you some pictures and to inspire you for the next time you're out of gift ideas for your partner.


"Andrei?!?! What are you doing ?!" I yell, running out the door.

"What? Nothing." he answers with a guilty figure.

"Did you look in the trunk?" I raise an eyebrow and I barley quench my laughter.

I kept up his gift there until I got the chance to pack it properly. How can it be a great present without a big bow?

He responds with a second too late "No." - By now he's thinking if I can tell that he's lying or not.

Geez, he's adorable,

"You sure?" and I straighten my mouth in a disapproving manner. I repeat: "Sure you didn't?"

"Yes .." I can feel his panic.

"I saw you out the window!" and before my laughter shuts my eyes, I see him blush.

"Hahaha, you ruined everything! Now it's too late anyway, come on, let me show you what you got .." we go up the stair and I start my presentation:

"It's a world map .."

I printed it on a canvas large enough to easily distinguish the countries. I prepared tiny flags, black and white to mark the places we're going to visit. Our life long dreams, must-see cities and favorite picture beaches.

The remaining "pin" s ( I love to think of Pinterest when I say this ) are for the places that already provided us stories and precious memories.

We started our pinning with Romania. Red. Strawberries, love and family.

We intend to use this color only for the place we call home..


We both dream of living in foreign countries, even for a few years, some adventures and some drama.

We concluded that life is worth living in variety, rather than luxury .. I think it's these views that we share are what make us a stronger couple.


We now pin all our sites, we place kisses on each corner of our bodies and hope to visit every corner of the world.


We finish our strawberries and luggage,

we're in a hurry now!

We're flying to Cologne today.


A little pin is already there - we've been there two years ago for the first time together at a 30 Seconds to Mars concert.

Speaking of our favorite band, do you know the song City of Angels? This summer we hope to get there.




Pentru ca

iubesc sa vad lumea,

sa visez cu ochii deschisi,

sa fac liste, planuri si sa insemnez profetii,

sa ma pierd pe Pinterest


sa-mi fac iubitul fericit,

i-am facut un cadou cu totul diferit de Valentine's Day.


Da, stiu ca a trecut deja mult de atunci, dar sunt atat de mandra de isprava mea, incat merita sa fac o postare, cat de scurta, doar sa va arat pozele si sa va inspir pentru urmatoarea data cand nu stiti ce sa-i oferiti partenerului de viata.


"Andrei?!?! Ce faci?!" urlu iesind alergand pe usa.

"Ce? Nimic." imi spune uimit, cu o figura vinovata.

"Te-ai uitat in portbagaj?" ridic o spranceana si abia imi astampar rasul.

Acolo am pastrat cadoul pana sa gasesc putin timp sa il pot ambala. Nu e un dar reusit fara o fundita mare.

Imi raspunde cu o secunda prea tarziu "Nu." - pe acum se gandeste daca e sau nu evident ca minte.

Ce simpatic e, ma gandesc induiosata,

"Sigur?" si-mi indrept gura, dezaprobatoare. Repet: "Siguur?"

"Da.." se panicheaza, il simt.

"Te-am vazut pe geam!" si inainte sa imi inchida rasul ochii, il vad cum se inroseste. 

"Hahaha, ai stricat tot! Acuma hai, daca tot ai vazut deja, sa-ti arat ce ai primit.. " urcam sus si incep prezentarea:


"E o harta a lumii.."

Am printat-o pe canvas suficient de mare incat sa se distinga cu usurinta tarile. Am pregatit stegulete micute, albe si negre care sa marcheze locurile pe care urmeaza sa le vizitam.

Restul "pin"-urilor ( iarta-mi limbajul, dar am trait prea mult in lumea Pinterest sa ma pot abtine  ) vor insemna locurile care ne-au oferit deja povesti si amintri.

Am inceput cu Romania. Rosu. Capsuni, iubire si familie.

Ne-am propus sa folosim culoarea aceasta numai pentru locul unde stabilim ca e acasa..


Amandoi visam sa ne mutam din tara, macar pentru cativa ani, cateva nebunii si cateva drame.

Am ajuns la concluzia ca viata merita traita in varietate, chiar si fara cantitate.. cred ca aceste opinii pe care le impartim amandoi, ne fac sa fim asa un cuplu puternic.


Punem acum restul pin-urilor, ne sarutam fiecare colt al corpului si speram sa vizitam fiecare colt al lumii.


Terminam capsunile si bagajele,

ne grabim acum.

Astazi plecam in Koln.


Pin-ul l-am pus deja acolo - acum doi ani am fost pentru prima data impreuna, aveau 30 Seconds to Mars concert si nu am stat pe ganduri.

Apropo de trupa noastra preferata, stii piesa City of Angels? In vara speram sa ajungem si acolo.

Find me on Pinterest and start pinning with me.

Here I am!
