Guest Post by the Lovely Nicole " A Letter to my Dream Valentine"

I have a lovely friend who is very new to my life, but she is amazing and we've clicked so quickly it feels like I've known her for a long time.  I found her through her blog and we started talking alot more via email and twitter after she won my first official blog giveaway :D  About a week ago she asked me if I would be interested in doing a guest blog post.  I was so excited and honored, so of course I agreed.  I invited her to do a guest post on my blog as well, and she graciously let me pick her topic.  Since Valentines day is a week away I suggested she write about who she would pick as her Dream Valentine if she could pick anyone in the world, and the reasons why she would pick that person.  So without further adieu let's welcome Nicole!

Hello readers! I’m Nicole and I blog over at Blogging Bissy - a simple blog about my life, my faith, my awkwardness and everything in between. I’m delighted to be guest posting on Kristin’s blog today!

I was asked to write about my dream Valentine.

I wracked my brain over which dream boat I should choose: the Brit I’ve loved since discovering his music in 1997? That blue eyed beauty who has been overheard saying Seattle is one of his favorite cities? Or maybe the deliciously tattooed athlete that models in his underwear?

Then it hit me: my dream Valentine (this year) is Mr. Chris Pine.

And to honor my love for him I thought I would write him a letter outlining all of the different reasons why I love him and why he should be my Valentine.


My dearest Chris,

I’m writing you this letter to tell you how much I despise the fact that you’re not my Valentine. You should be my Valentine this year, and every year you’re on this Earth. This is not some fickle love, either. I don’t love you simply because you have that dreamy pout and killer blue eyes. No, this love is real.

Don’t believe me? I can prove it.

I’ve loved you since you were in Princess Diaries 2: A Royal Engagement.

You were wonderfully charming and showed your true colors when you backed down from the crown at the end of the movie. It’s obvious that’s what kind of man you are because, let’s face it, movies don’t lie.

I carefully scoured every magazine and internet picture looking for your handsome face after seeing that movie. And then, to my delight, you were in another movie that I knew I was going to love.

That’s right: you alone made Star Trek sexy. You turned this girl into a Trekkie (well, kind of. I mean, the old movies and shows kind of creep me out, but I love the movie you were in!). You brought a new and amazing flavor to “live long and prosper.” Yowza.

Not only do you make me fall in love with you with your movie roles, but it’s who you are off-screen that melts my heart, too.

You’re a dog lover, and I’m a dog lover.

You carry pens around, and I use pens daily for the list making I do.

You work out and hydrate yourself afterwards. I also work out and need to hydrate! Share the water with  me?

You read. Oh now come on, boy, I read, too!!

I’m pretty sure you can see by now that we’re totally and completely made for each other. But if you still need a bit of convincing, I have a few more points for you.

You drink coffee daily. I DRINK COFFEE DAILY! And I’ve always wanted a dream boat to deliver my coffee – that coffee-delivering-dream-boat could should be you.

You were glasses, I wear glasses. Correction: I actually wear my contacts on a daily basis, but if you were going to rock your glasses, I would also rock mine. Maybe we should get matching glasses? Too much too soon? I can wait.

Any way you look at it, Mr. Pine, I think we’re meant to be lifelong Valentines. Because, no matter what happens, you’ll always be the man I love to look at. Always. You make me laugh. You make me proud. You make me hold my breath and make fists in nervousness that you’ll get hurt, but you always come out just fine. You make my heart go pitter-patter when you have those tender moments.

I’m sure you’ll be able to do all of that for me in real life, too.

So until then, Valentine, I’ll keep dreaming of you bringing me coffee and looking oh so fine.

We have a very delightful future ahead of us and I’m sure it will be just as romantic and delightful as the movies. Because, again, movies don’t lie, do they?

Until the moment you deliver that first coffee…

All my love,



  1. Nicole, Nice to meet you! This love letter was fantastic. After reading it...I'm pretty sure you guys should be together. I mean come on! You have so much in common...especially the pens! Love it!
