I sort of have a love/hate relationship with Valentines Day. Without getting into details, Valentine's Day, for me, has never been about romance with a sweetheart and all the frills that go with it. I wanted it to be but, it never turned out that way. So for after longing for a super special Valentines Day for years and never really getting one I've kind of poo-poo'd Valentine's Day and become somewhat of a non-romantic. Mind you, I still love chocolate, vintage hearts and lacey things but, I've learned to treat myself to those things if I want them.
One thing that has always been there for me on Valentine's Day are my friends. Throughout the years I've had very special friends that have given me flowers and sweet treats because they cared about me. For me, Valentine's Day is about friends. Those people that are with you no matter how far they are from you and will listen to you vent about everything.
This Valentine is for you my friends. My real friends. I consider all my blog friends my real friends not random strangers I've met online. I realize I've never met any of you. But, I do know that you are all there when I need you when it counts most.
